CMCE Research Conference - 24 November

 Registration is closed for this event
This conference brings together five commentators who will address how the training and development of young professionals needs to evolve.  This event is open both to Company Members and Non-Members to book.


The impact of COVID on the training and development of young professionals

Many new starters since March have rarely seen their colleagues face-to-face or visited their offices. Casual contact has disappeared and with it the opportunity to learn from more experienced colleagues and to form the social networks vital to performing well within the informal organisation. The same applies to education and training: remote learning cannot wholly substitute for face-to-face sessions.

This conference brings together five commentators with different perspectives that illuminate this important subject. Our focus will be on management consultants, but the issues arising in their training and development now and in the future apply equally to all who are in the professions:

  • Jeremy Dalton leads PwC's VR/AR team, helping clients understand, quantify, and implement the benefits of virtual reality and augmented reality technology.
  • Steve Asher will bring his consulting experience across a range of industries and organisations to the challenge of developing professional skills in a variety of environments, countries and sectors.
  • Kelly Matos has recently gained an MSc in Management with a research project on productivity and work experience post Covid-19 in the consulting industry.
  • Dr Christine Rivers is Director for Learning & Teaching at the University of Surrey Business School. She has extensive experience in advising business schools and educational providers on blended learning/ hybrid education and staff development.
  • Dr Peter Chatterton is a physicist and digital innovator in the UK Government’s digital modernisation programmes for universities - to enhance teaching, learning and assessment. He has been a prime mover in setting up industry/education partnerships and in developing student employability.

After input from our speakers there will be the opportunity for questions and answers. As this is a large topic and we have only a short time, we will be convening a follow-up special interest group to continue the discussion.

During the evening, we will also be announcing the winners of this year's CMCE Consulting Research Awards and the winner of the prestigious Urwick Cup.
