Building a Team Based on Core Values and Talent.
April 17th 12.00pm-2.00pm
How can you attract, source, build, retain and manage a team to ensure best chance of success?
Ideas are great, but implementation is key. Successful implementation of any venture will inevitably be dependent on the team and it’s vital to have the right team on board as you resource and scale a project. No matter how great your idea is or how hard you work, you can’t do it all and will need to bring in the right talent at the right time.
Join LESANZ WA and CERI’s Expert-in-Residence 2018, Jung Park, for a lively and practical discussion on issues relating to sourcing, attracting, hiring and remunerating talent, how to use your networks to identify talent, new ways in which staff are engaging with employers including portfolio careers and virtual staff, and much, much more
What makes a Good Idea, a Good Idea? Developing Dynamic & Viable Concepts
Monday April 17th 3.30pm-6.00pm
In the entrepreneurial arena there is nothing more disconcerting than watching someone pour his or her life into a new business concept with one or more serious flaws. Such unfounded optimism is similar to Alan Greenspan's term "irrational exuberance", a self-deceiving state likely to result in a financial loss and emotional pain.
Jung will provide the tools to minimise the risk of a 'sample of one' approach - which some would-be entrepreneurs take based on ideas he/she is in love with. Critically assessing the viability and feasibility of the new ideas before taking the leap will save money, time, efforts and emotions, so the 'right' idea is executed at the 'right' time.
