Willmott Dixon: Developing Leaders – The Human Factor

Organiser: Willmott Dixon
Location: HOME, First Street, Manchester


How to power your business with emotionally connected people

If you connect with people on an emotional level your business will perform better.

Spend a day with us – and a panel of highly acclaimed speakers – exploring how and why being more ‘human’ in the way you do business makes sense.

Adopting this positive behaviour driven philosophy with your people, your customers and your supplier’s increases performance and profit as well as making business more enjoyable!

Willmott Dixon is inviting property professionals from across the North West to join us for this free, inspirational and memorable event in the exciting surroundings of Manchester’s centre of contemporary arts, HOME.

Following the major success of last year’s event, our second Developing Leaders conference promises to be another unmissable business event out of the ordinary.

This full-day event is aimed at giving you ideas, inspiration and actions for improving your business, as well as providing quality networking with leaders in the region.
