IFS hosts Skills Exchange Day at Chelsea grounds

The IFS School of Finance is to host a Skills Exchange Day at Chelsea FCs Stamford Bridge ground on April 18 2007.

In addition to plenary sessions on transferable skills, the day will consist of five 45-minute workshops on influencing others, critical communications skills, building our self-confidence, dealing with difficult people and coping with crisis.

Karen Warden, head of executive and professional education, at the IFS School of Finance, says: This skills exchange programme will look at ways of improving performance by exposing participants to skill sets from a range of individuals outside the financial services sector who are at the top of their respective professions.

Those in financial services should ask themselves what they or their team can learn about working with, influencing or managing people, from experts like soldiers, classical musicians and a former British Lions coach.
