TV mentalist, David Meade, provided an “inspiring” toolkit to help Coleraine’s business leaders last week.
Causeway Chamber of Commerce described his masterclass at the Lodge Hotel - labelled ‘Mind Your Business, Innovation in Action’ - as “very exciting, positive and energetic”.
In a fun and interactive seminar, Meade took delegates through an energetic session that inspired and engaged. Drawing from a range of top level management research, he demonstrated how some very simple techniques can be used in the workplace - or indeed at home - to improve decision making, communication, motivation, and problem solving. At the end of the session, delegates left with a sound toolkit that they can use to improve their own productivity, effectiveness, and efficiency.
One of those who attended was Gwyneth McQuiston, the manager of the Diamond Centre in Coleraine, who described the session as “fantastic fun and mind boggling.
Gwyneth added: “The masterclass started off in a humorous way and I have to say it never stopped – everyone in the room was laughing at his fast rapport, his quirky anecdotes, his focus on people he had singled out and of course he was laughing at us.
“An excellent workshop – we actually learned some valuable concepts to use in our everyday business life and I am delighted to say that I brought those very tools to a meeting I had the following morning and they worked – I got what I needed to get! The only bizarre thing about it - and only those who attended will understand what I am saying - but I had written Wayne Rooney down too!”
The Mayor of Coleraine, Councillor David Harding stated, “Council continues to work in partnership with the Causeway Chamber of Commerce, ensuring support for the business community within the Borough.
“Collaboration for this specialiSed workshop was a unique opportunity for the local businesses to take home practical business tips and advice. Supporting events such as these enables Council to demonstrate the commitment to long term prosperity in the Borough.”
Causeway Chamber of Commerce would like to thank Council who sponsored the workshop.
