Our next Firestarter Forum is all about the people - coping with all the challenges of managing a team at this difficult time.
Join us on Thursday, May 14th at 9.15am
As we move into a new phase of the unprecedented crisis that we are all facing, our thoughts are beginning to turn to how businesses can prepare for life after Coronavirus and ensure they come back stronger than ever in a world that will undoubtedly look very different than before.
Over the coming weeks, we will be hosting a series of interactive digital workshops where, in conjunction with our specialist partners, we will address a range of essential issues that business leaders will be facing as they develop their lockdown exit strategies. In each workshop we will provide insight and advice from our expert speakers, but will also give participants the opportunity to share experiences and best practice in dealing with the inevitable leadership challenges and difficult decisions that will need to be made over the coming weeks.
The next Firestarter Forum will be held on
Thursday May 14th at 9.15am.
This session will focus on coping with all the challenges of managing a team at this difficult time. We will look at issues such as managing remote workforces, employee engagement, motivation and mental health. We’ll also discuss how you can demonstrate good leadership for your people, both during this crisis and after, when we start to return to a ‘new normal’.

Upcoming Firestarter Forums
- 14th May 2020 – It’s all about the people – coping with all the challenges of managing a team at this difficult time.
- 21st May 2020 – When can I start planning with confidence? – building a meaningful financial plan for the next couple of years.
- 28th May 2020 – Workplace, what workplace? – will it ever be the same again?
Due to the initial success of the Firestarter Forums, we want to expand and develop them to help as many people as we can – using the technology available to us to break down traditional boundaries. In this series, we will host at least 5 sessions that are already planned, but we want them to be your Firestarter Forums, with themes, content and speakers that are really pertinent to this audience.
We are going to run some follow up Firestarter Friends’ Workshops for smaller groups after each Forum, giving participants the opportunity to address key topics and issues raised in more detail each week.
There will also be the opportunity to become friends and share ideas with a preferred group of people in our Firestarter Snugs. There’s no real agenda for these snugs, just a chance to share thoughts and challenges on a regular basis – what happens in the snug stays in the snug!
This all then leads us to the Firestarter Academy, which we will be launching in the next few weeks where you can learn valuable skills and techniques on topics such as sales skills, business planning, communications tactics, leadership, organisational structure, recruitment and more.
Finally, we will host some dedicated follow-up workshops with our expert speakers to cover some of the topics raised in more detail. To start with, Lisa Zevi from Real Business Builders (our expert speaker from the first Forum on how ‘it’s tough at the top.’) has offered two workshops:
Opportunities passing you by?
Get out of the day to day so you can focus on growth.
Looking to exit your business?
How to build a management team to take your business forward.
If you are interested in taking part in any of these workshops, please let us know by completing the form opposite and we will be in touch to set things up.
We’d love to make this a movement – so keep coming and ‘spread the word’.
