Morning masterclass

Revolutionise Your Bottom Line!

With Andy Hanselman

A practical session that takes your people through proven processes into improving profitability. No spreadsheets or financial trickery, but real examples of how 3D Businesses do it – it’s about pricing, it’s about efficiencies, it’s about maximising opportunities, and getting everyone in the business profit focused. The result is a practical ‘Route to Profitability’ plan that people can go away and make work!

The workshop will be in the typical Andy Hanselman Consulting style:

Participative, Practical, Business Focused, Action orientated, and … Fun 

This is what Andy says about himself:

No, I haven’t been up Everest, sailed round the world or won a gold medal (and hey, hats off to those who have!) but I do have over 25 years’ experience researching, working with and learning from these winning 3D Businesses….. and that’s what I share.

Clients tell us they like my real insights into how winning businesses get ahead, and stay ahead of their competitors – and the fact that I share practical stuff people can actually use.

Yes, it fires people up – but it does more than that! I give you the tools and techniques to actually do stuff!

 “We have worked with Andy for many years as a presenter and a fantastic host for our conferences, workshops and away days. Our members love to hear his engaging and practical presentations – His bubbly personality and energy is infectious and this makes his sessions both enjoyable and unique!”

30th January 2019 – Yorkshire Leadership Group

Rudding Park, Wednesday 30 January 2019

Morning masterclass

HUMANISING HR Does your approach to HR give your business what it really needs?

As businesses grow, they need to change their approach to managing people. Quite often the impetus for change is a negative employee experience that leads to deployment of traditional HR methodologies, geared towards ‘prevention’ and ‘operational efficiency’. Instead of policing our people, we need approaches that drive the right human behaviours. We need to become ‘people experts’ in order to survive and protect the business culture that makes our business unique.

How much of a people expert are you? How can knowledge on the drivers of human behaviour lead to better people practices that give your business what it really needs? What changes can your business make right now?

This is a practical master-class based on a combination of academic research and real examples, through the eyes of an HR Director working within organisations from SME’s through to large Corporates. The presentation challenges some of the traditional approaches to HR and makes the case for a more ‘Human’ HR approach.

Delegates will leave the session with a wide range of practical solutions that they can apply easily to ‘humanise’ their approach to Human Resources on areas such as recruitment and induction, reward and recognition, policies and procedures and performance management.

Masterclass details:

What the sex pistols can teach you about marketing!

What can an English punk rock band formed in London in 1975 teach us about the world of marketing today?

Digital Marketing appears to be evolving so quickly, it sometimes seems a struggle to keep up. Yet, the more digital develops, the easier it is to understand the mindset that is necessary to make marketing effective in the current environment.

Much of this thinking can be understood by identifying some of the factors in the meteoric rise of The Sex Pistols. Although they lasted just two-and-a-half years and produced only four singles and one studio album, they were one of the most influential acts in the history of popular music

In this presentation, Grant Leboff explains the strategic thinking and fundamentals to ensure your marketing works. In so doing, he will look at some of the new trends and developments in marketing today and uncover how they can be utilised productively.

He will explore:

  • The KSJO radio interview – How companies differentiate
  • The Today Programme – Establishing an effective marketing department
  • Anarchy In The UK – The key to engaging prospects and customers
  • Punk Politics – Creating effective digital communications
  • The Bromley Contingent – Earning mindshare in today’s business environment
  • Early Seventies Britain – Why an ethos matters
  • The First NME Interview – Being able to articulate your value proposition succinctly
  • The December 1976 Tour – Persuading prospects to buy
  • Malcolm McLaren – Leveraging existing communities The Week There Was No Number One – Context and its importance in messaging

The speaker

Grant Leboff is one of the UK’s leading Sales and Marketing experts and a YLG favourite.

His fourth book, ‘Digital Selling’, debuted at #1 on the Amazon charts prior to being published in September last year. ‘Stickier Marketing’ (2014) went straight to #1 in the Amazon Sales & Marketing Chart, and was in the top 10 overall Business Chart, on publication. ‘Sales Therapy’ (2007) and ‘Sticky Marketing’ (2011) were both in Amazon’s top 10 Business Books, and #1 in the Sales & Marketing bestsellers chart.

A thought leader in his field, Grant’s main focus is to address the massive changes that are taking place in a world that is constantly being introduced to new technologies. He continually challenges Sales & Marketing conventions that become accepted wisdom, but don’t necessarily deliver results.

Having built a successful direct marketing company, which he started in 2002, Leboff sold it in 2008. As well as undertaking work as a Non Executive Director, he now has a number of other business interests. Sticky Marketing Club® Ltd., is a sales and marketing consultancy providing companies with the strategies to thrive in an increasingly competitive world – www.stickymarketing.com  produces a wealth of resources and information on effective Sales and Marketing for organisations in an ever-changing business environment.

Leadership Straight From The Horses’ Mouth!

 With Julia Felton

Business is changing rapidly and we all know that the old styles of leadership will no longer get you where you want to go. But how do you learn these new behaviours to help you lead in the fast-paced, ever-changing world that is the 21st century?

What if a horse could show you a new paradigm? A way of acting and being that will serve you more effectively in the future. After all horses have existed for millions of years and have learnt how to

adapt and become agile to survive in their surroundings. Some might say they have learnt to lead-on-the-hoof.

The challenges the herd face daily mirror some of the challenges that business is facing today. They teach us how to stay grounded and present in times of chaos, and how to summon moment to moment calm, strength, focus, respect, and trust to maintain a mutually safe and beneficial working relationship. They offer immediate feedback about our presence, emotional intelligence, and body language. They model for us how to work as a real team, one where the leadership is shared, where communication is authentic and where the vision is crystal clear. How would you like these traits in your business?

During this practical, interactive masterclass you will have the unique opportunity to work hands on with the horses to receive 100% unbiased instant feedback about your leadership style and the impact you have on others.

  • Are you an inspiring, compelling and motivating leader who people want to follow?
  • Are your behaviours aligned and congruent?
  • Is your communication clear and effective?

And if things are not going as planned then you have an opportunity to re-calibrate

what you’re doing and experience a different result.

There is no horse riding during this masterclass as all sessions are carried out on the ground and it doesn’t matter whether you have any horse experience or not. The opportunity for a breakthrough, whether in your business or personal life, is profound. This event is all about experiential learning, so you will also be participating providing feedback on what you observe.

Some of the outcomes you can expect are:

  • How you need to grow for your business to grow
  • Leading out of your comfort zone
  • How to use your leadership strengths to overcome barriers to success
  • The importance of body language and how to communicate with clarity
  • Creating a collaborative team
  • Negotiating conflict
  • and so much ……….
