The seminar was commissioned by Pinsent Masons, and held at their impressive offices on Earl Street (near Liverpool Street Station) overlooking the city. The morning began with bacon sandwiches and a coffee, whilst listening to Dr Kate Hays (the Team Psychologist of Harlequins Rugby Union) explaining that the underpinning values of all teams are the same; there must be one shared goal and the importance of team ethos.
After a short coffee break, the Director of Finance at Inmarsat Global Ltd, the FD at Legal & General Property and the MD of Anthony Hodges Consulting, debated what they saw as the major risks in their organisations; operational technicalities or smooth people management? The full transcript from this discussion will be available in the seminar’s downloadable report – released at the end of June.
After questions from the floor to the panel, the last hour was a case study from our sponsors Pinsent Masons, covering practical thinking for optimising workforce talent – a case study to think about and take back to their employees. practical theories for FDs to start implementing now into their everyday lives.
It was a great morning, extremely informative with a lot to go back to the office and think about. Huge thanks to all our speakers and delegates from Pinsent Masons and ourselves.
