On 2nd May we will be launching an exciting new series of events in collaboration with three members of the Chamber: International House, Avocets Consulting and Hill Networks, which will bring together business representatives to discuss best practices in leadership.
‘Leadership in Focus Forum‘ is aimed to create an open discussion and to debate skills that professionals should foster in their teams and companies and to encourage and share best practices for today’s leaders.
They will run over 6 months, and the launch event is going to be held at the International House Premises , next 2nd May, so save the date in your calendar. The evening will kick off with some ice-breaker activities, giving the participants the opportunity to get to know each other in a fun and informal way. This will be followed by an introduction to the members who will be hosting the sessions, so they can share a little information about themselves and what they do. Finally, the attendees will have the opportunity to network before the evening reaches its conclusion.
This series will also explore, among some others, topics such as: the importance of leaders understanding an international audience, managing multinational teams and incorporating key soft-skills into their leadership style. Each session will be chaired by the Chamber’s Secretary General and one of the collaborating members which include:
An established and well-known language school and cross-cultural training centre that provides a wide range of courses from Executive business English courses to bespoke training programmes in 20 languages, delivered by native speaker trainers. Based in a spacious and fully-equipped school building in Covent Garden, they are a founder member and flagship school in the International House World Organisation.
A management training and consulting firm specialising in training business professionals to communicate internationally. They offer training in presenting and pitching to international clients, international leadership skills and international team building.
A cross- cultural training company who offers courses on leadership and working in an intercultural team, in addition to executive coaching. They also established the New Leader’s CLUB, a mentoring group for new and experienced managers and leaders who wish to enhance their leadership soft skills.
The first two sessions within the Leadership in Focus Forum will take place on May 21st and June 20th at the Spanish Chamber premises and they will focus on international team building and presenting with impact respectively. Further information about the sessions and how to book your place will be posted soon in the UPCOMING EVENTS section on our website, newsletter, LinkedIn group and this blog .
