    Presenter - James Golding, World Record Breaking Cyclist

    Topic - One Step At A Time

    Synopsis:

    In June this year James Golding made history by setting a new world record for the most miles cycled in a week. In itself this is an incredible feat of endurance, but this is made even more so when you discover that under 10 years ago James was given less than a 5% chance of surviving cancer.

    Since then he has raised more than 3 million pounds for charity and is an inspiration to us all. He has ridden across the USA, Mexico, Spain and France, done John O'Groats to Land's End, London to Paris six times and has been an ambassador to the world's toughest and highest sportive, the Haute Route, which he has now completed eight times, more than any other Briton.

    At this month's seminar we have a unique opportunity to hear James tell his remarkable not-to-be-missed story.

    Presenter - Graham Campbell, Moose Media Management

    Topic - Taming The Social Media Cauldron:

    Finding a Recipe that Works For Your Business.

    All Hallows Eve will soon be upon us.

    When we think of Halloween we usually think of two things

    1.The supernatural and
    2.The ever increasing commercialisation of it.

    This juxtaposition is similar to how many feel about social media: there is commerciality there for our businesses, but it often seems frustratingly ethereal and out of our reach!

    Halloween therefore seems the perfect time of year to finally get to grips with social media and pin down its commercial importance to all our businesses.

    Graham will attempt to do just that for everyone that attends this seminar in little over an hour!


    In the caldron boil and bake;
    Eye of newt and toe of frog,
    Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
    Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
    Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
    For a charm of powerful trouble,
    Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
    Macbeth: IV.i 10-19; 35-38

    Is there a recipe for social media success in business? And if so is there a community of 'witches and wizards' out there that can conjure it - at the right price of course?

    Social media can often be a scary place for many businesses. It contains all manner of uncertainties and the unexplained - ghouls, goblins and most certainly trolls! Then there is the sense that there is somehow a supernatural way of confidently navigating its mysterious imposing landscape, like a latter-day Van Helsing traversing the Borgo Pass; if one only had the right 'map'.

    Like anything the more light that can be shed on a subject the less fear it holds. The trouble with social media is the wealth of accessible information âout-thereâ can ironically become claustrophobic, cloying and eventually paralysing. How does one know if what they are doing is right, how do we know if it will yield the results we want, rather than unleash all manner of untold trouble? How does one separate the truly insightful from the snakeskin salesman, charlatan clairvoyants and circus acts?

    Graham will take you on a journey from a dank crypt of uncertainty toward the cleansing light of social media insight. He promises more descriptive metaphor but more importantly clarity to take away and begin implementing before witching hour arrives.


    Graham Campbell is the CEO of Moose Media Management a multi award winning creative social media agency based in East Lancashire. Graham sees the world through a moose shaped lens and that can often prove insightful! He has appeared on stage at both the Comedy Store and Frog and Bucket and brings a sense of fun and the unexpected into his presentations, seminars and speaking engagements. He makes only one promise about this seminarâ you wonât be bored!

    Presenter - Aline Foster - Optimal Coaching

    Topic - Emotional Intelligence at Work

    This month's seminar is being presented by Aline Foster from Optimal Coaching.

    Aline says,"Emotional Intelligence is a key factor in personal and professional success. This seminar will explore the importance of EI in business today and how profiling can be used as a tool to enable improved EI capabilities for individuals and teams".

    "The importance of what is sometimes referred to as soft skills or people skills is often overlooked by business owners as they are seen as just that,âsoftâ".

    The first element of EI is self awareness. We all have blind spots, routine behaviours or actions that others see and we don't. Profiling can play a significant part in highlighting these blind spots as well as improving recruitment processes and team dynamics.

    Aline will share how EI practices can be learned, how they can improve your personal effectiveness improve your recruitment success, improve sales, and how in leadership, high EQ is twice as likely to predict your success than your Technical ability and IQ!

    Aline has over 25 years management experience which she gained during her time in the aviation industry. Aline managed several teams at Exeter airport and remotely managed teams at 14 airports around the country. Four years ago, having completed a degree in Leadership and Business Practice at Exeter university and qualifying as a corporate and executive coach, Aline was able to pursue her passion for developing others and helping them to reach their professional goals. Aline has since worked with many Senior executives and business owners across a number of diverse industries.

