What do consultants say after they say 'Hello'?

There are two questions to which every human being constantly needs an answer to keep sane: "Who am I?" and, "What am I doing here?"

Most of the time we never give these questions a second thought, mainly because, traumatic crises aside, we unconsciously decide the answers at an early stage of life.

But describing oneself as a consultant can bring these decisions into sharp relief.

Malcolm Sleath is the developer of 12boxes, which has been described as a superb framework for thinking though, planning and executing the process of client engagement.

In this talk he reflects upon how we position ourselves with clients and how attitudes and assumptions can make the difference between seemingly effortless success, and frustration, struggle, and eventual burn-out.

General Meeting

Gareth Bunn
Speaker: Gareth Bunn Speech and persuasion In an increasingly competitive world, we need to ensure that all our spoken word communications - messages and presentations - really hit the mark. So, good advice would be to start by ditching PowerPoint – let’s get back to what really works with humans. Gareth Bunn presented at RG meetings in 2010 on this subject and also at our annual conference in 2011. Perhaps it is time we all had a refresh….?

Speaker: Gareth Bunn has had several successful careers - in the Civil Service, as a Management Consultant and Partner in Ernst & Young, and in IT services where he was Vice President at Capgemini responsible for the Transport and Travel sector and then the Public Services sector For the last 10 years he has run his own business specialising in communications and leadership, providing strategic bid coaching, training and leadership coaching Gareth is licensed to teach and use the “Kipper” tool.
