SIG EVENT – Monday 1st July 2013


Professional Development Special Interest Group – 4.30pm-5.45pm

Location : Nabarro LLP, Lacon House, 84 Theobald’s Road, London WC1X 8RW

I invite you to come along to the launch of this new group to gain skills and knowledge for both your personal and professional development or alternatively come along to contribute towards the development of our members.

I am arranging a flurry of 10 minute speakers for this first event to give you a taste of what is to come.

I will produce a questionnaire for you to tell me your needs and establish your contribution.

I am very aware of the fantastic array of untapped talent that reside within you, our membership.  I am keen to create a platform upon which we can maximise your talents, feed your development and add value to TEN membership.

I anticipate offering facilitated learning ranging from external degree courses and formal course work, conferences, informal learning opportunities within the sessions and through extra events.  At times it will be intensive, collaborative, consultative, offer coaching and mentoring, include communities of practice and ideally incorporating an appropriate evaluation process.

To book please go to

I look forward to seeing you there.
