Local Industrial Strategy Future of Mobility workshop
Eventbrite.co.uk
10am - 12pm


The Local Industrial Strategy sets out Grand Challenges to put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future, ensuring that the UK takes advantage of major global changes, improving people’s lives and the country’s productivity.
The Grand Challenges are focused on the global trends which will transform our future; one of these is future of mobility.
The Government is keen to become a world leader in shaping the future of mobility and are on the cusp of a profound change in how we move people, goods and services around our towns, cities and countryside. This is driven by extraordinary innovation in engineering, technology and business models.
The UK’s road and rail network could dramatically reduce carbon emissions and other pollutants, congestion could be reduced through higher-density use of road space enabled by automated vehicles, and mobility could be available when we want it, where we want it and how we want it.
Government is looking for opportunities to improve customers’ experience, drive efficiency and enable people to move around more freely.
The aim of this future of mobility workshop will be to share views, discuss opportunities and identify innovation in the West of England.

We will be providing a free shuttle bus from Bath Spa train station to The Edge between 9am and 9:45am.

Delegation training for managers
Eventbrite.co.uk
1pm - 5pm


Delegating can seem like a nightmare for new and developing managers – especially if it does not come naturally and there is significant expectation riding on the results.
This focussed, relevant and time-efficient course teaches new and developing managers how to delegate effectively at work.  
The course covers:
     !  The organisation and personal context in which delegation occurs 
     !  The practicalities of delegating – requirements, approaches, tools and techniques
     !  Personal communication – skills, appearance and pitfalls
     !  Getting the most out of your team and adapting as necessary

This course goes beyond basic lists of things to do and considers practical aspects to improve confidence and awareness. Content draws on a number of management and leadership disciplines to provide a complete package. Attendees will learn how to delegate effectively, so they can start to implement their newfound abilities the very next day, to improve efficiency and engagement within their team – and reduce stress, fear and wasted time for themselves.

The course will be led by Rob Hart, a qualified manager and leader with over 20 years’ experience in various cultures and situations. Rob started his career as an Army Officer, and since leaving the military in 2005 has worked as a United Nations official, as a contractor and consultant to Government, in business start-ups and with SMEs in the UK and abroad, in academia and in a large corporate professional services firm. Rob now shares his experience and lessons learned with others, to help them to be the best manager and leader that they can be.

People and energy – a relationship in transition by Louise Kingham OBE FEI, Chief Executive of the Energy Institute (EI)
Eventbrite.co.uk
4:30pm - 5:45pm


I-SEE Seminar
'People and energy – a relationship in transition'
Louise Kingham OBE FEI, Chief Executive of the Energy Institute (EI)
Abstract:    In the lexicon of energy we’re used to hearing about ‘big’ oil, the ‘big’ six, ‘giga’-watts, the ‘national’ grid. It’s the language of scale and historically, as individual users of energy, we’ve found ourselves on the periphery, ‘done to’ by dominant players in a centralised, global market.
But when you look closely at what’s happening in the energy system today you very quickly discover this relationship is being turned on its head. People could in future be the lead actors on a stage being radically reshaped by four parallel trends – decentralisation, democratisation, digitisation and decarbonisation. These are the four Ds of the modern energy age.
In this seminar, Louise Kingham will explore the changing relationship between people and energy, the tensions between costs and benefits, rights and responsibilities, local and global. She will set out her long term, optimistic view that advances in technology and human ingenuity, allied with changes in how we all live our lives, could yet avert the worst impacts of climate change at the same time as opening up access for more than a billion people in the world still living without electricity.
Biography:    Louise Kingham OBE FEI is Chief Executive of the Energy Institute (EI), the chartered membership body for professionals working across the global energy system, from conventional oil and gas to innovative energy efficiency and renewable technologies.
Louise has spent 25 years working with energy professionals around the world. Prior to her appointment as the head of the EI in 2003, Louise was Director General of the Institute of Petroleum and Chief Executive of the Institute of Energy. She is a Council member of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Energy Studies and a Board member of the POWERful Women initiative. She is a former President of the Energy Industries Club, Advisory member of the Energy Policy Board at the University of Birmingham and judge for HM Queen’s Prize for Higher and Further Education.
In 2006, she received a Global Leadership in Energy Award; in 2011 the OBE from HM Queen for services to the energy industry; and in 2017 she was awarded an Honorary Science Doctorate from the University of Bath.
I●SEE seminars are free and open for all to attend
You are welcome to join us for afternoon tea in the 'Wessex Restaurant', University of Bath from 16:00 to 16:25

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)
