WINNING ASSIGNMENTS MASTERCLASS

Workshop Summary

THIS WORKSHOP IS LIMITED TO JUST EIGHT PEOPLE. THIS GIVES US THE CHANCE TO GO DEEPLY INTO THE SUBJECT WITH EACH DELEGATE AND ANSWER THEIR SPECIFIC QUESTIONS.  YOU WILL THEREFORE NEED TO BOOK EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT AND COME WITH PLENTY OF QUESTIONS!!

 

 
OBJECTIVE
 

To help you to win the type of work you want, when you want, at the day rate you want.

 

 
AGENDA
 

This highly practical, hands-on workshop runs from 1.00pm-5.00pm.

As we limit the size of groups, there will flexibility around how long we spend on each of the topics below and plenty of time for specific questions and concerns you may have. The key areas we cover are:

 

WHAT ARE YOU? 
 

Whether we like it or not, people will pigeonhole us. The worst place to be put is the ‘miscellaneous’ pigeonhole because hardly anyone looks in it. The trick is for you to pick the pigeonhole that people put you in. How? Well that’s what this part of the workshop is all about. We will help you define this and then use it as the basis of your LinkedIn profile. I promise you it will be more compelling than being a ‘flexible, versatile, dynamic, inspiring, results-oriented change leader’!! And you won’t feel like you’re bragging!

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF PROOF
 

Now, we can put whatever we want in our profile, but will anyone believe us? Most of us are programmed to take everything people say with a pinch (or more) of salt, especially if we think they are trying to sell us something. What convinces people more than anything else is your track record. Stick to the facts, include real results you have achieved and go easy on the meaningless clichés. We’ll use a template to turn your career into a series of compelling achievements.

 
WHO CARES?
 

It would be nice to think that everyone is waiting with baited breath to see what we do next, but we know that isn’t true for most of us. The fact is that generally speaking, people only care and want to meet us when they believe we could help them. So who are these people and where are they? This session is all about targeting and segmentation, helping you get the best return on your marketing efforts. LinkedIn has some terrific tools to help you do just that.

 

IT’S NOT WHAT YOU KNOW.............
 

…it’s who you know. We’ve asked hundreds of successful people to define their no.1 driver of success and 99% of them say ………NETWORKING. But what is networking and how do you do it? For those of you who wince at the thought of it, you may find this session somewhat reassuring. Using LinkedIn, we will help you not only build your network but use it to your advantage.

 

GRABBING ATTENTION
 

Most of the time people are looking for an excuse not to meet you. They’re busy and are miserly with their time. They need to know that a meeting with you will be a worthwhile use of their time and that boils down to whether they believe you can help them fix an issue they face. We’ll use a template here that will help you grab attention over and over again.

 

PREPARE TO SUCCEED
 

We’ve all conducted thousands of meetings throughout our working lives. The trouble is, we may lapse into ‘unconscious incompetence’ (no offence) and be ‘winging it’ more than is healthy. In this session we will be looking at how to prepare to make the most of each and every meeting. One delegate emailed to say the tool we used in this session had been instrumental in winning two consulting assignments within three weeks.

 

COST
 

This four-hour workshop costs just £225.00 + VAT 

TESTIMONIALS

Approaching the process of self-presentation and self-marketing has never been put more lucidly, entertainingly and effectively

Ken Sikora

Have been following your advice and am pleased to say that on Thursday I was offered not one but two different six month contracts. One was at a significantly higher day rate than the other and more like the work I was doing at Citi so I was very pleased to accept it – and start on Monday

Heather-Anne Hubbell

Having decided that I wished to leave the security of full time employment, I felt I needed some really good advice to help me plan my new life as an “interim” manager. I wanted to be able to speak to someone directly – to receive help and suggestions that were tailored to my personal circumstances, and help me to achieve my specific goals. Working with Simon provided me with sound advice, and a list of actions – these have helped me enormously in the setting up and marketing of my business, and I would have no hesitation in recommending a coaching session to anyone considering a similar move themselves

Martin Smith

In a few short hours he helped me crystalise my plans. His experience and abilities to transfer knowledge answered numerous questions – even questions I didn’t know I had! Simon has a friendly, yet authoritative style overlaid on a “get it done” approach.

As a direct result of his insight and guidance, I have enjoyed an outstanding period in Interim Management.
Without doubt, time with Simon was one of the best investments I have ever made. Whether you are just thinking of stepping out on your own, are looking for a sounding board or need to re-focus, contact Simon. You will not be disappointed

Eamonn Philipson

I attended an Interim Management course Simon ran and it was one of the best courses I’ve ever been on. Simon is an excellent presenter who knows his subject well and the course content was pitched just right for the audience. He has a friendly and engaging style but most importantly he provided information and advice which enabled me to quickly find an assignment. I can thoroughly recommend Simon and would have no hesitation in using his coaching services in the future.

Denise Him

The session with Simon gave me three key benefits:

1. A good market understanding
2. Great tools to tackle the new way of working
3. The confidence to succeed – I have started my first assignment ahead of schedule.
Well worth my time. Stopped me hesitating and started me going for change wholeheartedly

Richard Lerner

Even the world’s elite sportsmen and women need expert coaches to ensure they remain sharp and on top of their game. When I first considered interim management, I attended a workshop run by Simon and I subsequently had a “one to one” with him on the very specific subject of identifying and presenting my usp’s. I found his expertise and creative approach most helpful and his personable style engaging

Stephen Price

Simon is an expert on all aspects of interim management and a first class presenter. He speaks authoritatively, with great insight, and a lot of good humour. His courses are excellent value and are acknowledged as immensely helpful for both new and experienced interim managers. Simon is motivated by a strong desire to improve business performance and management effectiveness at all levels, and this is backed up by expert knowledge and comprehensive experience