    Presenter - Matthew Holman - Principal at EMW

    Topic - Tidal Wave On The Horizon: The New General Data Protection Regulation

    This month's seminar is being presented by Matthew Holman, a Principal at EMW and the Head of EMW's technology and privacy law team.

    The world of data protection is about to change significantly and the new law (called the General Data Protection Regulation or "GDPR") will be coming into force from May 2018. All businesses, regardless of size, sector and turnover, will need to comply with this new law. The penalties for failure to comply with the GDPR are significantly higher than ever before. The maximum fine is 20m Euros or 4% of worldwide turnover, whichever is the higher. The new law introduces brand new concepts which are:

    - The need to report data security breaches within 72 hours;
    - Appoint a data protection officer;
    - Update consent wording and cease using opt-outs (where the business relies on these);
    - Keep internal records which relate to the processing of personal data;
    - The duty to erase personal data when asked to do so (aka the right to be forgotten);
    - Have specific contract terms in place with service providers where they deal with your companyâs personal data;
    - Respond to subject access requests within a new shorter time frame.

    Matthew acts for many UK PLC's and global brands as well as national and regional technology businesses. He is one of only 20 lawyers in the UK to have gained SCL Accredited IT Lawyer status. He is recognised as one of the UK's leading GDPR specialists. He is an experienced public speaker and his seminars are highly sought after. He is frequently involved in high profile media work for the GDPR and has provided opinions and views for many industry media outlets as well as mainstream media, including BBC News and The Times.

    You will come away from Matthew' s presentation having gained a greater understanding as to the key changes in the GDPR; you will be equipped to plan for your business' internal compliance before the May 2018 deadline and you will have experienced a light hearted and engaging presentation, with the chance for you to ask lots of questions of a leading expert in the field.

    Presenter - Sam Dods From Koru

    Topic - Leadership In Complex Times

    Content:

    In today's complex and rapidly changing world the skills needed to lead are evolving. Traditional hierarchical structures and the associated leadership styles served organisations well for many years when the working environment was more static. But these same approaches are now generating a number of issues including increased staff disengagement and reduced creativity. As a result, there has been an increasing trend toward "flattening" organisational structures with greater emphasis on trust rather than control. The skills needed to lead effectively in these environments will be considered in this interactive seminar.

    About The Presenter:

    Sam is a management consultant with over 20 years' experience in starting, growing, selling and integrating companies ranging from a small start-up to a Euronext Amsterdam listed, 2 Billion+ euros multinational. Former Technical Director, Managing Director and Head of Organisational Development, Sam is a qualified mining engineer who has lived in 8 countries on 4 continents and developed an awareness of the importance of psychodynamics in the work place.

    The Golden Rule in Key Account Management is simple: Look after your most important customers before someone else does.

    In a world where simply STANDING UP to your competition is not enough, we must develop ways to STAND OUT from them and build PROFITABLE PARTNERSHIPS with our customers, suppliers and staff.

    Presenter - Monika Bhaduri - The Consumer Company

    Topic - How well do you know your customers? Keep them loyal and attract new ones

    Don't need Market Research? Think again. To be successful any company must listen to its customers. In her seminar Monika will demonstrate how research can transform your business through consumer insights that help you to engage with, attract and retain existing as well as new customers. She will use case studies to show how research can save you money and avoid costly mistakes. The focus of the seminar will be on a research technique that addresses the âWHYâ of consumer behaviour rather than the facts and figures provided by data.

    Presenter - Martin Jones From Red Design

    Topic - SEO, The Dark Arts & Rocket Science...

    Synopsis:

    How to get clarity, results and value for money from online marketing. For many, SEO has rightly become a four letter word. Opaque language, misleading reports and lack of targets make it impossible to know what you're paying for, or hope to achieve. SEO is just a processes, a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end. The processes of good SEO are more akin to servicing a car than rocket science or alchemy. So don't let anyone convince you otherwise!

    Content:

    1.What is SEO?
    2.How can SEO benefit your business?
    3.Myths of the self-proclaimed 'Gurus' and 'Ninjas'
    4.Setting a brief and asking the right questions.
    5.Getting control, accountability and clarity.

Martin's areas of expertise have been led by the needs of his closest, long-term clients. With the blossoming of online marketing, Martin has come to realise the one thing his clients want above all else, is someone they can trust.
