Event details

For entrepreneurs survival is key, but how do you thrive in a world of increasing complexity and competition?

Nottingham Trent University’s The Hive invites local businesses from the D2N2 area (Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire) to get involved in this free Enabling Innovation workshop exploring purposeful mindset.

In this session, we will explore the idea of purpose and start getting focused on yours. Using a combination of input and interactive exercises, we’ll work together to define purpose, offer a simple model for practising purpose (that you can take away and use straight away) and begin the process of defining the dent you can make on the universe.

Facilitator: AuthenticU

The workshop will be facilitated by AuthenticU. AuthenticU believe people and teams are happier and perform better when connected with a clear picture of the ‘dent they want to make on the universe’. AuthenticU work with organisations, teams and individuals to design bespoke programmes which unlock this potential through challenging, provoking and experiential exploration.
