Team Thomas were proud to recently join forces with our long-standing associates People Academy, Poisson Rouge and Professor Adrian Furnham to deliver two people development summits in London and Glasgow, for companies looking to maximise their people development strategy.
Held at the United Grand Lodge of England in London and the Trades Hall in Glasgow respectively, we were joined by an audience of business owners, HR leaders and L&D professionals from a diverse pool of industries, who were looking to discover innovative tools and solutions to help them effectively develop their people, teams and culture.
Opening remarks at the UGLE in London from Amir Qureshi, CEO of Thomas International
Under the banner of 'Developing high potential into high performance', the agenda topics included:
- The changing nature of leadership
- The requirements for future leaders
- The psychology of high potentials; people with talent
- How to define talent and measure high potential
- The journey of high performing teams and leaders
Delegates benefitted from a wide variety of expertise, from world renowned psychologist and test author, Professor Adrian Furnham, to leading organisational consultants People Academy and Poisson Rouge, and also Thomas' very own Head of Psychology, Jayson Darby.
I can honestly say that conference was hands-down one of the best I’ve been too in recent years. The speakers were all engaging, knowledgeable and thought provoking and has certainly disturbed our thinking which I’m championing back in the office. I attended the ‘Lead or Follow’ Ted X conference at the SECC in June… Thomas’ approach, speakers and concepts simply blew them out the water. Well done and I can’t wait for the next one.
