International Coaching Week runs 19 to 24 May & it's a global first for York!

on Friday, 16 May 2014. Posted in News, Promotions, Events

International Coaching Week (ICW) in May is set to make a big impact in York this year thanks to the vision of Bernadette Cass of Coaching York who is passionate about coaching and what it can help people achieve.

ICW is a global event now in its 10th Year but this will be York’s first opportunity to participate and invite the whole community to experience the potential benefits of coaching. Continues Bernadette “it is all about unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their own performance in whichever area of their lives they feel challenged. Coaching encourages self–learning and enables people to make good decisions for themselves, often focused on specific goals.”

“This is an extraordinary opportunity and as far as I am aware York is the first city in the world to be planning a city-wide event”, says Bernadette who is the force behind organising the week of events.

What we are aiming to achieve during International Coaching Week is to bring coaching and its benefits to the people of York.  We are offering coaching taster sessions to members of the public, businesses and council staff, as well as holding professional development events for coaches.

Launching on Monday 19th May at the City of York Council offices, local leaders from a number of organisations including the NHS Leadership Team at York District Hospital, community group ‘Each One Teach One’, York St John University, City of York Council and Aviva will kick off the week by speaking about the benefits of coaching in their organisations.  Local MP Hugh Bayley will also be speaking.

Running in tandem are planned coaching sessions running through the week at the Council Offices and York Central Library from Monday to Saturday. A group of experienced, professional coaches are offering a number of free ‘speed coaching’ sessions.

Through running a week long programme of coaching, talks and events Coaching York hope to celebrate coaching and bring its benefits to as many local people as they can.

All events are free, pre bookable and ticketed.

!! MASSIVE APOLOGY FROM MADE IN LEEDS !!

on Friday, 16 May 2014. Posted in News, Promotions, Events

Just realised we had incorrectly set the Made in LEEDS Pay As You Attend ticket cost at £10 rather than £5!

Everyone who booked at £10 has already been refunded and will re-book at the lower price.

Now corrected hopefully we can still get enough people booked on for 22 May if not we will just postpone until 5 June.

Please help spread the word and here’s the link to book:

Serious about business networking in YORK or LEEDS?

on Wednesday, 14 May 2014. Posted in News, Promotions, Events

There is certainly no shortage of networking groups to choose from and events to attend but if you are looking for the single most beneficial business networking group for you and your company here’s a top tip: STOP LOOKING!

We are all different as people. Gender, age, interests, knowledge, experience, industry sector, blue collar, white collar, introvert, extrovert so how can any ONE group ever be your perfect fit. And even if that were possible are your key prospects likely to be attending that very same group too?

I am writing this after I had the pleasure of attending a nationwide business networking group event yesterday and found their format to be welcoming, engaging AND potentially rewarding from a business perspective after my first visit.

So my advice is to take a look at as many business networking groups as possible and if you have the chance to attend another group’s event view that as a great opportunity to get a real insight of how that particular group operates by speaking to the members.

The most successful business networking groups have a supportive and diverse membership consisting of members that attend events because they want to be there. If a business networking group can achieve that level of respect growth becomes organic which is absolutely critical. It ensures longevity and through growth creates more business development opportunities from within.

Find a group or two or three like that and you’re on to a winner.

Made in YORK and Made in LEEDS members get a FREE marketing tool that works.

on Wednesday, 14 May 2014. Posted in News, Promotions, Events

A marketing tool that will help grow your business organically. That will spread the name of you and your business to more prospects and clients than you could ever imagine. Welcome to The Made in YORK and The Made in LEEDS Daily online newspapers.

The whole concept is simplicity itself.

The content of each Made in YORK edition is made up from the tweets of YO post coded businesses. The content of each Made in LEEDS edition is made up from the tweets of LS post coded businesses.

We publish several times every day with different content on Twitter, Linkedin and Facebook .

LEEDS example: https://paper.li/LeedsNetworking/1399616893

YORK example: https://paper.li/MadeinYORK/1400009817

Because our newspapers’ content is captured from Twitter we benefit from a massive number of retweets getting your name and your business to literally 1000’s and 1000’s of new names and potential prospects.

To get your tweets launched to 1000’s all we need is your Twitter address and that’s it. Just carry on tweeting as normal. All we ask is that you retweet the newspaper when it lands. Now you can begin to imagine how many people could be reading your posts!

We have launched the concept with paid members of Made in YORK and Made in LEEDS but as a gesture we have temporarily included some other local businesses to widen awareness and encourage the growth of our informal business networking groups.

As founder and group manager I am also happy to answer any questions you may have personally and certainly if you want to join Made in YORK or Made in LEEDS please get in touch so I can arrange that as well. Thank you.

Regards
