Need to broaden and sharpen your Business understanding for delivering Geospatial solutions?
Want to get your work noticed by the board?
For existing Geospatial Professionals who wants to learn more about understanding business needs, how BIM fits with Geospatial, Process Improvement and communicating the value of Geospatial Information to a wider audience.
Organisers: This course is brought to you by GeoEnable, in association with their partner Leica Geosystems
Your experience Level: Intermediate | Course Style: Classroom Seminar / Post-course online Consultation. This course is not a hands-on technical training session.
Exclusive Session - Places are limited to ensure best learning outcomes with a small group. There are only 15 places max. on this course.
** This course includes a buffet lunch and tea & coffee throughout the day. **
At GeoEnable we are focused on democratising the power of geospatial, information management, quality asset information and intergrated insight into everyday business decison-making.
We are official partners with both Esri and Leica Geosystems.
This is not a hands-on technical training course. This is a seminar-based training course, using tutor-led presentations, case studies and real world examples. The opportunity for group participation / discussion is throughout the day.
This course focuses on improving communication and business awareness skills for Geospatial professionals in such a fast-paced and competitive environment. Follow-up calls are provided to help embed learning outcomes.
This course will take place in the luxury surroundings of a Grade II listed building 'One Great George Street' - the HQ of The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) - close to the Houses of Parliament. Your lunch and tea & coffee are all provided. We aim to ensure that we provide you with a quality course in all senses – quality training, your experience on the day and follow-up support.

Basic Framework for Our Course - it take more that technology alone to 'Geo-Enabe' your data:
** This course includes a buffet lunch and tea & coffee throughout the day. **
This is not a hands-on technical training course. This is a seminar-based day with follow-up calls to help you embed and use what you learn.
This Master-class learning solution help close the gap between your current level of technical achievement and your next level of business excellence. New for 2016: We also look at the workflows of information in field data capture - from field to office use and re-use.
An ongoing challenge to technical experts is the ability to fully understand how technical solutions fit in the wider context of the business challenges of an organisation and how to communicate this business value. This is what we are experienced in.
We show you how to demonstrate the value add of using your solutions. It may be with Return on Investment (RoI), but typically communicating the value is not the straight forward – it’s about understating your organisational challenges, targets and your colleagues’ skills and mind-set.
We help you understand and communicate the value add that spatial analysis, Web GIS and critically the integration of these into business processes / integrated workflows gives your organisation.
Field Data Capture - we will look at High-Accuracy Data Collection for field-to-office data management & workflow - using the ZenoCollector, from Leica Geosystems, as a real-world example.
We will make you think: Purpose, People, Process, Information & Enabling Technologies. Technologies is always the last things we look at. Purpose is the ‘why’ do we (and your clients - this could be internal users and stakeholders) need these technologies in the first place – we need to establish this clearly and on multi-levels.
Using relevant demonstrations and examples to your stakeholders via an informal 'Show and tell' and understand their real needs – we make you think about quick demonstration sessions and to engage with colleagues and clients in their language and tackling their business challenges - with no jargon.
You will appreciate the it’s not technology alone that will make a difference, but only these:
Communication, Understanding, Storytelling, Sharing, Collaboration, Community Engagement and constant improvement - that keep you ahead of the game as a Geospatial Professional.
You will also understand the opportunities around 'BIM' and understating other non-geospatial IT terms.
Overview of GeoEnable:
Jeremy Murfitt, Director - Everything is Somewhere Ltd
"The use of GIS in my business compliments my work as a chartered surveyor and property manager. I have used Esri products for many years and generally use them “out of the box”... with the progression of ArcGIS Online further opportunities arose to move clients from the trustworthy “PDF” world to online mapping.
Whilst having an access to ArcGIS Online via my desktop licence setting and configuring the software was proving more complex. I therefore sought the services of GeoEnable to steer me through the best ways of using ArcGIS Online... I am now able to confidently set up map services for clients and also introduce them to many of the features available in ArcGIS Online. Steven Eglinton guided me through the process involved and has provided ongoing support."
Lilia Wydra, GIS Manager – Argent (Property Development) Services LLP
“I strongly believe that access to GIS information should flow through the whole business and throughout the lifecycles of Developments, Projects and Assets. This however, if not appropriately managed, can lead to decreased efficiency of produced information. Even the most advanced Web GIS can become unproductive if data control processes are not in place.
It is very important to identify where this sharing can be free and where it should be tightly controlled. Steven Eglinton, from GeoEnable, helped us with reviewing our existing information systems and helped us align it with all business processes. This was absolutely critical. GeoEnable assisted us with the improvement of information governance and formal processes which in return significantly enhanced access to Argent’s GIS and other information resources.”
