Epic seminar offers adventurous route to success

People who want to start a business or make other life changes are invited to a fun and informative seminar that promises an adventurous route to success (Monday 11 June).

Entitled Epics, journeys and other adventures, the session will turn to stories and storytelling, looking at traditional adventure tales to reveal powerful lessons for people starting, or already running a business.

The seminar is also designed for people who coach entrepreneurs and others making life changes.

The free event will be held at the University of Bath in Swindon on Monday 11 June and starts at 7pm.

The seminar will be given by Roisin Murray from The Derbyshire Business School where she is Programme Leader in Business Coaching and Client Partnership Manager.

She describes herself as having had many adventures, from teenage mum to mature student, to civil servant and senior manager to business consultant. She developed a passionate interest in stories and story telling while studying for am MSc in Personal and Organisational Development.

“When we set out to run our own business, or change our career or life pattern we set out on a kind of adventure,“ said Ms Murray. “This seminar will help you to consider where you are on your journey, what kind of fellow adventurers you need to look for and what kind of prize you are seeking.”

The seminar is part of the Business Hub’s Coaching and Mentoring for All programme, funded by the European Social Fund. Further seminars with leading business speakers will run each month until October.

The events are open to all local business people but priority for places will be given to people from businesses with fewer than 250 employees. To book a free place see the Related Links section.
