How to find the hidden talent in your Business - BANES
Eventbrite.co.uk
7:45am - 10am


Results of our 2017 Business Skills and Training Survey showed that 68.5% of businesses blamed vacancies being hard to fill on not having enough applicants with the relevant skills and qualifications, and 55.8% said a skills shortage in their business led to an increase in work for other staff.
As an SME, what if you could build talent through your existing workforce – wouldn’t that make more sense?
Talent management is an effective way to do this. You can utilise your best asset – your people; developing internal resource, ensuring business continuity and fostering positive engagement as a result.
Join us at our workshop on Talent Management to explore:

How to identify key roles and critical positions in your business
How to reduce costs of recruitment and boost growth and productivity
The benefits of developing your workforce to support retention
How apprenticeships can be used to boost your staff’s skills and the funding available

Victoria Chidgey and Rachel Pook from Atoll HR will be sharing their insights into the topics above and attendees will learn new skills through real life case studies and practical activities. This event is perfect for SMEs who don’t currently have a development plan, struggle to recruit or retain staff and want to reduce the cost of recruitment.
Don’t delay in booking your space – we expect spaces to run out fast!
We look forward to seeing you there.
Please note: This event is for West of England (Bristol, Bath & North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire & North Somerset)businesses only.

Critical Research in the Global Politics of Hope
Social & Policy Sciences
University of Bath

Our aims are first to identify the global power dynamics of systems for scholarly writing and publication, to name key dimensions of this power, and recognise their enactment in writing practice: How do we position ourselves in relation to dominant structures and cultures of knowledge production? How do we deal with these in our environments? Second, we will consider the context of academic publishing and writing (globally and in your location), identify some of the challenges of writing within and beyond the scientific world system and explore what are the existing ‘resources of hope and possibility’ in writing practice: How can we stay true to, and communicate, the principles of critical theories and methodologies when publishing new ideas in our academic and political contexts? How do we recognise, nourish and expand resources of possibility and hope in our and others’ writing within these environments? Finally, we will discuss some strategies for communicating and publishing our ideas across borders. How do we communicate new ideas at and across epistemological and geographic borders? How do we practice, defend and create conditions for the flourishing of plurality in writing?
ALL WELCOME!
This talk is based on a BA sponsored Writing Workshop that we run at the Benemérita University of Puebla, Mexico, in September 2018: Writing for another world. More information, please see https://writingforanotherworld.wordpress.com

Community Business Clinic
Eventbrite.com
1:30pm - 3:30pm



Asking for help can sometimes be the hardest thing to ask but we all need it. So we are opening an Community Business Clinic from now up until the end of the year.





You'll be putting us on the spot, no rehearsed responses to your questions and as a team we can work through your problems. This is a great way to network as well as giving and taking advice.

Spectrum Marketing Solutions work with small businesses all the time, it's what we do day in and day out. We work with planning and business administration, developing systems, putting together marketing plans and provide sales support.





The group is intended to be public but closed, no gossip. We want all our members to work as a team and to have a little empathy. There is no such thing as a stupid question so come along, have a cup of tea or coffee and let's get your business back on your feet.

We do charge £10.00 for this event simply becuase there is costs behind it and will go towards the Tea and Coffee. £10 is not a lot for 2 hours of networking and free advice. If you are in trouble and serious about getting your business back on track this is a major investment.

Assistive and Enabling Technologies: Past, Present and Future
Eventbrite.co.uk
6:30pm - 9pm


