The How to of Employee Engagement


We are delighted to be welcoming Shay McConnon to lead this event giving you practical ways to create the culture of engagement where staff are happy, engaged, well led and productive.


The business case for employee engagement has been made, but people struggle to create it. Shay will share with you his approach for a multigenerational workplace. He specialises in mind set and behaviour change i.e. bringing about the change rather than talking about it – transformation rather than information.


The greatest source of inefficiency for most organisations lies in working relationships.

  • 75+% of people leave jobs because of relationship issues
  • A typical manager loses 25% of his/her day to unnecessary conflict
  • Only 30% of people trust their bosses


Despite billions being spent on leadership, we keep on having the same old costly people problems - conflict, mistrust, low morale and disengagement.


This is an old problem that requires a new approach, a different style of leadership, a culture that breeds openness, trust and engagement.


He will give you practical examples and tools you can use immediately to engage your staff and get them taking ownership for their issues. Shay gives you not only the Why and the What, but the How to for creating the workplace of the future, now.


Learn how to embed the What am I going to do? not What is management going to do? mind-set and the difference this has made to the culture of Siemens, Qatar Airways, CERN, Heineken, Environment Agency and others.


Best of all, this change is driven by individuals, not management. It will equip your people to manage their working relationships and to make their place of work an even better place to work.


This practical, hands-on session will enable you to achieve

  • Higher levels of staff engagement

  • More ownership from everyone

  • Happier, more productive people

  • Reduced absenteeism and attrition



Refreshments will be served from 17:30hrs with the event starting promptly at 18:00hrs.

Please bring your re-useable water bottle so we can do our bit to reduce plastic waste!
