Join us on Thursday 19th May at 8:30am for an event led by Mike Raven, Principal Project Manager at East Riding Council and recipient of the G4C Mentor of the Year award. Mike will offer his wealth of knowledge around communication and leadership, including how to improve your self-awareness and understanding of those around you.

The session will help you identify your own personality type, cover different styles of leadership, and help you communicate with impact.

Communication is not just about talking, and leadership is not just about taking charge and doing everything yourself – there’s so much more to think about. It’s about awareness, being adaptable, and creating strong relationships.

This event will equip you with the skills for powerful communication, with take-aways that will enable you to lead the way in personal and professional situations that require you to influence.
