Event description

Description

Final Friday Science: An initiative to offer business leaders innovative, profit boosting, scientific talks, along with great networking opportunities and fabulous coffee.

We start promptly at 08.30 and we will finish by ten o’clock, but do arrive early for the first hit of coffee. You will hear useful presentations, meet fascinating people and fit this easily into your working day.

Final Friday Science is a collaboration between The British Psychological Society (South West), Set Squared* and Haddleton Knight. The events are aimed squarely at decision makers, with unapologetically top drawer speakers tasked to give you memorable scientific information to help your organization’s performance.

Dr Elicia Robinson

Elicia is a chartered social psychologist, certified change manager and leadership coach with deep knowledge of how to understand, inspire and lead people through change in organisations.

Recognised as Subject Matter Expert and Technical co-Lead for Culture Change at Atkins, Elicia has an affinity for identifying the psychodynamic factors that frame mindsets, foster engagement, and facilitate better ways of working. Much of her success stems from appreciating how personal values shape the way we evaluate ideas and experience.

Having earned a PhD from Cambridge titled “The Psychology of Change in Organisations: Mindsets and the Paradox of Continuity”, Elicia has gained extensive exposure to best practice in helping individuals, teams and businesses build the leadership capabilities to improve how we develop and inspire people to change, grow and go further.

Elicia will present the crux of her doctoral research in a talk titled ‘The Psychology of Buy-in’ where she will discuss her key finding in in the race to become fit for the fast-approaching future, solutions that hinge on the way ideas are framed and reframed, solutions that inspire leadership potential and purpose – so that leaders of today can change tomorrow for the better.
