Influence for Impact: Developing Personal and Professional Resilience
Learn how to cope with challenging and dynamic environments, including the seismic changes which could affect you and your organisation following the UK’s decision to leave the EU.
In October 2015, CIPR LPS and Manchester Metropolitan University Business School launched the Influence for Impact report, identifying the top issues for communicators in local authorities, the NHS, Police and fire services. This is your chance to meet the author and two of the region’s leading influencers.
CIPR North West, in collaboration with CIPR LPS, is delighted to be the first regional group to deliver an Influence for Impact event on the topic of Developing Resilience.
Personal resilience was one of the top five issues for public service communicators identified by this national research project. In an environment where budgets have been slashed and expectations raised – resilience is essential. It is equally relevant to communicators working in consultancy, in-house or the third sector.
Wendy Moran, Senior Lecturer in Public Relations, who led the research project during her time as Chair of the LPS, will be opening the evening – providing an overview of the new challenges for communicators in the ongoing age of austerity.
Amanda Coleman, Head of Corporate Communications at Greater Manchester Police and Chair of the Association of Police Communicators, will be discussing the challenges and opportunities of working within this environment and the importance of resilience, both personally and in developing this within your team.
Simon Calderbank, founder of Big Knows and i2i associate partner (http://www.i2i-121.com/) will be outlining strategies to develop personal and professional resilience. The i2i programme has delivered significant breakthroughs for high-profile sporting and industry leaders through a blend of psychological approaches and themes, combined with ground-breaking research from neuroscience and supplemented with incredible anecdotal evidence. Simon will be outlining the incredibly effective i2i techniques.
