Event description

The world over, business leaders are faced with a series of universal challenges:

  • How do I get more customers, without breaking the bank?
  • How do I keep my employees motivated and productive?
  • How do I make the most of my time, and where do I spend it?
  • How do I attract money into the business, to grow?

What will I learn?

On day one, you'll hear from 2 expert speakers who will cover:

Inspiring Leadership:

Attendees will explore:

  • The Trust Equation - and why it affects how people respond to your leadership.
  • The 5 Flames of Motivation - how to inspire others to stay highly motivated.
  • 5 key qualities that Inspired Leaders focus on.
  • The Mastery Model - and how to apply it and become an outstanding leader.

You will become a more self-aware individual, define a clear path to further developing your own leadership skills, build more credibility and influence on those around you, and improve your leadership skills and confidence. 

Stand-out Marketing:

We will cover areas such as:

  • The principles of strategic marketing planning.
  • Why your brand is really important.
  • How to approach your brand positioning and differentiate your offer.
  • What it takes to deliver a stand-out communications programme.
