Whole company teams, CEOs, Business Audiences, Boards, Trustees, Directors, Senior Managers.
These really are the most exciting of times for business! The world of business has changed: nothing is a given any more and the playing fields are being levelled - not only between small and larger organisations, but also internationally. Winning businesses are those focussed on the new fundamentals - linked to an innate ability to adapt and be fleet of foot facilitated by the ultilisation of the latest technology which is arriving at eye watering speeds.
Recent times have jolted organisations back to the fundamentals. Every business leader – whether they are running a small or large business, service or manufacturing, the professions, not-for-profit, government or NGO needs to understand and then focus mercilessly on the new basics of business, to ensure sustained success. The role of the successful Leader today has also been redefined - with an ability to spend time in the helicopter whilst keeping it simple - at the core. This speech explores these fundamentals of business - any business - and the new role of the business leader whilst keeping it practical and not departing into the realms of complexity and business school speak.

BREAKING NEWS - SPECIAL OFFER
Make your 60-seconds of fame last much longer!
Immediately following this Chamber breakfast, Charlie Round-Turner Photography and South West London TV are teaming up to offer members a special introductory Photo and Video package. This is ideal for businesses and charities who need to engage clients through social media, or gain trust and credibility by showing the people behind their brand.
For £25 you get a professional head and shoulders profile photo from Charlie Round-Turner. Charlie will take several shots and you get to choose the best one there and then, to be finalised and sent to you electronically later that week.
For £50, South West London TV will video your 60 second “elevator pitch”, add a professional name caption with your choice of contact details, and publish it on YouTube for their 20,000 subscribers to see and for you to share.
Photos and Video are both great tools for giving someone a quick sense of who you are, engaging them emotionally, and attracting more traffic to your website via SEO and social media sharing. Using “rich media” like photos and video clips in your marketing is proven to be many times more effective than plain text for sharing what you do in an attention-grabbing way.
To book your Photo & Video session after the breakfast, please contact Charlie (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the first instance, and if you’re interested in discussing more involved, tailor-made video or photography services, we’d be happy to chat further at the breakfast.
This introductory offer has limited places, and bookings will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
*Both offers will be filmed/ shot immediately after the Breakfast in an adjoining room
