Managing teams, successfully
Eventbrite.co.uk
1pm - 5pm


Our 1/2-day training module provides new and developing managers with relevant knowledge and skills to manage themselves and their team in the real world.  We also consider the 'voice of experience' and some 'tricks of the trade'.

You will be able to immediately improve your approach and performance as a manager. You will feel more informed and able to do your job. The likelihood of you making avoidable mistakes decreases.

Thus you will feel more knowledgeable, able and confident.  Your business and team will be more confident, efficient and effective. 

The module covers:
a. The relativity of management and leadership
b. The benefits of process, and some process tools to implement immediately
c. Common management tools (and how to use them), including elements of project management and time management
d. Key management techniques and some relevant leadership tricks - that can be implemented immediately 

2 quick promises:
1. The module is not a case of ‘death by PowerPoint’. There is interactive activity, and skills are taught using things other than a computer.
2. Although oriented towards people in commercial organisations, the content is generic in nature so it should be applicable to people from many walks of life.

They feature a melancholic dreamy soundscape, unique vocals and a clean cut songwriting style. Lyrically abstract the band have a passionate and audio-visually stimulating live show. Frontman, Toby Ijbema’s songwriting hits roaring lights and soothing lows with help from the most dynamic and ‘laid back’ rhythm sections, Ale and Bin.

JOY will play with your emotions and blow your mind.+ MOTHwww.facebook.com/qyjrecordsMoths comprise a group of insects related to butterflies, belonging to the order Lepidoptera.

Pencil To Paint: Feb - Mar 2018
Eventbrite.co.uk
21st February - 28th March


“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
Topics will include:
Mark-making
Line, measurement and proportion
Perspective
Tonal value
Notān
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
