Wed 28 May 2014: What More Can There Be? A thought-provoking presentation by Dave Bradley

'What more can there be?’
A thought provoking keynote presentation from Dave Bradley
Based on his blogsite  www.whatmorecantherebe.blogspot.co.uk
Create great opportunities to achieve more with your business.

Several years after introducing a management team to this concept Dave revisited the CEO to find this question written large and permanent on a white board in his office.   It was there as a constant reminder that there can always be more.

Too often we find ourselves  hunkered down in red tape, paralysed by the status quo, unable to think about anything other than preserving as much as possible of what we already have.

Now is the time to think differently and creatively about what can be achieved.  Remarkably many of the constraints to achieving more are self- imposed.  When ‘it’s the way we do things around here’ is the unspoken mantra. Or ‘they’ (whoever they are) wouldn’t like it if we changed. Then you need to open yourself to the possibility, just the possibility, that there can be more.
·       Open your mind  to the possibility that there can be  even more
·       Find Inspiration to become actively involved in finding improvement
·       Recognise that what you may have been doing for many years might now not be the best way
·       Stop doing the things which don’t count
·       5 ways to achieve more
Dave refers to his audience as participants. This is not a passive presentation but designed to get people involved and engaged. Using multimedia and a range of highly interactive techniques ensures participants have been entertained whil

Their ground breaking work in developing speaking and listening skills in schools is now completely integrated into the fabric of UK education.
