Improve your leadership skills – 26 September‏

JCI Liverpool has teamed up with the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce and the International Coaching Academy  with a view to organising a one hour course on improving your leadership skills, which will be combined with JCI Liverpool’s annual public speaking competition. The event will take place on 26 September, from 5PM, at the Liverpool Chamber’s office at 1 Old Hall Street, Liverpool.  

The one hour course will be taught by John Haynes, Founder of the International Coaching Academy (ICA) and the principle coach on all ICA courses. He has been in the business of people development for over 30 years.

After John’s talk, the event will also feature JCI Liverpool’s annual public speaking competition which will involve up to 5 JCI members competing against each other in a fun environment. Each of the 5 JCI members will deliver a 7 minute speech on one of the following topics: (1)To me freedom of speech means….. (2) Do we have gender equality in the UK? (3) Is JCI the leading global network of young active citizens? (4) This country relies on its army of volunteers! (5) An Englishman’s home is his castle. The winner of the competition (being a full member of JCI Liverpool) will get the chance to represent JCI Liverpool at JCI UK’s National Public Speaking Competition in Leeds (travel expenses and hotel paid by JCI).
