    We are holding an open evening on 10th December at RMG Networks (25 Old Broad Street, London) and on this week's Radio Show you can hear from previous secondees Ruth and Rob about how they and their organisations benefitted from their time with Engage for Success.

    in Business

    We have a special Christmas Show for our last of the year. We have some carols, an interview with members of the Birmingham City Council Choir as featured on the BBC programme The Choir, some new year's resolutions, some shout outs to great engagement practitioners and an interview with a very special festive guest!

    This show is an extended show to fit in all the contributions that we have received. We have no idea how long it will actually last (certainly no longer than 2 hours!) but don't worry if you have to hop off and do something else, it will all be recorded!

    Show #36: Singing, a Tool to Encourage People to Engage

    in Business

    Special guest: Andrea Callanan of Sing & Inspire   “Why singing is such an amazing tool to encourage people to engage with themselves and others, and how we’ve successfully utilised singing in Sing & Inspire to impact and benefit businesses across the UK.”   We’ll be interviewing Andrea Callanan, co-director of Sing & Inspire. Andrea is a classically trained musician who’s been singing professionally for nearly 2 decades. Andrea has been teaching music for over 23 years and since 2000, she’s been a leading Voice Coach in the Welsh music industry.   Sing & Inspire was founded when Andrea and her business partner Georgina Jones realised the business benefits of this motivational training and married it together with Georgina’s business skill base and idea for motivational business choirs. Andrea’s experience with preventing and correcting vocal health problems with performers over the years also led to developing a vocal health training package for business which is needed so badly in voice heavy industries and is fast becoming an essential part of occupational health and wellbeing across contact centers   Host: Jo Dodds Back channel: https://plus.google.com/communities/118419210283831602780/events

    Show #47: Communicate for Engagement Success

    in Business

    Special guest: Sean Trainor, Chair of the Communicate for Success Special Interest Group (SIG)

    The link between employee communications and business success is perhaps obvious when you look at the four enablers for success identified in the MacLeod report.

    The life in the day of an employee communications practitioner involves supporting leaders and managers articulate the purpose of the organisation and facilitating dialogue with front-line staff to make sure their voice is heard.  Recent research amongst practitioners demonstrates a desire to spend more time on these activities away from the humdrum of providing functional and operational updates.

    What is holding internal communications practitioners back from playing a more fulfilling role?

    What role will social media inside enterprise play and how is that likely to change the role of employee communications?

    These and other questions will be explored in the SIG Communicate For Success.

    Show #106 - Interview with Cathy Brown, Newly Appointed Executive Director

    in Business


    Cathy Brown, Executive Director, Engagement Success

    As Cathy said on her recent blog on our website, we've known her for a while (in fact Cathy was one of the first two secondees for EFS) but the nature of our relationship has just changed. Cathy was recently appointed as the new Exec Director for Engage for Success.

    That same blog has a video that she recorded to talk about, what we are affectionately calling, her 'manifesto', the content of a presentation that she gave at her final interview for the role, all about her thoughts and plans for the role and the movement moving forwards.

    Join us as we talk about the next phase of the movement moving further into 2015 and beyond.
