Getting Started 2013 is the only event from IGD's Leading Edge exclusively for those new to, or with up to two years' experience in, the food and grocery industry. The day will include both personal development and industry insight sessions designed to enhance your core skills, plus a networking lunch and drinks reception at the end of the day.
With sustainability touching the lives of everyone, this is the perfect time for you to get to grips with this vital and topical subject. IGD’s Sustainability Insight team will bring you the latest emerging trends that impact the food and grocery industry, taking a field to fork perspective. They will showcase opportunities and challenges that you (and your organisation) will need to address, and present a highly visual, interactive and current view of sustainability across the industry.
Team motivation is a much talked about hot topic; how do you really ensure that you, and those around you, are switched on, pointed in the right direction and ready to seize the moment? This masterclass will enable you to discover some of the fundamentals in building, developing and sustaining a highly motivated team.
IGD's Global Insight team are out exploring the markets around the world, but will be back in time to give you an overview of their latest findings! This masterclass is designed to give newcomers a great introduction to global markets, and for those of you already more familiar with international retail, there will be plenty of ‘up-to-date’ take outs and findings that you might not have been aware of.
Starting with the premise that the “Art of Diplomacy is letting other people have your own way”, this Masterclass will open your eyes as to when you are being manipulated and how you can manipulate others in an entirely ethical manner! This Masterclass is an absolute must for anyone in an organisation who has to negotiate and influence internally or externally – therefore, everyone!!
