Can the military help your business and correct use of apostrophe?
At this first meeting of our new year, under the direction of our new Chairman, Mike Edward we have two speakers from very different backgrounds.
Personnel leaving the armed services make ideal employees for many reasons, Peter Liddle from the Officers Association will tell us why and offer the skills and assistance of a serving officer to your company for FREE for up to six weeks to complete a project in within your company.
We will also have a light-hearted talk from Zoe Whitby who shares an obsession sparked by a challenging job opportunity in her early career when she agreed to boldly enter the realm of grammar, [sic], Plain English, and split infinitives. This light hearted presentation will get you thinking and talking. Is it time to put a full stop to your miss use of punctuation and question whether you know your tomatoes from your tomato’s? She’ll have you reaching for your red pens or squirming in your seats as you realise some of the errors you might be guilty of.
Based in Knaresborough, Zoë is director of ZW Coaching where she trains, coaches and facilitates team events to help people perform better in their work and deliver improved results. She also supports individuals in career change situations in re-engaging with their strengths and building confidence in applying for jobs. She has been Chair of Business Ladies around Harrogate (BLaH) since 2012 and is proud to have developed this non-membership monthly networking group to benefit local small business owners.
