FRIDAY 28TH SEPTEMBER: 8AM, THE PAVILION, DEAN CLOSE SCHOOL

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION: MORE THAN JUST A GAME

 

With Past Parent, Laura Haycock. Client Engagement Manager, Pearn Kandola – Business Psychology and Occupational Psychologists.

Most organisations and managers believe in the value of attracting, developing and retaining a more diverse workforce to boost creativity, widen the talent pool and offer fair and equal opportunity to all. Most managers will also consider themselves able to treat others with objectivity and be “blind” to differences such as race or gender. However, without a better understanding of our unconscious biases and how these can unwittingly impact our behaviours and decisions, the reality is that most of us fall short of achieving our aim of being more inclusive. Like a game of snakes and ladders, the careers of some will be smoothed and facilitated, whilst others experience repeated barriers and discouragement. In this seminar Laura offers an introduction to this fascinating and important topic.


FRIDAY 23RD NOVEMBER: 8AM, THE PAVILION, DEAN CLOSE SCHOOL

with Aurea Fellows and Christine O’Shea of Piccadilly Beck.

“It was (as ever) with some dread that I arrived at the end of the day to be sociable with a room a high flying business people and (as ever) it was a huge pleasure to meet those people that I did and I came away (as ever) feeling so glad I came…”

Peter Holmes, Potter & Holmes Architects

“I can confirm that I have gained three new clients as a direct result of the Business Breakfast Club. I have attended various networking events and the Dean Close one has been by far the most productive one!”

Mike Gibson, MG Executive Travel

“The Business Club has given me access not only to potential customers, but also to experienced and enthusiastic business men and women; all there to help and share their knowledge and experience. I have not only gained new business, but also advisors and friends. My advice to you is to come along to the meetings and see what The Dean Close Business Club can do for you.”
