Inspiring teams to greater results

We were delighted to run a couple of workshops in Cambridge last month, including a very enjoyable morning with members of theCambridge Network getting involved with the engaging and practical ‘Creating High Performance Teams’ business simulation exercise. It is safe to say it was a little different from the usual breakfast meeting!

Andrea Mitchell, Events Delivery at Cambridge Network said: "Thank you all so much for coming along this morning and getting the group so involved. It was great to have something so totally different for a change!". Comments from the participants included "very good, food for thought", "fantastic speakers, really innovating" and "fun way of learning".
Come and experience our activity-based seminar for yourself
After hugely successful events in London and Manchester last year, we are once again teaming with Intergence to host the activity based seminar Creating Collaborative and High Performing Teams at Asia House, 63 New Cavendish Street, London, W1G 7LP on Thursday 16 April between 9.30 and 12.30. The event is free and includes refreshments and a buffet lunch.
“The first time I experienced the simulation it was a complete eye-opener and surprise. I could not believe the impact of the activity on team working. The game not only awakened the characteristics of highly effective teams but it demonstrated just what amazing results can be achieved when people work together.”
Chris Noblet, Ex-CEO, Avelo

Be the best communicator you can be

Nature illustrates how Earth, Air, Water and Fire work together in synergy. It is hard to imagine life or a sustainable environment without each one of them. Similarly, in human nature, we all have aspects of all four elements.

Earth elements are confident in the way they walk and talk. Goals, control, achievement and winning are important. Quick, possibly risky, decisions come easily to them.

Air elements are orderly and focused individuals who rely on abilities to think things out. They excel in finding logical solutions and making sense of situations. Air elements listen and plan to ensure accuracy and quality.

Water elements are caring and consistent and are important in holding families and teams together. They are loyal and deeply feeling people who show steadfast effort, great patience and a desire for harmony.

Fire elements look at the positive side of life, they love to explore possibilities and inspire others to see bright futures. They are good innovators, creative, love variety and have a great sense of fun.

Revolutionising property marketing

Data is everywhere. From your website analytics to what you buy on your weekly shop. And with the help of all this data, sales and marketing processes have been transformed. The scatter-gun approach of mindlessly pushing your product to all and sundry has taken a back seat to the science of segmentation and analytic prediction. Don’t just do more, do better.

Predicting how your potential customers are going to behave is the holy grail of sales and marketing and one company taking full advantage of this philosophy is The Outside Viewwho are set to revolutionise the world of the Estate Agent, focusing on probability rather than opportunity by predicting how likely the target customer is to actually move.

CEO Rob Symes says “For years, marketeers have just been told to send more letters, more emails, more brochures. Volume takes significant time, effort and cost to achieve. Now volume will be replaced by micro-targeting specific homeowners, marketeers will be free to do what they always wanted to do in the first place. Write great content. Content that persuades and informs, that’s specific to a person rather than generic to a house. Content that makes a person feel special, understood and valued. Homes are personal. Marketing should reflect this.”

Marketeers in all walks of commerce will be nodding along to this sentiment.
