Workplace communications:

Does doing less really mean more?

Dave Moss of Wingman Ltd 

12:30 - 13:00 on 25 April 2019

Evidence suggests that across all sectors in the UK, workers are spending more of their time either talking with, writing to or meeting people than ever before.

Are our communication practices partially or wholly responsible for this?  Are we collectively distracting ourselves from doing our day jobs?  Do some practices lead to wasteful effort or are we all helpless victims of a communication Tsunami?

Empowering People

through Great Leadership

Julian Smallshaw of the Institute of Quarrying

12:30 - 13:00 on 30 August 2018

The UK quarrying industry is ahead of the game in many areas but over the years one segment of training has been neglected. We haven’t invested the necessary time and resources in developing future leaders. Not just at the top of the company but also in the all-important area of supervision. The realisation has now dawned and some companies have realised the worth in this area of study. In order to drive a business forward you need good leadership at all levels.

Empower people and reap the rewards.

Julian has been undertaking the development and promotion of world-class, tailored education and training programmes with the Institute of Quarrying since 2008, creating bespoke blended training packages for the extractives industry. Carrying with him a wealth of knowledge from his extensive career in operational quarry management and extractives operations, from hard rock to sand and gravel.
