Inspire Breakfasts return with two more fantastic events

Earlier this month we held our first Inspire Breakfast with Cecile George from McKinsey & Company. The event was a huge success and we raised £250 towards the Marketing Academy Merlin’s Apprenticeship Programme – a scheme run in partnership with The Prince’s Trust for 18-24 year olds who are not currently in employment, education or training.

Inspire Breakfasts are informal small learning groups focused on leadership capabilities. Our inaugural event sold out in just six hours, so this time we are launching our next two Inspire Breakfasts at the same time so you have more chance of joining us. Tickets for Inspire Breakfasts are only £25 and every penny goes towards Merlin’s Apprentice £1million Fund.  Make sure you book your tickets now!

HOW TO BE A GREAT COACH with Emily Jacob
13th August, 8:15-10:00am
During the session Emily, accredited professional coach and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner, will explore some of the key capabilities of a coach and share some of the practices you can use with your teams. It will be an interactive session with just 18 attendees –  you will have the opportunity to both coach and be coached with peer feedback.

TIME TO THINK with Jane Adshead-Grant
2nd October, 8:15-10:00am
Time to Think has identified 10 behaviours that generate the best thinking resulting in people thinking for themselves with rigour, imagination, courage and grace. Jane, a Time to Think Accredited Coach, will share how you can develop these behaviours to improve the quality of your thinking.

We hope to see you at one of the breakfasts.
