Oxford Technology & Media Presents Early Spring Networking Event 2016 What is Motivation?
Date: Monday 22nd February 2016, 6.00pm to 9.00pm Venue: The Story Museum, 42 Pembroke Street, Oxford, OX1 1BP
Love may well make the world go round but how well do we really understand what gets people out of bed in the morning let alone enjoy what they do? How important is creativity in the world of work? Why are some people so difficult? How do you get everyone pulling in the same direction? How do you find and motivate the truly outstanding people? What is Motivation?
Oxford Technology & Media are delighted to welcome author and coach James Sale to kick off 2016 with a fascinating look into how you can map motivation and bring true insight into the uncertain world of people management. James will explore the nine motivators, how motivation changes with time and how it affects team and organisational dynamics within organisations such as John Lewis and Ordnance Survey. In a world dominated by change and technology, James will explain that just by thinking about what motivates your people creates a level of growth and development that many organisations can only dream about. We look forward to seeing you there!
The event is free of charge for OTM members and will be held in the centre of Oxford at The Story Museum, 42 Pembroke St, OX1 1BP. Click here for directions. 6.00pm – Event Opens, Networking & Refreshments Buffet food and drinks will be available after the event 9pm – Close
