Event Details

CIPD North Yorkshire branch are delighted to be hosting our 1st joint event with the local branch of The Institute of Leadership & Management who we are grateful to for helping to organise this event.

If you are involved in people leadership/management, HR, L&D or coaching in the workplace then please do come along to this event; especially if you are interested in leadership, teamwork and high performance.



Sports and business are both quintessentially high performance environments sharing the same requirements for leadership, teamwork and a high performance mindset. However, the corporate world has yet to achieve the systematic performance improvement that elite athletes so often demonstrate.


Our expert panel will share the findings of our recent white paper, which highlights the parallels that may be drawn in business and sport, and lessons for leadership.



Join us for refreshments and informal networking from 1800.

The event will start at 1830 and end at approximately 2100* (please note the end time is dependent on volume of questions).

The evening will start with informal networking and refreshments, with our seminar running from 1830-2100 with a break partway through.


We are thankful to York St John University for supporting this event, by hosting this event in Temple Hall.



We are grateful to all those involved in this evening’s event - our speakers are:

This is a FREE event for CIPD Members, InstituteLM Members, and HR/Management/Sports Science students/lecturers from York St John University.

Non-CIPD/InstituteLM Members and Business Owners/Managers are also very welcome to attend at the non-members rate of £25+vat.

Early booking recommended as our events are often fully subscribed.



This event is free to attend for Members of CIPD or InstituteLM, and students/lecturers of York St John (HR/Business/Sports Science), however, we do reserve the right to charge a £10 no-show fee for those who are unable to attend who do not contact us with apologies (except in exceptional circumstances). 

Non-members booking places, these places are non-refundable except on the rare occasion that CIPD North Yorkshire needs to cancel the event.  If you are unable to attend, you may send a substitute attendee if notified to not later than 1700 on 12 March 2018.

All of our branch events are organised by volunteers who give up their time freely to provide CPD opportunities for others in North Yorkshire, events are funded through branch funds, and our speakers (who at most receive expenses only) give up their time freely to prepare and present their sessions. With this in mind, if you do book on an event and find you’re no longer able to attend – please email and give your apologies to those involved with the event – we really do appreciate this, especially in advance where possible as this might allow us to avoid catering wasteage, but if it’s an unavoidable last minute cancellation we’d still like to hear from you.
