A focus on: The Power of One


A focus on: The Power of One

How can you put the individual at the heart of your engagement strategy?

An upcoming event aims to look at exactly that, and you’re invited to join the conversation. On 15 October, #thefuturestory – The Power of One aims to deliver “stimulating thinking and actionable ideas to help you make an impact on your company’s future story.”

It’s being organised by the excellent team at theblueballroom @theblueballroom agency here in the UK and is the latest in their thefuturestory events, which I’ve attended and blogged about before.

TFSThe free five-hour long event in a few weeks’ time focuses on the power and personality of the individual, and plans to give attendees fresh ideas that place people at the heart of their organisation’s engagement strategy.

Award-winning business editor Stuart Rock @stuart_rock will open the day, then it will move onto presentations and interactive workshops from some insightful speakers.

How to Influence
Dr Rob Yeung will share findings from a decade of research that has identified ‘organisational savvy’ as a skill related to success in the workplace. He’ll demonstrate how we can develop that skill in ourselves to increase influence and personal impact.

The Science of Happiness
Psychologist, Rens Ter WeijdeIn will share the latest science on what makes us feel and do well in life and will help you relate this knowledge to your personal and professional life.

Discover your Authentic Voice
Christine Mockford, a communications coach, will run an interactive workshop on learning to speak with confidence and helping others to find their natural communications style.

Full info
Thefuturestory is on Wednesday 15 October, from 9.15am – 2pm at RADA Studios, Chenies Street, London, WC1E 7EX.

Book your free ticket here or join in the conversation online using #thefuturestory on Twitter or see the dedicated LinkedIn group.

Future events

CIPRINSIDEThis Thursday is the annual internal communication conference from CIPR Inside.

I’m looking forward to attending and hearing from the speakers and lightning talk sessions. It will be my last CIPR Inside committee engagement before starting maternity leave, so I’ll be on the reception desk with the team to welcome attendees to the conference. I hope to see you there.

If you can’t attend the Kia Oval in person, keep an eye on the hashtag #ICconf14.
