Working Lunch

12:30 - 13:30 Remote Event

Our Working Lunch networking series, brings together local business owners and leaders for a facilitated discussion with like-minded business people, about the issues high on the business agenda.

Our theme this month is: How to adapt and grow in the new business world.

If the last 12 months has taught us anything is is that the ability to adapt quickly to a changing business environment is critical to continued business success. Firms that have been able to do this well have thrived in the last 12 months, so what can we learn from them and what support is available to help?

The event is open to businesses of sizes and from all sectors. Delegates will be split into breakout groups alongside businesses sharing similar experiences to facilitate a useful and active peer to peer discussion. 

Please come armed with questions, useful tips to share from your experiences and some lunch!

Confident Communications
Members: £65.00 + VAT
Non-members: £99.00 + VAT
09:30 - 13:00 St Helens Chamber

You only learn when you listen.

We make hundreds of decisions each day from messages and signals we receive. To decipher all these without prejudice and ambiguity requires skills and a real self-awareness.

We communicate to family, friends, colleagues and customers in 3 ways:
• Verbal
• Non-Verbal
• Visual.

To communicate effectively you really need to understand you. We can so easily be influenced by gossip, moods or misunderstandings. We can also see and hear what we want to. To navigate through this jumble of vagueness we need to develop skills to help interpret the world around us and allow us to communicate clearly and without bias.

This Confident Communication course will introduce new skills that will allow you to confidently:
• Read people and situations effectively
• Know what shouts loudest about you
• Send emails that are clear, unambiguous and professional
• Communicate across the generations
• Ensure your Verbal & Non-Verbal language is in sync

And ensure that you never:
• Send another email that you regret
• Make rapid judgement calls
• Let your non-verbal’s run riot.
