Presentations – How to improve team work, communication and best practice by Alison Roberts
Session 1 - Teambuilding, Icebreakers and Group Charter - 11:30 – 12:30
Session 2 - Review/finalise Charter* & Communication & Connecting skills 15:00-16:00

As I've been organizing our Meet Up group, I've been thinking about how we can improve the way the team works together and communicates ideas and best practice.
It is my view that each person in our group has some very unique skills and experience that when shared, everyone benefits. So, with the aim of building a stronger, more unified group which stimulates and stretches our members to get more from each meet up, I've arranged for a specialist in Team-building and Communication to give us the benefit of her experience. Alison Roberts has helped 11,481 people to improve the way they communicate and connect and has been featured on BBC Radio and TV and in the National Press.

*Charter = a working document that outlines the aims, goals and expectations of the group and its members. This is an opportunity for you to participate in defining the Group in a way that best serves each person and the group as a whole.

There will be a remote follow up using Google Hangouts from 8 - 9pm on the Thursday following this meet up, for those that would like to review the material covered.

    One more thing!
    Please bring with something to 'show and tell'.
    Could be android related, a souvenir from a holiday, photo, anything really that you would feel comfortable talking about for a minute on.
    Thanks.

    Hello, I have not been to the meetups yet. I come from a front-end development background (a long time ago as I am now a creative tech) but I have been watching Android for a while and want to get my coding hands dirty again. I hope I can keep up, is there anything i need to look into before tomorrow?

    Hi,

    Re the team-building and communication Training, if you listen to this MP3 beforehand, you'll get so much more out of it tomorrow.

    As it's on listening skills, it should help you at work today. Otherwise use it to relax before bed. Pick up the MP3 here:

    Alison :)
