Getting good people in the right job positions - and understanding how to retain them, are both critical roles of management. Eleven business owners and MDs joined us for this small chamber workshop where guest speaker Andy McCreadie from Sandler Training shared ‘tried and tested’ methods for creating a robust hiring process. We looked at how you can ensure you get the right people in the right roles and shared tactics for improving staff engagement and loyalty.

We returned to the Regal Club for a special session ‘The Power of goal setting’
As we approach the end of 2016, it seems fitting that our focus for the evening should be on the power of goal setting. Guest speaker Andy McCreadie from Sandler Training will talk to us about the correlation between high performance and goal setting and will help us improve our attitudes towards both risk taking and learning through failing. If you want to make 2017 your best growth year yet, come and join us at our final networking event of 2016.

Following the talk we'll be networking and taking the opportunity to see the new refurbishment of the Regal Club, we'll be having an early Christmas drink together after which you can opt to stay for a special three course supper provided at £15.95 per head.
