We have partnered up and hosted a range of successful business development and networking events based in Peterborough, Northampton and Cambridge.

Driving Emotional Intelligence and Reducing Stress in your Organisation

18th September 2018

Our first event of the month, based in Northampton Saints, was led by speakers Julian Hall (Calm People) and Hilary McLellan (Indigo People). The working session led our attendees to understand how to manage stress within their own individual lives, as well as spotting key indicators of stress in others within a working environment.

Julian Hall looked in detail at the 5 stress pillars that he has previously touched on before, including a coaching process on what they mean and when the stress becomes unhealthy; approval, priority, pressure, control, trust.

Hilary McLellan looked at 5 of the EI competencies which helped people develop their own EI but also align closely to the stress pillars. She went through what they can mean and how they can support in times of stress and too much pressure; self-confidence, straightforwardness, self-actualisation, self-control, adaptability.

ACCA/CIMA: Practical Experience Requirement Guidance

18th September – 20th September 2018

To enhance individuals' professional accounting experience – we hosted two ACCA/CIMA events this month in Peterborough and Cambridge. These sessions were designed to provide additional practical experience to our attendee’s academic studies.

Our informative sessions looked at; the basic requirements to document individuals PER, job roles relevant to demonstrate the required skills and how PER is evidenced and approved.

Profile Your Talent with Clarity4D

25th September 2018

We partnered up with talent development coach Shaun Beck to bring to life a work session on Clarity4D.

The session focused on how to manage the varying personality profiles within a workplace setting. Communication is key to understanding, thus Shaun engaged our attendees in communicating with employees, to encourage them to be themselves whilst avoiding conflict at work.

Skill Led Start-ups: Building a Diverse Tech Talent Toolbox

27th September 2018

Start-ups are often the brainchild of a single or small group of entrepreneurs looking to make a difference in both their’s and other’s lives, usually highly skilled and proactive by nature this individual or group will be looking to replicate their values and their approach in the employees they hire and the culture they are trying to create.

Unfortunately, this aim comes at a cost, true tech talent can be demanding and fickle when it comes to deciding on their next career move, looking for big salaries, the latest innovation and flexible working environment. The ONE Group partnered with Barclays Eagle Labs to bring you a working session on your operating environment, the availability of talent and how to recruit the best talent.
