The Business Conference 2008
Venue: East Midlands Conference Centre
Date: Tuesday 30th September 2008
This session will introduce you to why training sometimes doesn’t work, the importance of Emotional Intelligence for effective performance, teamwork and motivation, how to develop your people for sustainable progress, productivity and performance.
Did you know that a major factor in your business and life success is your Emotional Intelligence? In fact, studies of star performers show that 85% of what sets them apart from average performers is superior EI skills. This seminar will demonstrate how our 3 brains work and the role attitudes play in how people think, feel and perform. If you really want to make the most of your people/talent, then this is a seminar for you.
Lisa is an Executive Coach, Facilitator and Author (Emotional Intelligence Coaching, Kogan Page – release date Jan 09) and will share her experiences of working with a wide range of organisations in the UK, Europe and the Middle East.
Skills Means Business!
Tendering, Procurement and London 2012
This seminar will give you an insight into how your business can win a share of the £125 billion spent annually by the public sector. The purpose of this seminar will be to challenge the myth that tendering in the public sector is only for ‘big’ businesses and further your knowledge and understanding of public sector procurement. To help illustrate this the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games will be used as a live case study.
The 2012 Games will be the biggest event staged in the United Kingdom and the East Midlands is committed to maximising the benefits from them. This seminar will give you an insight into how London 2012 is advertising contracts and opening up private sector supply chain opportunities for small and medium-sized businesses. The session will focus more specifically on CompeteFor, the online service that matches businesses to relevant London 2012 opportunities, exploring how to use the system and how businesses can benefit from using the system, including how the Business Link service in the region supports and complements CompeteFor.
Delivered by representatives from East Midlands Development Agency.
Formula for Success
The Formula for Success seminar is about understanding and developing your own personal formula, which works for you in order to facilitate business success. Certain key idiosyncrasies are common to us all, however to be successful you must learn to recognise your own characteristics, nurture them and develop them into a successful business formula.
However, you must also be conscious that for every positive habit, negative ones also exist and these have a habit of sabotaging all of your best efforts. Understanding and forming good habits will help you stay focused and make decisions in cement not in sand. This seminar will address what those common disciplines are and how to recognise them, so that you can overcome your fears and uncertainties in business by developing the habit of confidence.
