MBA Masterclass: The Art of Being Brilliant

Andy Cope

The Art of Being Brilliant, with Andy Cope

An MBA Masterclass

Wednesday, 24th February 2016,  5.30pm – 8.00pm

We live in a manic society where most people’s lives are on permanent fast-forward. The modern workplace is typified by a never ending regime of restructures and budget cuts. Uncertainty prevails. Customer expectations are rising. Legislation is tightening. You are probably going to be audited or inspected one day soon. Outside of work there are family pressures. And society. And the traffic. Oh, and don’t forget the weather!

‘The Art of Being Brilliant’ provides an antidote to the crazy world that typifies modern Britain. This workshop uses cutting-edge research to explore how you can be you, brilliantly. The aim is to share some of the ‘secrets’ of Positive Psychology, focusing on learning new habits of thinking and behaviour that will sustain personal ‘brilliance’. It is about the ‘whole you’ and, as such, is applicable in and out of work.

Aims: Quite simply, our aim is to inspire you. No jargon or fancy words. We want you to feel refreshed, invigorated and able to function at your best (at work and home). Our strapline says it all…why settle for anything less than being yourself, brilliantly?
