Described – almost before it had finished – on Twitter by one attendee as “excellent discussions, networking and thought-provoking keynote sessions at the BAFTA headquarters today”, we’re hugely proud to day that the ASK/MDA Breakfast Briefing was as glittering as its surroundings.
With over 100 people in attendance, the thought-provoking keynote sessions were delivered by Dave Roycroft, Global People Development Consultant at Invesco Ltd (who shared a platform with ASK’s Elaine Wilson, highlighting the success of the company’s Investment Leadership Program and the role of ASK’s tASK simulation), and Pat Taylor of the National Audit Office, who outlined the progress of NAO’s Direct Programme, where the organisation has partnered with an ASK Project team led by Naysan Firoozmand to design and deliver a comprehensive assessment and development programme to identify, select and develop staff within the company with the greatest potential to be promoted to Director within 24 months.
The keynote sessions were followed by breakout sessions, led by consultants from both ASK and MDA:
- Talent Management – Matt Evans
- Executive Coaching – Chris Rogers
- tASK (ASK’s unique business simulation methodology) – Elaine Wilson
- Learning Transfer and Application – Robert Terry
- Executive Assessment – Scott Nelson and Jason Ortmeier
- Change – Dr Anton Franckeiss
We’ve added a photo gallery that captures just some of the moments from the morning’s events, but we’d very much welcome the feedback of those that attended – please just add a comment to this post to let us know elements of the sessions you valued the most.
