Event description

Description

Within this 3-hour session we will be covering some of the hottest issues and the latest trends in development. This event will allow you to network amongst your peers and gain further insight into the challenges they are currently facing and how to overcome them.

Speakers:

1. Preparing graduates to think and act differently, Milan Vrucinic, Consultant, Accenture

New graduates are looking for challenging, meaningful work aligned with their personal values at the times when work itself is changing with digital automation, making entry level roles more and more demanding. This all makes graduates’ learning curve steeper than ever. Therefore, great onboarding needs to teach graduates not only new knowledge and skills, but also the new behaviours needed to be successful.

In this session we will cover three techniques Accenture uses to prepare students for the world of work, to think and act differently:
1. Learning to learn for yourself – using micro-actions to practice new behaviours and form new habits
2. Learning to innovate, take risks, and not be afraid to fail – harnessing passion and competition to solve real problems.
3. Learning to have difficult conversations - using digital technology to practise for face to face discussions


2. 'Onboarding: Implementing best-practice in your organisation”, Sarah Hobbs, Managing Director, Talent & Potential
Our interactive workshop has been designed to help those attending:

- Understand the key purposes of onboarding

- Assess their current onboarding strategy

- Identify suitable metrics to measure the effectiveness of onboarding


3. Valuing the old, embracing the new, Claire Noble, New Talent Manager, Cadent Gas Ltd. and Lucy Neale, Director, Interaction Learning and Development

Cadent and Interaction Learning and Development will share the story of how a 200 year old start-up company went about adopting, adapting and changing their graduate programme to meet the individual development and organisational needs. They will share how they worked in partnership to make the right decisions and what they have learnt along the way.


4. Professional Skills - what does that mean? Melinda Dixon, Head of Learning and Development, FDM

The value of developing professional skills in today’s competitive market.
Looking at how the Professional Skills module within the FDM Graduate Programme has progressed.
What we did, why we did it and the impact it has had on our graduates.
