Professional bodies, postgraduate and alumni networking event
Our long-standing relationships with industry and professional bodies enable us to ensure our courses reflect what is happening in the real-world, benefiting students with access to the latest research and regular networking opportunities.
The Brighton Business School, along with the CMI, ACCA, CIPD, CIM, CIMA, CII, IFA, IOD, SESCA and The Law Society are launching a twice yearly Networking event, the first of which will be hosted on Thursday, 17 November 2016.
The event will aim to encourage engagement and the sharing of information across multiple business sectors helping attendees to continue in their professional development and further their career prospects
The first event will be co-hosted by Brighton Business School and our accrediting body, the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). It will include a presentation by the CMI Director, Simon Bowen and a welcome talk by the Director of the Business School, Aidan Berry.
Simon joined the Chartered Management Institute in May 2015 as Director of Membership Engagement. Overseeing the membership experience, he is passionate at providing a relevant, rich and personal experience for our members, ensuring that through their membership they can continue to develop their personal, management and leadership skills to add real value to their organisation. Simon has 15 years’ experience working for three Chartered professional bodies – the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). His experience at RICS focussed on global membership development, from the establishment of local member assessments through to university accreditation and training.
Simon will be giving a presentation titled ‘Creating a true profession – people, purpose and potential’
Focusing on the key issues of management today and the impact of good management development, Simon will share CMI insights into how, by harnessing people, purpose and potential, leaders and managers can not only survive, but thrive.
“Managers are challenged with implicit concepts of controlling their environment towards the achievement of planned objectives, whilst grappling with increasing turbulence and volatility in their work, social and global environments. By applying good practice, embracing the unpredictable and building networks, managers can navigate these challenges and deliver real impact to organisational performance.”
The first of these events will be free of charge and open to all Masters Students and Alumni of Brighton Business School. To attend you will need to register your interest online by emailing Hazel Brown on H.F.Brown@brighton.ac.uk by Wednesday 9th November.
