Excellence in How We Work

Date: Monday 13 May 2024
Venue: Virtual
Start: 16:45 
End: 18:00
CPD: 1.5 hours

Our South East of England branch held a virtual CPD event on Monday 13 May 2024.

How can a training session entitled "Excellence in how we work" possibly make sense? Surely, we all do different jobs, in different types of organisations in different industries at different stages of our careers - so "excellence" is different for all of us?

Yes and no.

Of course, at one level we should be excellent in WHAT we do in our jobs - and this will indeed be very personal.

However, we can be excellent too in HOW we work - and this is not job or career-level dependent. And this is more often than not the dominant factor in how others view us in the workplace.

In this session, Nick Salmon was speaking through some training that he has been delivering and refining over 15 - 20 years based on observations from his career. This is totally practical training - ten slides of top tips broken down into broad themes, that we can all embrace in our daily working lives. No abstract "management-speak". Just lots of practical tips, illustrated by stories from real situations. He defies anyone not to walk away with something that they might do differently. Indeed, he says he particularly likes running this training as it's always a timely reminder personally to think about these issues.

The Event was provided for free and attendees earned 1.5 CPD points.
