April Breakfast – Managing Across Generations

Title: Managing across Generations
Location: Dutton Gregory, St Peter’s Street, Winchester. SO23 8BT
Time: from 8.30 am to 9.45 am
Date: Tuesday 16th April 2013
Guest speaker: Dr. Nigel Paterson
The relevance to People Management: each generation can have its own values and behaviours, and it takes skill to manage the best of all points of view without unnecessary conflict

Management of diversity has become a very important skill in the workplace. Part of this is the ability to manage across generations successfully enough that staff enjoy and even speak enthusiastically about the multi-generational environment in which they work. The same principles can be applied rather similarly to all-age voluntary organisations and even to extended families.

Nigel will give a brief overview of the generations commonly found in the workplace, including their customary likes and dislikes. This will lead to the exploration of a number of ideas for best practice.

Nigel Paterson is a trainer and educator who works part-time for Richard Lewis Communications in Warnford, giving training to overseas business people, academics, government officers and politicians in business and cross-cultural communication. He also works part-time for a thriving, all-age church in Hedge End.

February Breakfast – The Relationship between Business Partners

Title: February Breakfast – The Relationship between Business Partners
Location: Dutton Gregory Office, St Peter’s Street, Winchester. SO23 9NA
Start Time: 08:30
End Time: 09:45
Date: 19/02/2013
Description: “The Relationship between Business Partners – good Marriages and better Divorces” – led by Cathy Foster

People enter into business partnerships for a wide variety of of very good reasons, yet fewer than 20% of partnerships last five years. While this is an American statistic, this isn’t far off the British experience. Research shows:

It is the relationship between partners and not the business plan that leads to the success or failures of a partnership venture
It’s the interpersonal and emotional dynamics that can upset a partnership – written agreements are no protection

Cathy Foster of Business Duo Coaching will take you through best practice for partnership building and maintenance, as well as breaking-up. She’ll also give you top tips to take back to your business and help you explore how wrong you can be if you make assumptions about each other’s viewpoints.

If you’re not currently in a partnership, come anyway, as the lessons to be learnt are true for any work team.

Cathy is a relationship coach, working with her business partner Neil Wilkie. They work with any two people whose crucial relationships are critical for success. Their website is www.businessduocoaching.com.

November Breakfast – Bribery and Corruption

Title: October Breakfast – Bribery and Corruption
Location: Dutton Gregory Office, St Peter’s Street, Winchester. SO23 9NA
Start Time: 08:30
End Time: 09:45
Date: 20/11/2012
Description: “ Bribery and Corruption – is prevention better than cure? ” – led by James Richardson.

The new UK Bribery Act has now been in force for more than a year and time is running out for those organisations that have not yet established compliance measures. Although there have been no headline cases as yet, a great deal is happening behind the scenes, and prosecutions (or settlements) brought under the old laws continue to surface, to the considerable anguish of the businesses concerned, and their employees.

James Richardson works as an Anti-Bribery consultant. Drawing on his hands-on involvement in implementing an anti-bribery strategy within a large international company, he advises organisations about the impact of the new legislation. In this session, he will talk about the current anti-bribery climate and provide some pointers as to the steps you can take to prevent your business – and your people – from falling foul of the law.

The People Management Breakfast is open to anyone who wishes to come along and is held on the third Tuesday of every month. Our breakfast meetings are free throughout the year, supported by Dutton Gregory Solicitors, but we ask for £10 towards the Summer & Christmas breakfasts.

Future meetings include topics such as:
18/12/12 – Christmas Meeting at The Corner House, Winchester – £10. 8pm start (numbers limited so please let Sarah know asap)
15/01/12 – Preventing Travel Related Illness

Please let Sarah Broad know you are coming on 01962 844333 or at s.broad@duttongregory.co.uk.
