Do you know the purpose of your work?

Are you a team player?

Are you a great communicator?

Can you easily persuade someone to see your point of view?

Can you think outside the box to solve problems creatively? 

Let's find out!

What business are you in? Think about this question - no matter where you work or who for what is the essence or key purpose of your job/department/organisation? Answers may vary but the priorities you may give to elements of the answer will be key - particularly if you want to set yourself up in a business.

We will have fun doing an interactive exercise which at first looks simple until we ask the question what business were we in?

This is not a lecture but a journey to learn more about ourselves. Come prepared to get actively involved and bring your contribution on the day. Only 20 spaces available so book quickly!

Date: 4th September from 6:00pm - 9:00pm

About the Trainer

Iain Thomson spent most of his career at the Bank of England, holding positions in exchange control, foreign exchange, open market operations and training, before a two-year secondment to the Central Bank of Swaziland, sponsored by the International Monetary Fund. There, he was director of foreign exchange reserves, and responsible for advising the governor, developing local capacity to manage financial markets, and establishing Swaziland’s first stock market. On return to the UK, he was involved in helping various Eastern European and former Soviet Union central banks to modernise. He eventually created and was appointed to the role of Head of Training & Development at the Bank. After leaving the Bank in 1999 he set up his own consultancy firm, dealing with all aspects of performance management and working with nearly 200 organisations across 38 countries in both the public and private sectors.
