Russam GMS Hosts 5th Annual Summer Conference – & lsquo;Going for Gold’
Leading speakers from the British Chamber of Commerce, Institute of Consulting, CIPD, amongst others
Interim Managers who want to learn how to stay at the top of their game and win new business in today’s competitive interim market should attend the & lsquo;Going for Gold’ summer conference, hosted by Russam GMS (www.russam-gms.co.uk), one of the UK’s leading providers of interim managers.
This one day conference is a must attend event for interim managers in today’s tough economic climate. They will get a rare chance to listen to inspirational figures from the world of business and sports and learn valuable skills on how to gain a competitive edge. The conference will explore the themes of high performance, mental toughness and how interims and businesses can create a sustainable competitive advantage.
Dominic Mahony, director at Lane4 and Olympic Team Manager for the GB Modern Pentathlon Team opens the day with a presentation, entitled & lsquo;Are we winners or are we losers? What’s the difference? and he will discuss strategies for improving performance. When 0.01 seconds can be the difference between Gold and Silver in the Olympics, so improving business performance to give a marginal edge can be the difference between winning or not winning new business.
Charles Russam, Chairman of Russam GMS comments: “Sports can be a powerful metaphor for business and is especially topical with the Olympics just weeks away. Marginal performance improvements in today’s competitive interim market can make all the difference to not only winning business and also for businesses working themselves out this recession.
“Interims managers have to be on the look-out for new opportunities and ways to re-invent themselves constantly – particularly in a recession. At the conference, they will get the answers on how to do this from leading experts and have the chance to network with other professionals in their field,”
The conference includes the following presentations:
• The economic outlook and what it means for people at work- John Philpott, Chief Economic Advisor to the CIPD
• What is going to be happening in UK Business? - Martyn Pellew, President of the British Chambers of Commerce
• Going Global – Winning Overseas Assignments including Presentation by UKTI – Charles Russam and Jason Atkinson
There are four breakout sessions in the afternoon called & lsquo;Crossing the winning line’ which focus on different industries sectors, including banking, not-for-profit and the public sector, plus a practical session on social media and the importance of CVs.
The final session of the day is our Interim Women session & lsquo;Does sex really matter’ with guest speaker Pauline Crawford, founder of Corporate Heart www.corporate-heart.co.uk/ and a leading expert in helping women get to the top in business. This light hearted session will look at gender dynamics and the 5% difference they make in business.
Delegates are invited to an evening drinks reception hosted by Interim Women for a chance to relax and network.
