Nottingham Professional Services set to get businesses talking

Nottingham’s professional sector networking group (NPS) is set to host an exclusive event looking at how those in business can better communicate with each other.

“Let’s talk business” will look at how to get the very best from your communications and the impact the technological and digital revolution has had on the way most people communicate.

The event, which is at the offices of Potter Clarkson at 7.45am on Thursday 28th of April, will look at the ability to ask intelligent, relevant questions and how to create a listening mindset that enables you to probe clients and prospects.

The session will be interactive, with guests having the opportunity to practice a range of skills to help them learn how to better connect with other people in business.

Running proceedings will be Paul Richmond, managing director of theGrogroup, a specialist provider of learning and development programmes for professional services firms. Richmond has over 30 years of experience in business having trained at KPMG and then developed a national consulting firm that focuses on performance.

He has delivered partner, leadership and business development programmes for many firms including ShakespeareMartineau, Baker Tilly, Moore Stephens and the award-winning L&D Academy at RSM Tenon. Paul delivers a number of the courses in the ICAEW’s Academy of Professional Development, including leading the Managing Partners Programme.

Kate Hennig of theGrogroup and NPS said: “A lot of the ‘dialogue’ between professional and client is now often driven electronically, meaning that basic conversational skills can be under-practiced and therefore under-developed.

“The traditional career development route for professionals can also limit the effectiveness of client conversations. Specialisms and practice area working structures ensure that professionals develop ‘deep’ wells of knowledge in their chosen fields, markets or sectors. This means that many people only have the confidence to engage in conversation focused on those specific areas with a fear of being ‘caught-out’ or exposed in a general business conversation. This event will help to instil confidence and develop new communication skills to break these barriers.”
