Marketing teams get creativity. Creativity is their life’s blood. The concern is that by setting up rules and processes, we might kill that creative spark that drives the art created by the marketing directive. Agile methodology is applying the art of science in order to uncomplicate and reduce unnecessary admin time -- the very thing that keeps us from spending more time making beautiful campaigns and generating innovative copy.
We’re going to talk to real life marketing teams who are using Agile methodologies to run their right-brained collaboration space – and are seeing tremendous results. We’ll talk war stories, great use cases, and ways to break down the siloes that are keeping your brilliant minds from making that next inspired leap.
Join us for a free web event sponsored by Workfront to uncover the real-life ways that creative directors are harnessing the power of agile marketing methodologies to rapidly make fantastic leaps and discoveries that fuel careers.
In this webinar, you’ll:
* Hear first-hand experiences from current creative teams using tried and true methods to build faster and respond to industry trends quickly
* Learn ways to increase the number of great ideas and proof of concepts
* Use data to analyze and capitalize on changes in projects, marketing and industry trends… before your competitors know what hit ‘em.
* Capture the lightning in a bottle that ensures amazing customer experiences.

Business continuity encompasses a loosely defined set of planning, preparatory and related activities which are intended to ensure that an organization's critical business functions will either continue to operate despite serious incidents or disasters that might otherwise have interrupted them, or will be recovered to an operational state within a reasonably short period. As such, business continuity includes three key elements: 1. Resilience: critical business functions and the supporting infrastructure are designed and engineered in such a way that they are materially unaffected by most disruptions, for example through the use of redundancy and spare capacity; 2. Recovery: arrangements are made to recover or restore critical and less critical business functions that fail for some reason. 3. Contingency: the organization establishes a generalized capability and readiness to cope effectively with whatever major incidents and disasters occur, including those that were not, and perhaps could not have been, foreseen. Contingency preparations constitute a last-resort response if resilience and recovery arrangements should prove inadequate in practice.
This webinar will consider the complementary disciplines of security, crisis, business continuity and disaster response, blending theoretical and practical applications. It should interest practitioners and students of organizational resilience at advanced levels as it will bind together the various complementary disciplines necessary to become resilient into a single holistic approach. The webinar will aim to develop insights and discussion about how to match the needs of security and risk to the requirements of business continuity and impact management; and to identify the intuitive and learned skills to anticipate, respond to and recover from the many unwanted issues that can arise and threaten organizational capability.
It will be set in the context of a dynamic, changing world where new threats such as embedded terrorism, social media risk generation, food and logistics security, environmental issues, governance and legislation (as examples) can affect resilience significantly. Many of us look at single elements – this will combine many complementary and potentially conflicting elements in a single analysis and discussion.

Well-known writer and presenter Nathaniel Forbes MBCI offers three simple steps to help you give more persuasive presentations.
Whether you’re pitching business continuity management to the C-suite, pleading for your department’s headcount or reporting post-exercise successes, you can move your audience to action with these three steps to a persuasive presentation.
1.Develop a ‘story’.
The human brain has been wired for story since our ancestors drew on cave walls. Every disaster, every invocation, every successful recovery reveals stories of sacrifice, personal resilience and individual initiative. Behind the facts, there’s a story in your presentation, too – one your audience will remember.
2.Make an emotional connection.
People may forget what you said, they may forget what you did, but they’ll never forget how you made them feel. To move people to action - to make them care about business continuity - you must reach for their feelings. Gently…but intentionally.
It’s impossible for anyone to read and listen at the same time. Speaking over text bullets on a screen behind you is distracting and confusing to the audience. Instead, choose powerful images that make your point and support your story. The best ones are often the photographs you take yourself.
You’ve likely already heard, and seen first-hand, the link between sleep deprivation and workplace accidents. You probably recognise the signs of extreme tiredness (yawning, restlessness, head nodding, poor concentration, etc.) and know which policies and procedures are in place to address employees operating while tired. Yet we consistently see employees who are fatigued continue to operate, creating significant risks to themselves and others.
Join Jenny Krasny as she exposes the truth about the stigma of fatigue and discusses how you could be inadvertently reinforcing a culture of shame in your workplace.
Walk away from this webinar equipped with knowledge about fatigue risk, an understanding of how to assess your fatigue culture and some basic tools to make a positive difference.
• To appreciate your own perspectives on fatigue and impact this has on the culture in your workplace
• To equip you with some basic tools to gain awareness about the impacts of fatigue in your organisation

