Event Details

Event starts with breakfast at 07:30.




73% of current appraisal systems don't work...and only 19% of employees think their appraisal system is effective.

Ditching traditional performance appraisal has become fashionable of late with the likes of Deloitte and Accenture going in a more progressive direction. But we at Lightbulb have been helping organisations do this for years!

Our 90-minute seminar includes:

• Why traditional performance appraisal doesn't work and how you can move away from it

• The difference between activities, results and achievements that will change everything for you!

• Going beyond the cliché of SMART objectives and how to measure anything at work!

• The triggers that tell you if a performance/development objective is needed

• Creating amazing 'early warning' metrics and KPIs that tell you what to do before it’s too late!


The seminar will benefit mid to senior-level HR practitioners and other key decision-makers/stakeholders with an interest in the subject. A light breakfast is served at 7:30 and the formal seminar begins at 8am.


Our speaker:

Paul Marsh - Lightbulb

Paul Marsh is the founding Director of Lightbulb, a performance training, coaching and HR consultancy that aims to challenge the clichés and ‘best practices’ to help get stuff done at work in less painful ways! Lightbulb’s alternative approach to managing performance has been trained in large and small organisations including Pizza Express, Vogue, Mulberry, RBS, Eurostar and the University of the Arts.

Paul’s corporate life took in sales, operational, board and senior HR roles across 20 years before launching Lightbulb. He is also the author of ‘HR & Other Swear Words: Practical & Credible HR for Beginners’. This book is aimed at those new to HR or those looking for a different approach and provides the tools to make a difference in the function from ‘day one’. You can see more at
