Whitecap Consulting is delighted to be partnering with Freeths and Break for Growth on a series of events which are designed to help business leaders think differently about how to prepare for what now lies ahead over the coming months and years. Our involvement in these events is led by our Birmingham office, but they are available nationally to anyone who is interested.

Covid-19 has hit us all hard. Plans were falling into place, team structures well-suited to the business world we knew, employees felt secure, valued and contributing. It has all changed in a matter of months. Market projections now have no certainty, teams are the wrong size, often doing the wrong things, and people feel vulnerable, insecure and exposed. Businesses feel out of control.

Freeths, Whitecap Consulting and Break for Growth are collaborating to bring you a series of events designed to help companies respond positively and holistically to this changing world, identifying opportunities to stay strong, hit the ground running and seize competitive advantage.

Our first event will discuss the power of a holistic approach to business recovery, considering companies and people together. Many studies have proven the link between engaged teams and commercial success – this global Gallup study shows a boost in profits of 21%*.

  • Re-plan – David Mellor (Whitecap Consulting) will focus on understanding the new market context; developing propositions to address new needs; transforming commercial performance;
  • Re-shape – Emma Batten and Fiona Powell (Managing Associates in the Employment team at Freeths) will discuss options for re-shaping your workforce, focusing on options for avoiding redundancies, retaining staff so easily lost in an economic downturn;
  • Re-engage – Cathy Rhodes (Break for Growth) will share some key considerations in leading distressing change sensitively, building resilience, encouraging discretionary effort and always respecting people at the heart of the change.

The seminar will be followed by a Q&A session where you will be able put your questions to our panel. You are also welcome to send any questions in advance to be answered on the day. Please submit these using the text box on the Zoom registration page or email [email protected]
