Speakers from retail, tech, media and finance companies are joining forces at an event in Leeds to give business professionals an insight into how they can get the best out of their staff.

Taking place at Sky Betting & Gaming in the city on June 26, the day will mark the launch of the Northern Coaching Network, which brings together firms that use coaching techniques to develop their workforce’s skills.

Companies involved with next month’s Great Northern Coaching Conversations event include the BBC, Skipton Building Society and Morrisons.

Sky Betting & Gaming’s head of talent and organisational development, Catherine Boddington, said: “We want to give local organisations the network to learn more from each other about coaching and the impact it can have in driving the success of the Northern Powerhouse.”

Attendees can choose between a morning case study session, an afternoon hands-on coaching programme or the full day-long event.

The activities will be delivered with the expert help of Suzanna Prout, managing director and founder of executive coaching, coach training and leadership development company Xenonex.
