Event of the Month
Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14 by many people throughout the world. It is the day on which partners, married couples, boyfriends and girlfriends express their love and affection for each other.
Traditionally, this has been by posting Valentine’s cards, presenting flowers, or offering confectionery.
However, although many still do that, many millions now use the internet – sending messages via social media and sending e-cards – or text affectionate messages using their mobile phones.

New Career Development Pathways
Change Management specialist.
Due to the recognition that organisational change is – as was forecast by gurus such as Kotter and Porter – now constant and permanent, many leading organisations are creating “change management” departments, and are seeking “change management” professionals to work in and Manage those departments – or appointing “change Management” Directors to their Executive Manager teams and/or boards.
These roles include responsibility for planning and implementing responses to change events, but also the coaching and mentoring of senior and operational managers to equip them to be able to effectively respond to change in their areas.
It’s an exciting prospect – being directly involved in managing the changes which organisations must successfully respond to in order to continue to be successful.
We offer a range of relevant courses which may be of interest to you – information on which can be found at:
