    Presenter - Paul Skinner

    Topic - Collaborative Advantage

    Paul Skinner will share insights from his forthcoming book Collaborative Advantage: How collaboration beats competition as a strategy for success and offers Collaborative Advantage as a new model for business success.

    This interactive session will explore how creating Collaborative Advantage can help to rapidly accelerate the growth of your business or non-profit organisation by bringing the fuller, value-creating potential of the outside world inside the organisation.

    Paul draws on personal experience as an award-winning social entrepreneur and shares success stories of creating Collaborative Advantage and practical tools from his book.

    Have we reached a turning point in history from which the traditional goal of business strategy, creating Competitive Advantage, may actually be holding your business back

    Competitive Advantage is the most cited idea in the history of business and shapes many of our thoughts even when we don't realise it. But many of the assumptions embedded in the idea of Competitive Advantage can be seen as unhelpful or wrong.

    Such assumptions include:
    - Most value is created inside the business
    - The way to succeed is primarily by being better than the people around you
    - Apart from making their all-important choice to consume, customers are really passive recipients of the benefits you magnanimously choose to create for them

    Instead Paul argues that:
    - Most value is created in the interactions between us
    - Bringing the fuller value-creating potential of the outside world inside the business is the key determinant of success
    - Customers are the best people to enjoy and improve their own lives and that business should be there primarily to help them help themselves

    By developing your organisational strategy around the alternative concept of Collaborative Advantage, creating benefits with customers and the outside world rather than just for them, you can open the doors to greater benefits for customers, more value for the business and better outcomes for society.

    In the book Paul develops a holistic approach to building Collaborative Advantage that can be applied to any business or organisation. In this session he will share an overview of this approach including practical tools from the book including the Outside In framework.

    Paul is the founder of the Agency of the Future, which helps clients create Collaborative Advantage to drive a greater level of organisational success that is better for the business, better for its customers and better for society.

    He is also the founder of Pimp My Cause, which uses cause-related marketing challenges to enhance the capabilities of individuals and teams and supports over two thousand charities and social enterprises with access to pro-bono marketing in the process. Pimp My Cause partners with the UK's top marketing and advertising professional organisations including The Marketing Society, Institute of Practitioners in Advertising and the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

    In 2014 he was awarded an honorary visiting fellowship at Edge Hill University business school, has twice won Consultant of the Year awards from the Chartered Institute of Marketing and is an advisory board member at London' s Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising.

    Presenter - Laura Lewis of Chameleon HR + Cheryl Luzet of Wagada

    Topic - Grow your Business by Creating a Culture That People & Clients Love

    Our modern business world is an environment where competition for business is fierce. Then throw the current War on Talent (which is set to worsen post-Brexit) into the mix and the heat is really on for business owners. The importance of a strong company culture is something that's often overlooked by growing businesses trying to find the key to making sure that they stand out from the competition and attract the best people and clients.

    During our seminar, we'll look further at the importance of company culture and how you can use it to grow your brand and stand out from the crowd. Cheryl Luzet, will bring this to life by sharing real examples of how she's successfully done this within her business - digital marketing agency Wagada - and the benefits that she's seen as a result.

    ABOUT THE PRESENTERS
    Laura Lewis - Chameleon HR
    After 12 years in corporate HR, fuelled by the need for a new challenge and the desire not to let time with her young family pass her by, Laura Lewis jumped off the corporate cliff nearly 3 years ago to set up Chameleon HR.

    Chameleon HR was founded as a generalist HR consultancy. However, after experiencing the eye-rolling that goes hand-in-hand with saying that you work in HR for the umpteenth time, Laura decided that a more relevant approach to HR was what was needed. So Chameleon HR,'HR Thatâs Moved with The Times' was born under the idea that the command and control typical of traditional HR often holds businesses back from achieving their true potential.

    Laura believes that the key to business success is offering a great employee experience - happy employee equals happy customer after all. And so, the focus of Chameleon HR is on coming up with bespoke, modern, innovative and collaborative solutions to attract and retain the best people for each business.

    Cheryl Luzet - Wagada
    Cheryl set up the digital marketing agency Wagada 6 years ago and in that time it has gone from one-man home-based business to a thriving agency with 10 permanent in-house staff and 15 freelancers. Growing the business at this speed has presented challenges around recruitment and retention of staff. Having skilled and experienced staff is key to the success of Wagada, and Cheryl invests heavily in training her team in the UK and abroad. Skilled SEO staff are much in demand - and Cheryl realised early on that this would mean that Wagada needed to offer something extra to make working there attractive on an ongoing basis. Cheryl works closely with Laura at Chameleon HR to create a strong company culture that attracts and rewards staff. Clients enjoy working with passionate and engaged staff, and the team at Wagada benefit from a positive working environment that promotes strong work/life balance.

    Presenter - Louise Mosley from NB Coaching

    Topic - Sales Process! What Sales Process?!

    Synopsis:

    In this interactive session we will explore where you add the most value to your sales process and which areas would be better if automated or outsourced. If you're not sure if you even have a process, no problem, come along and we'll work on that too!

    Content:

    You went into business because you had a passion and skill for what you do but as we all know there are 101 other tasks that need to be done and one very important one is sales.

    We all have a unique mix of skills & talents. For some, the sales conversation can be a daunting task, for others it's the account management or follow up. Whatever your strengths it's how you apply them that matters and that's what we will be exploring in the session.

    About The Presenter:

    With over 13 years' experience in sales and marketing for a major pharmaceutical company, 5 years working overseas in the hospitality industry & 5 years working with small businesses. I have had the opportunity to manage, develop & coach many people from a diverse range of industries, countries and cultures. When I say I can look at things from many different perspectives, I really can!

    Why NB Coaching? NB stands for Neutral Buoyancy- divers aim to be neutrally buoyant when diving, a state of balance where you are floating in mid water, neither bobbing to the surface or sinking down, it should be the most relaxed state, using the least energy and air and one in which to enjoy the dive to its full. The principles and essence of neutral buoyancy are now at the heart of my coaching practice too, NB Coaching aims to support individuals to find this balance throughout their lives and business.
