Workshops, talks and facilitation

We’ve worked with organisations including Frieze to Airbus Group to run highly interactive workshops, arrange keynote industry speakers, and facilitate away days or key brainstorming meetings. 

All of these sessions are designed bespoke for you – below is just a flavour of what we do. You may also want to check out our upcoming events, and the people that we regularly work with. 

How not to drown at work
You’ve got hundreds of unread emails, two phones, six social media channels, a growing team who need information now, and a desktop that looks like the floor of a student house after an especially horrendous party. In this workshop Clever Boxer co-founder Simone Baird rounds up the top work processes that allow staff to not only stay sane, but get actual work done.
Takeaways: Concrete coping tips from high-flyers who have been there and lived to tell the story, plus a set of tools to use the minute you get back to work.

How to deal with clients
Working for a client is nothing like working for a boss – you’ll find yourself managing egos, politics and shifting priorities.
