Swan, Shakespeare's Globe, London ~ 08.00 - 10.45 Wednesday 26th June 2019

Many organisations invest in training, upskilling and developing their people, responding to continuous technological change and the needs of the workforce.

We are often so busy trying to deliver training programmes, the critical requirement of how to achieve sustainable impact is forgotten. Slides do not change the world, even when supported by a no-brainer business case. Nor do meaningless team building exercises.

With the help of brain science, we know how to design development programmes that deliver results more effectively than we did 50 years ago, 10 years ago, two years ago, and even last month.

First Ascent work with organisations to bring a fresh, contemporary, scientifically robust and bespoke approach to people development.

Driving performance and achieving measurable results is always our number one priority for clients. We believe people development should deliver a significant return on investment, otherwise it is not worth doing.

We support organisations across a variety of sectors and clients such as Santander, Sika and English Heritage are all committed to partnering with us to deliver great results.

The Breakfast Briefing

This interactive workshop will explore how measurable and sustainable results can be delivered and give you an opportunity to think differently about how you might approach people development in your organisation.

During the morning, we will give examples of how other organisations have achieved success and the results their programmes have produced. You will also have the opportunity to discuss your own experiences and challenges, as well as experience some of the techniques First Ascent employ when working with clients.

This free-to-attend breakfast briefing has been designed to be valuable, informative and enjoyable. We do hope that you can join us.