Dealing with what most businesses would classify as emergencies or serious incidents on a regular basis, the Armed Forces and emergency services have a high degree of built-in resilience, being primarily structured for contingencies. Having moved into business continuity after serving 10 years in the British Army Intelligence Corps, Laura Mazzara shares some of the key lessons she has identified from her Army experiences, and how they can be applied to business continuity. Charlie Maclean-Bristol will consider these lessons from a training perspective and how they can be practically applied to BC training.
One of the critical success factors for any BCM programme is competent people to undertake all the BC roles that the programme requires. This webinar will explain how to plan a campaign of training and awareness to ensure that everyone who has a role in the programme knows what their role is and has the appropriate knowledge and skills to undertake their role.
Joe España, Executive Consultant and Coach | Managing Director Performance Equations
Employee Engagement is a topic which is now well understood as being a significant factor in organisational results, not least because the way employees feel about their company and how aligned they are to their organisations vision, values and aspirations has a direct relevance to their performance contribution. Despite the range of strategies and approaches applied, however, the level of employee engagement in the UK has not budged beyond about a third of the workforce who consider themselves fully engaged.
In this webinar we will explore what are the macro conditions that need to exist to help boost employee engagement, and what are the micro drivers that enable employees to feel engaged.
This webinar aims to answer two questions:
•Where does employee engagement really live in an organisation?
•What can managers actually do about it?

Few people actually calculate the true cost of bad meetings, in fact, the Harvard Business Review discovered:
- 15% of an organization's time is spent in meetings
- 67% of meetings are rated as ineffective
- 92% of people multitask in meetings
- $32 Billion dollars is wasted in bad meetings
The reality is, meetings are still a crucial part of running an effective business. The value of effective meetings saves companies an average $2,600 per employee per year.
In this webinar, you'll learn how to save time + money through the power of Integrated Meetings, we'll show you a process we've taken over 15+ years of research to perfect and refine meetings that you can apply immediately in your company and with your team.

The latest research shows that HR and Talent staff are struggling to deliver the reports to support their business colleagues.

Join this webinar where our experts will help you understand why this happens. Then see a completely new way of working with data and reporting, to solve these foundational issues and deliver analytics from your existing data.
We will show you a reverse of the traditional ‘dashboarding system’ where the system finds insight through intelligence to uncover what’s important and relevant for you…and best of all, it delivers the findings in English.

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) is federal law that regulates employer-sponsored health and welfare plans. While the law is complex, the government agencies tasked with enforcing its provisions ensure complete compliance through the use of intensive plan investigations and the administration of significant financial penalties. An ERISA gap assessment can serve as a plan sponsor’s first line of defense against the costly and burdensome consequences of non-compliance, and can provide the added benefit of optimal plan administration.
This presentation will cover the nuts and bolts of ERISA, how and when to conduct a gap assessment, and how to address areas of compliance weakness.

While most parents would be delighted if their offspring wanted to become an accountant, lawyer or even an actuary, they may be less encouraging if their son or daughter said they wanted to be a hacker. This is the negative manifestation of working in the cyber security industry that is often portrayed in the media. The reality is very different, with careers in cyber security providing fantastic opportunities that are hugely varied, really challenging and help to do good for society.
Structured career paths provide an opportunity to progress quickly with jobs in large audit and accountancy firms through to small specialist boutique start-ups, as well as the chance for international work and creating new businesses. In addition, the whole industry is very diverse and is looking for people with a very wide range of talents.
The problem is how do we communicate this to people who may be interested in the industry? Just as important for young people, how do we get to the influencers; their parents and their careers advisors to understand what an exciting place the cyber security industry is to work in and what they can expect in terms of the types of company they could work for and their salary expectations.
The problem can be partially solved through education, information and support from businesses working together with a consistent message designed to encourage the very best people into the industry.
In this presentation, Ian Glover from CREST will look at the challenges of attracting the brightest young people into careers that traditionally have an image problem and providing a strong career path once they are in. In particular, he will focus on the importance of properly-run internships and Government funded initiatives to educate and inform.
