We’ve been helping clients develop their people for over 15 years and we love every minute of it. Now we’ve found a great way to help even more with IMPACT: Insights Measuring Performance and Accountability in Coaching and Training.

Join us for our next Talent Night and find out how?

When: Wednesday, October 11th, 6.30-8.30pm
Where: MediaCom, London

  • Talent Night events are free.
  • But places are strictly limited so you must book.
  • And our Talent Night events always kick off with a glass of something nice, accompanied by some nibbles.

Your training and coaching initiatives have an impact every day – but how do you prove that?

You have a great new training programme in place, or you’re organising some top notch coaching for your senior people, but… you don’t get round to measuring the impact on your business? Sound familiar?

Reasons range from the classic “no time” through to “yes, but how can I really prove it to my board?”

HR, training, talent acquisition & development practitioners know time is tight and resources are limited. But boards and budget holders increasingly demand measures that demonstrate both efficacy and financial benefit when developing your workforce.

  • Feedback forms and surveys provide you with some data.
  • Pre and post workshop assessments can fill in some of the gaps.
  • Tracking delivery against objectives, appraisals, 360s and other types of analysis all play their part.
  • But how do you create an IMPACT Dashboard that works for you? What to use, what to ignore? Getting the balance right beween devil and detail?

Bec Development Talent Nights involve lively conversations and high-value input from an expert – this time it’s from Bec Development MD and founder Helen Tiffany. Helen Tiffany has run more workshops, trained more talent and coached more leaders than you can shake a stick at. She has a post grad in Training and Development Strategy and specialises in developing people in management and leadership roles.

Hear from Helen. Get some ideas that you can start to put into practice starting the moment you get back into the office. This is also a chance for you to share your own experiences and insights with industry peers and do so while sipping a glass of something chilled… and probably fizzy.

Our event partners – Mediacom

The event is being hosted by Bec Development client and global media agency MediaCom.

Accreditation for Coaches – what you need to know

As demand for coaching continues to grow, so does the demand for coaching accreditation.

  • Buyers of coaching services – both individuals and organisations – seek verifiable ways of comparing and differentiating coaching providers.
  • Accreditation demonstrates that coaches have benchmarked themselves against high professional standards, and provides essential reassurance regarding levels of experience and capability.

So we are delighted to announce that Jeannette Marshall, Director of Accreditation at the Association for Coaches (AC), who accredit The Coach House – our coach training programme – and are one of the leading professional bodies for coaches and organisations, will  provide an insight into all things accreditation-related at our next Coach House event. Find out more about The Coach House, our accredited coach training programme.

Continued Professional Development (CPD) and Networking event – Tuesday, November 7th

This is an opportunity to find out more about (and demystify) the requirements for AC Accreditation and ask any questions. It’s a chance to understand:

  • what benefits accreditation will bring to you
  • what specifically you need to do
  • just how developmental accreditation can be!

When: Tuesday, November 7th – 6.30pm to 8.30pm
Where: We’re finalising details for a central London, easily accessible location*
*Our Coach House events are fun and popular so it makes sense to book your place as soon as possible. We’ll send you the exact location as soon as it’s finalised.

Maternity & Menopause

How is your organisation creating the change?

Each year millions of women in the UK begin asking themselves life-changing questions about their work and career paths because of one of the words above.

The conclusions they come to can profoundly influence what they earn, the roles they undertake and the way they work.

These conclusions also impact the organisations they work with.

  • These are big questions.
  • But is your organisation delivering big answers?
  • And if not, how much talent is being lost while we still wait for those answers?

Ask the questions – and help us answer them

The Bec Development M&M Debate takes a look at Maternity & Menopause with the aim of creating new thinking around both topics.

When: Date to be confirmed.
Where: Central London.

  • Starting a family – workplace attitudes have evolved but what’s missing from current thinking?
  • Is “menopause” the last HR taboo?
  • What should organisations being doing to prevent the female brain drain?
  • A panel of speakers with unique perspectives on the issues.
  • A chance to help shape the debate.

Ticket prices will be kept low but will include a donation to Barnardo’s.

The panel will include Helen Tiffany, MD of the Bec Development.

“I am currently going through the menopause and am very aware how it can impact on everything from energy levels to confidence. My conversations with a whole range of women at various stages in their careers make it very clear that many of this issues are also experienced by women starting families. Yet the debate about these topics seems to be extremely limited. We’d like to change that.”
