Wednesday Webinars programme

One of the ways that B2E Consulting has adapted to lockdown and social distancing 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 17 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.  Last month saw 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, my personal pick of the crop, a session on designing an exponential organisation with Tony Manley.

Many thanks to these B2E Principals, Alumni and other B2E friends for sharing their experience and case studies with our community.

We’ve had a little break over August but due to the popularity of this programme of free #WednesdayWebinars, these are set to continue into the second half of the year.
