Hosting resource pack
Making the most of your valuable time off-site requires some preparation beforehand.
We have created a resource pack to help you think through what you want from the day and ways to achieve it – as well as just enjoying being together in this extraordinary place!
Once you have booked your Away Day we will send you a link to the pack. As well as suggesting a shape and rhythm for the day, we offer tools for thinking and talking creatively together and tips on making the most of the outdoor space in the valley.
There are occasions when having an external facilitator for your Away Day can be helpful. Sue is highly experienced in working with different teams and can support you as little or as much as you need. Sometimes it’s just about having someone else in the room…
Get in touch and talk with her about what you want to achieve.
Releasing creative leadership in teams
We live in a rapidly changing world and the fixed points are no longer there. And more of the same is, frankly, bonkers.
This calls for a very different kind of leadership, which is creative and innovative in character. And doesn’t rely on a single person, but embraces the power of teams and collaboration.
This is Sue’s space – and if you want to know more, talk with her…
Organising scientists has mischievously been likened to herding cats, because it is notoriously impossible. Sue Heatherington helped me organise and run two of the most effective scientific meetings I have attended: fifty top international people worked together, thought in new ways, and were inspired to carry on working together after the event. Sue planned the meetings meticulously, but also had the professionalism on the day to seamlessly adapt and transform the activities to enable the meeting to exceed all expectations in quality, networking and in generating unexpected powerful ideas. Perhaps most impressively, she got people to work very hard, in new and sometimes challenging ways, and to enjoy the experience immensely.”Prof Harold Thimbleby, Swansea University
