September is a wrap!

We were “phototastic” this month for our event. The talented Victoria Lee helped seminar attendees learn how to get the most from their camera for those all important social media and Blog shots!

Following on as usual we welcomes around 90 businesses who came to listen, learn, collaborate and help each other. The sound levels were through the roof!

So many testimonials and thanks around the room – all genuine, all positive, all driving our Businesses to expansion, creativity and growth.

So – come on – you keep missing it! We meet in October on the 12th, where we will benefit from an IT update to get us secure, resilient and ready for the next year ahead – so if you want an It health check – join us!

Clarity7 creating strong managers for your business….

Clarity7 creating strong managers for your business….

An inadequate manager can unconsciously sabotage the effort of your team and your business – after all, people don’t leave a job, they leave a poor manager.  So how do you avoid this happening?   Easy – invest in the training to help your managers build and develop their skills to become truly exceptional leaders.

The most effective management training must be positive, beneficial and strategically important and should be considered an investment, not a cost.   It’s all about minimising risk in your business and enhancing, not diminishing, your reputation as an employer of choice in an increasingly competitive world. Every manager should, and needs to, acquire a set of core skills which allows for continuous improvement as their experience as a manager grows.    Our soon to be accredited, innovative programme of professional management development masterclasses is delivered by qualified, experienced experts in business and HR management, and will fast track the learning process.

Our masterclasses examines…

  •  Defining the role and skills of an effective manager
  •  Setting the HR strategy for successful people management
  •  Building high performance in your team
  •  Performance management
  •  Effective disciplinary and grievance management
  •  Successful recruiting techniques
  •  Developing a coaching style

Our next programme starts on 9th October one masterclass per month for 7 months will result in your new manager developing the skills and techniques needed to be a brilliant leader.

 

£1,365 + VAT  £1,160 + VAT for the whole course for Business Network Members

10/10, Very informative and engaging.  Personal and small workshop, so very reflective of my usual working environment.

The connections were aplenty – members that do their homework and are demanding of us to get them in front of the right people REALLY benefit from our active behind the scenes work.

Members come together for RHS Tatton

We are delighted to announce that we will be at RHS Tatton on July 19th and 20th as we are involved with 2 of the fabulous gardens – one of which being our very own Jane Bingham of The Cheshire Garden.

Jane and her lovely team asked us to be involved with their ‘Remember Me’ garden, raising awareness and funds for the Altzeimers and Dementia charities through the making and auctioning off of a beautiful hexagonal shaped bench for the garden that our lovely Dan has made. We hope it raises oodles of cash for this fantastic cause!

We are also involved with the Crohns and Colitis garden for which Simon has made an epically emotive piece – see pics. So, please come along and support RHS Tatton this year and all the fab charities involved.

Lego, outsourcing and Giving

Not 3 words you might expect to see as a headline ever – but when did we ever do anything people expect?

The Network that keeps on giving and learning – saw a fabulous seminar lead by our fabulous resident outsource experts – Maja from The Admin Office and Phil of Sollertia.

Then lots and lots of great connections to learn about – where people gave information, shared their contacts and knowledge and just simply got to know how they can help each other.

Finally – the lego! Abbey Gate college brought an amazing lego set – built to help launch their fundraising for a new all weather pitch.

So – want to find out what 3 things will be in the mix next month? Come along and join us Thursday 6th July at the newly refurbished Double Tree! 

Positive, proactive People deliver positive proactive results!

We welcomed almost 90 to our event this month – and the thing that sets them apart – their approach to people!

Kirsty Craig and the team shared their vast experience and knowledge in the art of securing and retaining talent through positive proactive people processes.

Then as usual – a blend of open and strategic networking – with each table perfectly planned to make new contacts, deepen relationships, and satisfy the members requests of who they want to meet.

For an added bonus – around 40 members then hot footed it to Chester races to mingle, network and enjoy this early summer sun!
