Boyes Turner's Employment Law Group invites you to attend its next Employment Law Conference focusing on difficult employee management issues and the positives of coaching and mentoring in avoiding conflict. We also want you to be inspired by our key note speaker.

Managing employee issues - be it conduct, performance or personal issues - takes time and patience. However, effective management of issues can increase employee cohesion, productivity and build better teams. But why are some conversations more difficult to have than others? How can managers effectively ask questions to reach a successful outcome? When is the right time to face the realities and consider an exit strategy? How should organisations look outside the box and use coaching and mentoring as a success tool? Join us to look at managing difficult conversations, handling negative employee situations and the positive message of improving the engagement of employees through coaching and mentoring.

Also, be inspired by our key note speaker Anne Dickens MBE.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are amending one of our scheduled speakers at next weeks conference.  We are happy to announce a new replacement speaker Anne Dickens MBE, for Maggie Alphonsi MBE (and look forward to welcoming Maggie in the future).

Anne Dickins MBE is a Gold medal winning Paralympian. As well as winning gold for paracanoeing at the 2016 Rio Paralympics she holds the world record for 200m flat water sprint and has won two World Championship and three European Championship gold medals since she started competing for Great Britain in 2013

This feat is remarkable when you consider that she is now 50, and the first time she had ever sat in a boat was in 2012! Before that she was an able-bodied ultra endurance mountain biker, which she only took up aged 36. Before discovering cycling, sport was not part of her life and she even admits that she didn't like sport at school! 

Her story of getting into sport in the first place, her life changing injury which prevented her from riding a bike, and how she turned her life around with the support from a powerful team to become Paralympic gold medalist in Rio in just 4 years is an incredible tale. It illustrates how by having a growth mindset, along with support from others, change is always possible no matter what challenges are faced.

This event focuses on high level issues and is a must for business leaders and managers, people leaders, senior HR leaders and HR directors.
