NBS hosts Personal Development week

Nottingham Business Schools was proud to host a postgraduate personal development week with a range of workshops and guest lectures.

Nottingham Business Schools was proud to host a postgraduate personal development week with a range of workshops and guest lectures. The week commenced with “The Art of Strategic Questioning” workshop delivered by Dr. David Steinberg which explored the development of questioning skills.

Dr. David Steinberg is a consultant and university lecturer specialising in advanced questioning skills for business professionals. The workshop was aimed at empowering students with new approaches to enquiry and critical thinking skills.
This was followed by a “Futures Thinking” lecture which was delivered by Warrick Harniess. Warrick is a published entrepreneur who creates immersive learning simulations about the future for risk-savvy leaders. He established two pioneering online education ventures at Pearson before founding the learning and development consultancy Scandinavia Stories.

Wednesday welcomed Andy Brent’s “The Growth Directors Secret” lecture along with his book launch. In his talk, Andy presented an overview of his book which focuses on the 'Growth Paradox': that while most companies agree that the single most important attribute a business can have is sustained, significant top-line growth, most businesses are very poor at delivering it.

His talk explored the issues affecting businesses such as failure to take business growth seriously due to structure and culture, misunderstanding of consumer behaviour and consumer decision making.

The series of lectures also included topics about self-development such as “Expressing good communication – Me and the world around me” and “Building my self-esteem – how I relate to myself” delivered by Lina Mookerjee. The workshops offered insights using humanistic theories and practices in relation to building self-esteem and healthy interpersonal relationships.
