    About Our Virtual Networking Event:

    Our Virtual Networking Event will be hosted using Zoom. All attendees will receive a link after payment has been made via your booking confirmation to access the event on the day. The event will begin at 9.45am for a 10.00pm start with an optional 30 minute business seminar (see details below). After the seminar and everyone has arrived there, will be an introduction by Business Network Birmingham host, Simon Coy, before everyone will go to their separate virtual "Tables" for introductions and a round table conversation. As always the "Tables" will be planned in advance. This will be followed by our 10 minute speaker and finally a series of pre-arranged member offers / announcements before we close the meeting at 12 noon.  You won't need to rush away as the room will remain open for networking.

    Seminar Synopsis:

    The terms mental health and well-being have grown in focus over the last 12 months. As individuals things sometimes feel harder and if we lead others, it hasn?t always been easy to look after both our own well-being and also those around us.

    Through this thought provoking, practical session we'll review 4 simple coaching questions leaders and managers can use to understand and support others. We'll also take a look as what we need to listen out for to really help us spot what's important to those around us and use this to help motivate others.

    We'll also explore 10 levels of delegation, yep, there are 10 levels that give us the language to delegate effectively!

    Content:
    • 4 simple questions to coach on the spot
    • Being able to figure out really motivates us and those around us

To say that The Business Network stands head and shoulders above the rest is only telling it how it is. The format is excellent and relaxing which get the best out of everyone. I can heartily recommend Business Network."
