ABC 1 Day Seminar Leeds 2017

It’s a new year and that means more fantastic member benefits with the return of our 1 day seminars!

The first one will be held on 28th February at The Climbing Lab in Leeds.

As ever we’ve a range of practical and meeting room sessions – and just as importantly, the chance to meet other wall operators, managers and staff – as well as ABC committee members and we always design these events to make sure there’s time to mingle, chat, share ideas & find out whats happening in the climbing world.

The Event will start with a run down on the latest participation trends and a report on the Accident Reporting Database – and then there’s a choice of two morning sessions and two afternoon sessions – as well as the opportunity to chat to representatives of the ABC regarding any matters of concern.

It would be really great to see a good turnout at this regional event – the BMC FUNdamentals taster session run by renowned Climbing Coach Katherine Schirrmacher, is tipped to be a great practical session. Tom will clue us in on the current changes to our new ABC Management Guidelines and Zoe will presenting an inspirational session on Accountability!

Keep watching this space as we add more details on further sessions……

Lunch & coffee is of course included….The cost is £40 per person to members and £60 to non members


Be Seeing you…

    The Accountability Ladder
    Success in any business is all about accountability. Not holding your employees accountable for their actions but holding yourself accountable as the leader.
    A good member of staff doesn’t get embroiled in the ‘blame and complain’ game, they identify issues to development and using their skills and expertise, make things happen!

    This workshop will help you to understand where you sit on the ladder and what you can do to move up and make yourself more effective, through;
    • Using self-discipline
    • Applying the ladder everyday
    • Understanding why you want to be at the top of the ladder
    • Continuously implementing solutions
