So you want to have the conversation!
That was one of the strongest bits of feedback we received at our most recent free Share + Learn + Inspire event in Birmingham in October.
And that’s why we’re going to take a look at different types of conversation as we try an afternoon slot with our generous sponsors at Hays on Thursday 30 January.
Difficult and direct – when engaging with colleagues on a difficult topic or having the conversation with a team, how can we start the flow? Hear local insight on those little tips to get those group conversations flow from local expert Sharon Rowe from Golden Training and local NHS engagement lead John Travers.
Digital – if your teams are spread geographically, work different shifts or are just prefer social media how can you harness digital communications for team engagement?
Innovative Conversations – Hear from Idea Drop CEO Owen Hunnam on how social-media style engagement platform Idea Drop is being used in Birmingham to drive innovation in healthcare. Owen is the co-founder and CEO of Idea Drop, an idea management software designed to help businesses capture and action the best ideas from their people.
Digital team work – if your colleagues are spread geographically or just prefer digital conversations how can you harness these channels to improve engagement and bring them together?
