    Feedback is an essential part of learning and development in the workplace. Most firms have formal feedback mechanisms and programs in place, but are we really listening to what managers and colleagues are telling us on a day-to-day basis? How do we give feedback to senior stakeholders without impacting our personal brand or affecting the relationships we are building? How can we coach others to give and solicit feedback?

    We've assembled a panel of experts to explore these questions and workshop some examples to give us the confidence to give and receive feedback.

    This session will assist with upcoming performance review conversations as well as provide guiding principles for feedback as your career takes you towards management roles.

    A little about each of our panellists:

    Fiona Tilden is a Senior HR Manager at Ashurst and works directly with the global business support functions. Fiona has provided HR support to the BD, Marketing and Communications teams in law firms for over 12 years. Her HR experience includes performance management, career coaching and staff engagement.
    Kate Potter is the Head of CRM and Client Insights at Gilbert + Tobin. She has 15 years of experience in and around law firms focusing on winning work, retaining clients and assisting partners and lawyers to achieve their business development goals.
      Carmen Wearne is Head of Deloitte’s Strategic Clients Team at Deloitte Australia.

    Video content is one of the most effective ways to reach and engage with B2B audiences. The issue of cost versus production quality can often hold us back, but it is possible to create engaging video content with little more than the phone in your pocket.

    Back by popular demand after a standout session in 2017, Jeff Licence, Director at Tigermonkey Productions, will run a four-hour video masterclass focussing on camera work and editing. Good storytelling skills are assumed.

    Attendees will grow their video productions skills and gain confidence to make their own videos.

    Attendance numbers will be limited to maximise the learning and interaction. A further workshop may be scheduled if demand exists.

    What to bring:

    A fully charged smartphone with enough hard drive space to shoot several minutes of video.

    Make sure your phone has editing software:

    • If on an iPhone, you may already have the iMovie app. If not download it from here.
    • If on an Android phone, install Premiere Clip from here.

    • Nexia, Level 3, 88 William Street Perth
    • Have you ever sat in meetings where partners or business leaders were throwing around jargon or complex financial concepts that left you scratching your head?
    • Ever wondered the real impact that effective pricing - or more importantly spur of the moment discounting - can have on profitability?
    • Would you like to better understand business and financial essentials, in an environment where it’s safe to ask the questions you’ve always wanted to around financial management, business planning and profitability?

    To help address these gaps, ICON WA invites you to our 5 June session to participate in a business simulation workshop that will bring unique insights into how cash circulates through a business and affects teams working across various functions.

    Program Details:

    This business simulation, run by experts from Nexia, will immerse you in a hands-on, interactive environment that brings financial statements and the art of business to life. Working in teams, participants will form the management board of an established company facing some typical market challenges. Working together you’ll make changes to the business operations to improve your financial and market position. Collectively we’ll see how to make more profit without extra sales and the impact one person’s actions can really make on business performance.

    This is a fantastic opportunity to accelerate your 'learning by doing’ in a simulation that has already helped scores of teams and individuals in a wide range of professional and B2B firms better understand how their businesses really tick. Places are limited to 30 participants so register to attend without delay.


    4:30 pm: Registration / Tea & Coffee
    4:45 pm: Simulation starts
    6:45 pm: Workshop ends followed by drinks, nibbles & networking
