One of the ways that B2E Consulting has adapted to these unprecedented times we find ourselves in is the provision of free virtual webinars to help our Consulting Community to stay connected, develop and to share knowledge.
Since April we have hosted 23 webinars covering a range of topics and we have been joined by over 500 consultants and clients! We kicked off with a digest of the government support available to consultants with Ian Busby. The next 3 webinars from Hugh Abbott focused on how to optimise your ability to find a new assignment, using LinkedIn, a methodology and a focus on reviewing your CV. We enjoyed a trilogy of webinars from Simon Rickman on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Home Working. Next up was a fascinating session on AI from Marina Borozna; and Richard Samworth followed up with a session on Sustainability in Project Management. Over June we enjoyed a Data and Analytics webinar from Simon Berkeley, looked at Blockchain with Aruna Koya and Nathan Allchin led a session on Target Operating Models. We completed our summer with sessions from B2E Principals – Ian Busby (on Organisation Design), Stephen Green (on Procurement), Smriti Singh (on Digital solutions for the NHS), Hugh Abbott and team (RPA) and a session on designing an exponential organisation with Tony Manley. Our Autumn schedule included the return of ever-popular Simon Rickman with his 7 Habits of Resilience; Sacha Visram’s journey in starting a mobile phone network; a very information session on Libor with John Martin; a chatbots demonstration from Liam Ryan; and were introduced to TRIZ by Ketan Varia. Our last session of October was a very important session on working from home cyber-securely with Dr John McCarthy.
Many thanks to these B2E Principals, Alumni and other B2E friends for sharing their experience and case studies with our community.
We’re finalising our schedule of webinars to take us through to the end of the year and our next set are available to book now.
