In July and August, the Business Owners Forum will discuss “Techniques and traps in motivating and rewarding your team”. We will be running this topic on 15 July in Whangarei – and again on 19 August in Auckland. On the agenda will be discussion around techniques to motivate and reward your team – and in particular ways to tie remuneration to performance, and some of the traps inherent in doing this. This will be a must attend session for any business owner who is more interested in fostering a high performance team than “managing staff”.
The Whangarei session will be at the Elevate CA offices on 15 July – and the Auckland session will be at a yet-to-be-confirmed venue on 19 August. Both sessions will run from 5:30pm sharp until 7:00pm. Here are the panelists:
David Grindle (Whangarei session only). David is a partner with Webb Ross Lawyers, who were awarded the New Zealand Legal Personnel Employer of Choice at the 2007 Law Awards. Webb Ross takes motivating and rewarding their team very seriously – and David has a wealth of great knowledge in this area gleaned through trial, error – and ultimately success.
Rebecca Brennan (Auckland and Whangarei sessions). Rebecca is a director of Elevate CA Limited – and is an experienced leader and motivator of high performing teams. Rebecca has a lead-from-the-front ethos – and a wealth of great coal-face experience including tips and potential pitfalls in tying remuneration to performance while maintaining a positive and energised culture.
Michael Masterson (Auckland and Whangarei sessions). Although today a director of The Bottom Line Expense Reduction Limited, Michael is a former serial CEO with a talent for building great teams and great cultures as a strategy for achieving competitive advantage in large organisations. Michael has a keep-it-simple ethos, and will share some enlightening and entertaining war stories from his journey.
Jim Huse (Auckland session only). Jim is a Business Psychologist and director of Huse Hill Associates, whose modus operandi is to help connect an organisation’s people to its business plan through a convergence of psychology, technology and business objectives. Sound technical? Well come along to the Auckland session on 19 August and hear Jim’s unique take on this topic.
As always for Business Owners Forum events, this session will be free of charge, free of “sales pitches” – and will be targeted to owners of businesses turning over $1 million or more per annum. And there will be pizza, beer and wine to lubricate quality discussion.
Invites will be circulated to the Business Owners Forum e-mail list in early July. If you’d like to be included on that list, just contact Fraser Hurrell >>>.