From Post-it notes to sat navs; we use assistive technologies every day, to make our lives easier.
For those with long term disabilities and health problems, they can enable people to live independent, fulfilled lives.
We would love to welcome you along to our 50th Annual Lecture with talks from Professor Roger Orpwood, Professor Nigel Harris and Professor Praminda Caleb-Solly.
Designability (formerly Bath Institute of Medical Engineering) has been at the forefront of development of assistive technologies for 50 years.
A pioneer of user centered design
From the 1990s, Roger Orpwood was one of the pioneers of user centred design techniques for people with disabilities. Working with the team, he established the charity as the world leader in the development of early years powered mobility and the development of technology to support people living with dementia and their carers.
Roger will be joining us to share some of the interesting insights and experiences that he gained from this work.
Translating research into exciting new technology
Over the last few years, there has been some change in perceptions of assistive technology and there is now less of a stigma associated with its use. In part, this has been due to recognition of the importance of aesthetics and better marketing of the technology, which is has resulted in an emerging mainstream retail market.
Nigel Harris has overseen the translation of research into new technologies through to new products, which has established Designability as the UK’s most successful independent developer of products to support people living with dementia. He will outline some of challenges and barriers to full adoption and acceptance of assistive technology.
Caring for an ageing population with some help from robotics
We have an ageing population and over the next decade there will be more people living with disabilities than ever before. Advances in digital technologies and robotics, coupled with a growing consumer market for these technologies, offer significant potential for new products and services that will enable people to live safe, independent lives. However, there are unresolved questions about over reliance on these technologies and the loss of human social contact. Praminda Caleb-Solly leads a joint Designability – University of West of England research programme that is exploring the development and application of these new technologies. Praminda will give us a vision of the future applications and opportunities for these new digital technologies.

Badminton (Bristol)
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
8pm - 9pm


Hi,

Badminton is booked for 8:00pm on Thursday [TBC] (Main Hall court [TBC]) at Kingsdown Sports Centre, Portland Street, BS2 8HL. All are welcome, it's a 60 minute long session and we may head to a nearby pub afterwards.

Please let me know if you are going to attend by Wednesday at the latest. I would prefer that we have at least 4 players, otherwise I may cancel the booking.

Note: When arriving at reception you will need to say that you're attending a badminton session in my name (Matthew Barker). Also, they may require that you to sign up for a (free) Everyone Active membership.

See you there,
Matt ([masked])

FAQ

Q: How does it work?
A: It's pretty informal, but I would like to know in advance if you are going to attend. (If, by the day before the booking, fewer than 4 people say they are going, I may cancel the booking.) On the day, just turn up in the sports hall with your kit at the booked time and we'll play as many games as we can in the time, rotating through the available players after each one. Usually we play doubles up to 11 points, but this can vary depending on the number of players. Afterwards, we often go to a nearby pub afterwards for a drink and a chat.

Q: How often do you play?
A: Usually every two weeks.

Q: How much does it cost?
A: Between £1 and £5 per session, depending on how many people turn up, but usually between £1.50 and £2.50.

Q: What is the standard of play?
A: This is hard to specify, but it's mixed and generally not high, so a novice shouldn't find it too challenging.

Q: How many courts are booked?
A: Only one court is booked, but if there are more than 4 people we play to 11 points (rather than the usual 21) to allow waiting players to get a game more often.

Q: Who can attend?
A: It is open to all (and usually has a combination of men and women). Come along and see if it suits you.

Q: I'm new to the group, how can I find you?
A: Sometimes the expected court number will be specified in advance, otherwise if you don't fancy asking around, you can let me know you'll be coming and I can arrange to meet you.

Q: What parking facilities are there?
A: The sports centre has its own car parks and there is usually on-street parking nearby. There are also bicycle stands outside the entrance.

Q: Can I just turn up for the pub afterwards?
A: Of course, though we don't always go and the choice of pub can vary so it's best to let me know in advance.

Q: Do I need my own racquet?
A: Preferably, though you can hire one from the sports centre (currently for £2 with £5 deposit). For newcomers, I can sometimes bring a spare on request.

Q: What type of shuttles are used?
A: Feather shuttles are provided and included in the session cost.

Q: What rules do you play with?
A: We usually play using 'rally point scoring', i.e. points are scored regardless of who serves, and when the serving side loses a rally, the serve changes immediately to the opponents. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badminton#Scoring_system_and_service.

Pencil To Paint: Sep - Dec 2018
Eventbrite.co.uk
26th September - 5th December


“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. 
The theme for this particular 10 week Pencil To Paint course will be 'still life' and we will look at how artists from Caravaggio to Cezanne used tonality, form and colour to compose their paintings.
Topics will include:
Mark-making
Line, measurement and proportion
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
Wednesdays:  26 September; 03, 10, 17, 24 ,October; 07, 14, 21, 28 November; 05 December  - 10 x 1.5 hour sessions)
