14th JUNE 2017 - Breakfast Seminar Event

“What’s the Point of You – And What’s Your Point of View”?

On 14th June this year Maynard Leigh will hold its annual breakfast seminar at the Fortune Theatre in London's West End.

This will be the third Maynard Leigh breakfast seminar in the 'Free the Talent' campaign. 

What’s the point of you? And what’s your point of view? We think these are two vital questions that all Leaders should be able to answer, these days particularly. We also have ideas to share around leadership that can be applied successfully to business.

So why are these questions important - and why now?  Maynard Leigh suggests that we are living in a Trust Recession. The majority of people’s trust in strategic institutions has deteriorated in a way not seen before, according to a revealing report by Edelman. It shows the reduction of trust, and points toward the general population’s suspicion that the overall system is not working for them. Unsurprisingly the Edelman Trust Barometer is also showing a severe lack of trust in the leadership of commercial organisations. 

Research shows that outstanding results in organisations are driven by leaders who inspire high-levels of trust from their people. They promote collaborative working, improve employee engagement and engender customer loyalty. And yet a recent survey showed that over 63% of employees don’t trust their leaders.

Our breakfast seminar, therefore explores how leaders add value and how their principles make an impact. We will offer you tools and tips to help ensure your employees feel Valued, Involved, Developed and Inspired.

Unlocking Potential

"It totally exceeded my expectations. Very hands-on with many techniques to help manage the process of presenting. Really like the way the course put the audience at the heart of the presentation."

Rochelle Jayawardena, Centaur Media

"The benefit and effect was tremendous. It was definitely worth every penny we invested, they are state of the art in what they do."

Brano Hosek, Senior Expert of Group Performance Development Deutsche Telekom

"So today I completed my first presentation, WOW! I couldn't believe how much I enjoyed it. My nerves were controlled, I used lots of pauses to great effect and most importantly for me; I handled Q&A with ease. I can’t thank you enough for the two days. I would very much describe it as 'one big life changing moment' that will make a huge professional difference but most importantly, will help me be the best person I can."

Simon Dennis, Manager Wickes
