Whether you are taking on a new role as a manager, managing a new team, or want to discuss management topics, this month’s meeting is all about the basics of management that we don’t learn in school.
This workshop, facilitated by Clifford Marker CMgr FCMI, will work to amalgamate experience from the room with Clifford’s personal experience from his nearly 30 years of management experience.
Clifford will lead the discussion of management techniques in developing a high performing team. Exploring topics to develop new managers confidence and team leadership skills. Techniques will be based on referenced academia research viewed through the lens of experiences from Clifford and other managers in attendance.
Clifford has worked his way up from the ground starting as a field engineer when he left the Army to managing complex projects for Marconi, Balfour Beatty, London Underground and NG Bailey to name a few.
