The Manager's Virtual Conference
Sustainable Leadership in a Changing World
TBC Virtual £330

In this session, we move away from applying rigid rules according to which generation team members belong to and embrace the power of diverse individuals. Ian will first show you how to identify differences so you can flex your style accordingly.
The session will cover:
Resilience - Moving into the 'new normal'
with Gail Rowntree
This workshop will explore how an understanding of resilience can assist us all during periods of extreme change. The session will look at what resilience is and how organisations can underpin the development of vital skills to support increases in workload, changes in the work environment and coping with transitioning to the 'new normal'.
It will also evaluate what individuals can do to support themselves and also what managers can do to create a supportive environment for fostering wellbeing.
The session will cover:
Jo spent her early career in retail management, where at just 25 years old she ran a £2.5m+ restaurant, leading a team of over 100 people. It was here she realised her passion for human psychology, nurturing and developing talent as well as the power of effective leadership. She later moved on to focus on employee engagement, wellbeing and culture change, affecting the forward-thinking strategy of 120,000 strong workforce.
Having spent the last 20 years of her career working with fast-paced, customer centric, large and often complex organisations, Jo went on to co-found PeopleUnboxed, a dynamic and disruptive people solutions consultancy. Here Jo is inspired to use her breadth of expertise, coupled with sound operational and business acumen, to empower organisations to unbox their people potential.
Ian has worked in L&D for over 25 years. His energetic delivery style will bring stories to life that make learning enjoyable and memorable.
Linking his experience to practical application will make sure you leave the session with a smile and a better way of working.
Highly energetic, entertaining and informative – one thing’s for sure – you’ll never forget one of Ian’s sessions!
“I love seeing the look on people’s face as I give them a tip or piece of advice that they can relate to and use in their job. I want every piece of work I do to make a real difference and give people a springboard to develop in their role. I’ll always aim to make my learning interventions energetic, fun, engaging and easy to use.”
Gail is a qualified Organisational Psychologist who helps organisations with mental health and other related issues.
She has experience of dealing with crisis in organisations by deploying for a mass disaster organisation to approx. 15 worldwide incidents, working in-the-field to support families but also the teams undertaking search and recovery. Gail also supported team employees in affected organisations to help with their recovery and post-traumatic growth.
"Teaching and supervising at various educational organisations rounded off my ‘education’ in writing and researching for the latest ideas in organisational psychology and psychiatry. I have published several articles and book chapters on a variety of related topics such as: resilience in deployment, supporting staff through trauma, workplace stress and I was once invited to contribute to the national curriculum for all new Paramedics in the UK."
