We are very fortunate to have a Lewisham dedicated session by Smarter Not Harder, on time management and efficiency skills for Lewisham Charities. This session is also hosted by Goldsmiths University of London.
Smarter Not Harder are who are leadership & management experts, and since 2003 they have been training people who work for large businesses like Sky, Sage, KPMG and many successful small businesses too. The notion of “giving first” has always been at the heart of what they do, which is why they’ve decided to use their years of training experience to help those working within the charity sector. Some of the charities they have worked with so far are Brainstrust, Restless Development, Thames Valley Air Ambulance, Street League and many more.
They are offering leaders and managers who work within UK charities free training to help them develop their skills and knowledge. They run regular training sessions on important subjects such as coaching, setting expectations, managing performance, delegating, motivating others and time management (in a digital age).
They provide the trainers, the facilitators, logistical support, handouts and have partnered with venues so all the attendees will need to do is make their own way to the session with a pen and paper. That’s it!
The SmartWorking module helps people to know simple, but effective tools & techniques which can help them get more out of their working day.
