In these seminars, some of which are held jointly with the CIPD, you will learn directly from leading human resource managers, recruitment specialists and talent development consultants who cover key topics such as employee engagement, job market trends and best practice in leading, managing and developing people nationally and internationally. It's a great opportunity to learn, ask questions and build your professional network.
Our Strategy into Practice seminar series gives you the opportunity to understand strategy in enterprises of all scales. Top managers will give you first-hand accounts of managing complex organisations in the UK and internationally, promoting innovation and creativity, instituting cultural change and managing growth. Speakers to date have included Lord Hastings (KPMG, BT and UNICEF), Karen Hamilton (Unilever), and Greg Dyke (former Director General of the BBC).
In each session, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and network with academic staff and local business leaders. These seminars are also open to students, alumni, staff, the business community and the wider public.
We are committed to helping students, staff, alumni, and all kinds of organisations in the region develop their entrepreneurial potential and progress opportunities into viable projects and enterprises. One of the ways in which we do this is through our Enterprise Insights seminars, which bring in high-profile guest speakers to talk about, and discuss, their personal experiences.
