Growth Through Innovation & Impact ft. Guest Speakers from Sound Training
Sunderland Business School is pleased to announce its second series of the popular Business Breakfast Seminars, which will take place from January – June 2017. All of the award-winning businesses invited to lead these events represent different facets of the core theme which is Leading with Impact. Not only do they represent a clear alignment with the core values of our Strategic Plan, the award winning businesses leading these free events have been carefully selected as aligning with the core values underlining our new strategic plan: inspiring, innovative, collaborative, inclusive and excellent.
Leading with Impact also reflects our commitment to developing excellence in leadership and management development as one of our strategic growth areas. Indeed our new dual accredited (with the CMI) BA (Hons) in Leadership and Management - a Chartered Management Degree Apprenticeship.
The seminars provide a learning and networking opportunity where award winning business leaders share their experience and expertise on the major challenges facing organizations today. This is a great opportunity for business leaders to start the working day with some with some time out to learn from their peers, share experiences, reflect, and engage in lively dialogue about the best ways of addressing key strategic challenges.
Prior to the seminar starting, participants are able to take advantage of a light business breakfast and an opportunity to make initial introductions and network. During the seminar itself, speakers will leave plenty of time for an interactive dialogue and debate on the lessons learnt from their experiences.
The seminars will take place between 8-10am on Thursdays at Sunderland Business School, the Reg Vardy Centre, St Peter’s Campus, St Peter’s Way, Sunderland SR6 0DD on the following dates:
