Introducing our thought leadership series DRPG Bitesize Talks

Written by Admin

1 April 2020

After the success of our first bitesize talk broadcast where over 640 participants joined our live stream,  we have launched our latest thought leadership series, DRPG Bitesize Talks, a series of livestream broadcasts where a panel of experts talk us through some of the biggest challenges businesses are facing today. The 30-minute bitesize talks focus on solutions, advice and best practice, with the option to ask questions at the end. They have been created with the objective of sharing knowledge and insight from internal and external professionals to help solve some of the problems we collectively face.

This week’s bitesize talk delved into crisis leadership and the psychological effects of remote working on both teams and business culture; exploring the effects of self-isolation, enforced home-working and having to manage teams remotely.

Joining group CEO, Dale Parmenter, (virtually) on the sofa were guests:

  • Lindsey Harding, executive coach and leadership psychologist giving hints and tips on working from home, as well as some insights into maintaining ‘the norm’ as the self-isolation period progresses.
  • Richard Sivers, who has over 20 years’ experience in the leadership, talent, organisation development and L&D arena, talking about the importance of building and maintaining company values in times of crisis.
  • Sean Riches, team performance and efficiency expert who shared his insights on how to change leadership conversations to reflect the times and get the most out of your team when working remotely.
