LIBS Connect

12.30pm-4.30pm

Lincoln City Football Club, Sincil Bank
To book your tickets click here 


When Great Britain Women’s Hockey Team won Gold at the 2016 Olympic Games their coach at the time, Danny Kerry MBE, said of their performance throughout the games “It all sounds a bit cliche, but it was the whole piece around values, visions and behaviours, and off the back of that they have driven a very high expectation of what their daily training environment looks like.” He emphasised that 'culture precedes performance' and the importance of common purpose. He encourages his players to consider scenarios and to work out for themselves how to 'find a way' in game situations. So for Danny, a culture and a style of leading through empowerment was key to his teams success.
Join us for our next LIBS Connect at the home of Lincoln City FC, Sincil Bank. We’ll be looking to the sporting industry for lessons and insight into what makes a winning culture and an impactful leader. With special guests from Lincoln City FC, industry experts and Dr Hanya Pielichaty, Senior Lecturer, this LIBS Connect aims to deliver practical takeaways for you to implement in your business, alongside opportunities to network and connect.
Throughout the day we will be hear from various speakers on their take on sport and how they have taken it into the work place. We hope to see you there.

Join Lincolnshire’s largest law firm Wilkin Chapman LLP for a free mock employment tribunal seminar, which will provide you with the opportunity to see how a tribunal operates in practice.
The tribunal hearing will be based upon an employee’s misuse of social media and how they have brought the employer into disrepute.

The mock employment tribunal is taking place at the Lincoln International Business School. For this event, the room will be transformed into a courtroom and will delegates with an insight into how a tribunal works. Led by the employment team at Wilkin Chapman, the seminar will provide you with a clear understanding of the tribunal process and the legal issues involved and will include an overview of:
· How the parties present their case
· How witness evidence is given
· Cross-examination of witnesses
· When the judge might intervene
· The Judgment
Who should attend?: The mock employment tribunal is designed for anyone with staff management responsibilities, not just HR professionals. If you are a line manager, HR specialist, owner-manager, trade union official or a staff member that represents other staff members at formal hearings, this seminar will provide you with a clear insight into the workings of an employment tribunal.
Schedule: 8am: Registration and refreshments
8.30am: Tribunal commences
