The Entrepreneurial Exchange

Delegation - A Vital Skill

Supper Club

Delegation is a skill we all know about but few are good at.  Delegation and team building underpin the best managment styles which encourage employees to achieve their full potential and enables you to get the best out of them.

In this Supper Club Hilary Roberts shared what she has done to enable her company HR Consultancy, which she founded in 1994, to develop significantly to the point where it currently employs around 320 staff in two cities with plans to expand to Manchester and Bristol over the next few years.

The event was chaired by John Anderson.

"The presentation by Hilary was a good example of delegation gone wrong along with a guide to fixing it".

"Very useful open discussion regarding experiences and how to tackle delegation problems, expecially from my perspective in a rapidly growing company".

"Great to hear the sharing of expriences. Yet again invaluable".
