England Manager Sven-Göran Eriksson will be sharing his management secrets at this year’s CIPD Annual Conference and Exhibition running from 22-24 October 2003 at the Harrogate International Exhibition Centre.
Birmingham City Football Club managing director Karren Brady will also be at the conference to share her wisdom. Average gates have have almost quadrupled since Brady has been MD, so big capacity audiences are expected.
Other guest topics/speakers include: Are We Serious? with Nick Clarke, presenter of BBC Radio 4’s World at One, Susan Vinnicombe, Professor of Organisational Behaviour and Diversity Management at Cranfield School of Management, and Jean Tomlin, group director of human resources with Marks & Spencer.
Both high-profile figures will be discussing issues close to their heart. Eriksson’s subject is how to get the best out of people and Brady will be disscusing whether the UK is serious about developing women leaders.
The exhibition is sure to attract the crowds as Eriksson will be interviewed by René Carayol, chief executive of Business Consultancy. Other well known speakers include the professor Susan Greenfield, the mountaineer Bear Grylls and businessman Sir Adrian Cadbury. Their themes range across managing in a crisis, toxic emotions at work, how to manage the media and work-life balance.
