Lessons from the Changing Room

Description: What can business learn from sport, and where can sport learn from business?

Don Armand, a Zimbabwean-born former England international rugby union player, will speak about various aspects of his sports career that served as key learning points for his move into the business world.

Now running a leadership development business that deals with strategy, leadership and culture, Don will share his insights into the machinations of business. Playing professional sport at high levels provided Don with discipline and character as well as in-depth knowledge of how a team works and how to get results through working on the culture, communication and individual development of a team. Don is now able to apply these traits to his international client base.
Some of the key points covered will be:

•   Team alignment and culture
•   Why people should be your focus
•   The importance of strategy
•   The demons that measurable can create
•   Communicating to different personalities

During the evening there will be an opportunity to network over drinks, nibbles and wine tasting kindly hosted by Perold Wine Cellar.

Free to members; non-members £30 inc VAT. Booking is essential.
