Seminar before THE networking lunch 

Disability Confidence?  Get it and grow it at this seminar.

You and your business could be missing out on diverse talents, creativity and sustainable growth with insights into a fast growing customer demographic*

For some time we, that is Chris Catt of The Life Coach Station and Belinda Newton from The HR Dept, were aware that a more joined approach around resolving issues with disability in the workplace is needed.

This seminar brings together much of Chris’ practical solution focused approach based on 20 years of helping employers with their disability in the workplace issues and his own personal experiences with disability and Belinda’s HR knowledge, insight on employment legislation and practical experience of helping employers find solutions to their staffing issues, into a unique double act.

We believe that most employers lack ‘Confidence with Disability‘, which is backed up by the Government’s drive to see more employers becoming ‘Disability Confident’.

Who Should Attend this seminar?
Anyone who is an employer regardless of the size of business. The seminar has been created to provide answers you may have, you may hope other people will ask, but you would still like to know.

What Will You Get from attending this seminar?
1) An overview of the legislation around disability in the workplace explained – what you need to know.
2) The opportunity to look at real life situations which often affect everyone.
3) An opportunity to discuss specific issues in your workplace at a 1-2-1 at the end of the seminar.

Learn how your business can benefit like Ernst & Young, McDonalds, Rank and IMG Productions

That’s just the seminar!  Coffee and networking from 10am and seminar starts at 10.30am(optional,always rewarding, included in the price and a great networking opportunity!)

What follows can only be the icing on the cake!

It’s THE networking lunch – a proven way of growing and building your network

Pre lunch drinks and informal networking from 11.45am. Sit down for 2 course lunch with coffee at 12.30pm.

You sit down for 2 course served lunch (bread rolls, main course and dessert with coffee), no buffet here – conversation – not queuing is key!

You will sit on a table with 7 or 8 other decision makers – none of whom do what you do – a table host will ensure that each person gets at least 3 minutes to introduce themselves and their business and the benefits that it brings to others.   A great catalyst for questions that lead to the all important conversations that generate the connections and collaborations – sharing knowledge, advice, tips, expertise in a relaxed and comfortable environment.

From 1.30pm – table to table networking. Your opportunity to go and talk to someone else in the room (the seating plan in your event programme will help you locate them), continue your conversation or start a new one with someone else on your table. As a member at subsequent events you will be sat with different people – unique to Business Network events!

The guest speaker will enlighten, entertain and educate for 10 minutes and the event finishes at 2pm – all you need to do is follow up


Cost of event for visitors is £36.00 (Inc. VAT) covering seminar, coffee, 2 course served lunch with drinks – wine available, event programme, delegate list, dietary requirements are catered for.
