One of the things we look for when we choose people to work closely with (our Associates), is their commitment to 'give something back' as a volunteer to the community that they work in.
This week is Volunteers Week, an annual celebration of the work that volunteers do, everywhere. Now in its 35th year, the annual campaign takes place 1-7 June every year and sees charities and voluntary groups get together to recognise the contribution volunteers make to our communities every day. You can find out what's happening at the Volunteers Week website. You can support the celebration by getting involved and by using the hashtag #volunteersweek on social media.
So, thank you to all our Associates who volunteer, and volunteers everywhere!
John Baker, our Managing Partner, recently gave a short talk on the state of leadership and management in the UK as part of his role as Regional Board Member of the Chartered Management Institute in Bristol.
The talk covered recent research by the Chartered Management Institute on how managers and leaders are trained and low-cost ways that managers and leaders can develop their knowledge and skills.
The event was run by SevernNet, a not-for-profit enterprise, run by, and working for the benefit of, the businesses, organisations and the community extending from Royal Portbury Dock through Avonmouth, Severnside to Western Approach Industrial Park.
Here at Silver Moor we have a range of services that can support businesses of all sizes, including short training workshops, coaching and business mentoring.
