    Time - 1030 - 1145

    Presenter - Harrison Drury

    Topic - A Mental Health and Wellbeing Toolkit

    This seminar will provide a practical guide to help attendees to manage mental health in the workplace. It aims to assist an employer in determining what they can, can?t, should and shouldn?t be doing in different types of circumstances involving sensitive, challenging and varied mental health issues with employees.

    Managing mental health in the workplace can often be difficult and intimidating. In particular, there tend to be two kinds of situations that employers have to deal with:

    1) Known conditions
    2) Conditions which are not known to the employer or which take them by surprise

    In this seminar, we will look at the approaches available to employers when an employee makes a condition known to them.

    We will also look at how an employer should deal with conditions that are not made known / pro-actively declared / formally diagnosed as these can be particularly difficult to deal with if, perhaps, an employee?s behaviour changes.

    The next section of the seminar will cover preventative measures that an employer can look at ? one primary example of this is flexible working.

    Presenter - Anne Williamson, Customer Love

    Topic - How the Principles of Dating Can Help You Grow Your Business

    Are you putting people off doing business with you, without even realising it? You may even be losing future sales because you have treated your customer like a one night stand. It is so easy to fall into the trap of looking for new business all the time, whilst ignoring the customers you already have.

    Being in business has so much in common with dating ? it is all about the building quality relationships with our customers. In this fun and interactive seminar you will be taken through several of the stages of dating and discover how they apply to business. Each stage will be backed up with real life business examples - not dating examples that?s a totally different seminar;) Packed full of hints and tips for you to start wooing your customers (in a business sense).

    I?ve spent over 25 years in marketing, constantly building relationships with customers (online and offline) and have always been driven by delivering the best customer service possible. My book ?Are you a one night stand business?? delves deeper into where businesses can be losing sales through the way they treat potential and existing customers. My 25+ years marketing experience is backed by my Professional Diploma in Marketing but delivered with a cheeky G & T twist.

    Presenter - Robert Clarke and Paul Whitfield

    Topic - Buying Customers - The Truth About Online Advertising



    Buying Customers - The Truth About Online Advertising That Some Digital Agencies Do Not Want You To Know About


    You would be forgiven for thinking that the ?top of page? ads are reserved for the highest paying customers. The truth is that the amount you are bidding is only one of five factors that determines your ad position.


    We will show you how to create high quality ads with super relevant content that will improve sales AND reduce costs.


    We?ll also explain how associated benefits (i.e. brand awareness and increased traffic) may or may not have the desired effect when it comes to delivering a return on your investment.


    SPOILER ALERT! ? We will demonstrate how our growth model proves that you don?t need a big budget to compete with the big boys! Something that those companies that want you to spend more don?t want you to hear.


    Robert Clarke ? Co-director of BrightRED, Robert oversees digital marketing activities for businesses in many different sectors. His experience in online advertising ranges from campaigns for FTSE 100 companies to sole traders.


    Paul Whitfield ? Following 15 years working in the corporate world, Paul now operates a portfolio of businesses in the North West. His frustration when engaging online agencies led Paul to invest in his own agency. This experience of online advertising as a customers and also as co-director of BrightRED provides a unique insight from both sides of the table.


    Both Robert and Paul are passionate about using their combined experience and knowledge to help SMEs to develop and grow.

      Topic - Social Media in the Workplace

      Social media has been around for 15 years but there is still no legislation dictating what activities are lawful. It is something that would be welcomed both in terms of employment law and general problems with trolling. For now, solicitors and HR consultants are having to rely on the evolving number of cases in the Employment Tribunal to advise our clients.


      This presentation will take you through some of the many social media "fails" on the part of employees with some amusing examples of real-life cases. We will help you understand why cases were decided in a certain way and give you practical advice on how to avoid employees damaging your business' reputation via their own social media accounts.

      Presenter - Gary Payne - The Gill Payne Partnership

      Topic - GDPR Seminar and Update

      Gary Payne will be updating on the impact of the EU GDPR and the UK Data Protection Law as well as responding to questions from delegates on data protection compliance. He will update on the upcoming ePrivacy Regulation, the updating of Cookie Law and electronic communications ? useful for marketeers.


      As ever, this will not be a dull session, he doesn?t do dull, but informative with examples and he will be providing information about some of the penalties imposed under the new legal framework to make sure that delegates do get themselves on the wrong side of the law, and some of the more obscure matters most businesses have not planned for under data protection law, which could just happen.


      If delegates wish to know about how to handle a specific scenario to their organisation, a question about this should be sent to Gary prior to the seminar and he will ensure that the information given, answers that specific case.

      Presenter - Cody Gapare

      Topic - The Accidental Entrepreneur: Lessons from the Canvas

      As an accidental entrepreneur, it is fair to say Cody made more mistakes than most because she never set out to run a business nor did she have any business or beauty background. Cody spent more time on the canvas than on her feet as she says she made every mistake in the book, but those failures taught her more than any victory ever could.


      Codilia Gapare, an entrepreneurial breast cancer survivor, has revolutionised the beauty industry by creating the first ever false lashes range for chemotherapy patients. The mother-of-two had always dreamed of becoming a lawyer and started studying when she came to the UK from Zimbabwe. Hours before her interview for University, Codilia was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 36, and it was through this intensely difficult time in her life that she realised that there were no fake eyelash options for cancer patients. Codilia transformed her idea into an actual product, 'C Lashes', and partnered with beauty brand Eylure. The company have since released the range in Boots stores, making the cosmetic industry more accessible for women with cancer. C-Lash was voted one of the 50 Prima High Street Heroes 2019 and is currently one of the best-selling new entry products in Boots.
