The inaugural Manor Royal People Conference was held in October 2018 and deemed a big success by those involved. Created by Prowse & Co. on behalf of Manor Royal BID, the event appealed to companies of all sizes from across the West Sussex business district adjacent to Gatwick Airport.
The event was fully booked and attracted more than 90 business people and HR professionals who heard the latest thinking and research on people matters. Developed from the popular Manor Royal BID quarterly People Forums, this event was created to provide a concentrated focus on 'People Matters' including recruitment, staff motivation and retention, and leadership. A concentrated burst of four hours FREE learning with lunch.
The event was chaired by Zoe Wright, Group Director of People at the B&CE Group and featured Dr. Robert Coles, CEO of the world-renowned Roffey Park Institute, who inspired the audience during his presentation on the topic of Collaborate Leadership.
He was joined by Joshua French, Lead Consultant at Bailey and French who spoke about Empowering People in the Workplace and Gary Peters, CEO of LovelocalJobs.com who talked about Motivating the Millennial Generation.
Joshua French said following the event: "It was fantastic to be part of the Manor Royal People Conference and share our perspectives on how positive psychology can help us motivate and empower our teams. The Q&A panel discussion with the other speakers was particularly thought-provoking and valuable."
Organised by Prowse & Co on behalf of the Manor Royal BID, the event venue was kindly hosted by the Sandman Signature Hotel in Crawley.
