Preparation: Social Media Excellence Workshop

Reading time: < 1 minute...

With just a week to go, I’m working with Denise M from The Career Practice putting the finishing touches to our one-day coaching event next week in London. This particular workshop is aimed at business professionals who wish to use social media ‘to the max’ when seeking employment and includes detailed sessions covering Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.  

London calling!

What a busy week! Six-days too. Today, I’m off to London for one of our regularish LNG meetings. Luckily, Denise has managed to find us a semi-permanent home in Holborn (at least for this year), so that’ll help preserve the LNG funds. Nice one Denise!!!

Today, we’re recapping assertiveness techniques courtesy of Angela.

Learning Network Group Meeting

Reading time: < 1 minute...

We all met at the excellent Royal Festival Hall today for our final meeting of 2009. Rick took us through his experiences of measuring leadership performance through the use of a comprehensive questionnaire – the whole thing was fascinating and useful in equal measures.

The small turnout of Lydia, Antoinette, Sharon, Angela and Jan, plus Rick and me was more than made up for by the interest shown by us all. The venue was good too as we were able to tuck ourselves away upstairs in one of the public areas – perfect! 

We finished around lunchtime and decided to eat at the nearby Pizza Express. Coincidentally, we ended up being seated in exactly the same spot as the time when Ann and I went there, back in September, 2007 – what an coincidence! As last time, the service and food was excellent.

After lunch, we went our separate ways and Rick dropped me off at St Pancras. I missed the 3 o’clock by a whisper, and settled for the 3.30. It’s been a great day and good to catch-up with many of my closest training colleagues and friends.

Home by 4.45 – feet-up and do b*****-all for the rest of the evening!

Back to reality with a bump this morning! Ann is in London all week on a five-day intensive Prince 2 Course.

…and just to make things even more exciting, there were no trains out of Kettering due to a fire, so Val and Ann drove over to Huntingdon and got a train from there.
