Paul Hooper-Keeley Elected as CIMA West Midlands Chairman

I am delighted to report that I have been elected to the role of CIMA West Midlands Chairman for a 2-year term, beginning in January 2015.

Having been involved with the voluntary committees of The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants for some 15 years, I was CIMA Branch President of the North West Midlands from 2003-2005 and am currently completing a 3-year term in the same role (now designated NWM Branch Chairman).

I look forward to contributing positively to the Area Board’s aims for our members and students, and for the Institute’s goals as a whole, at Area Chair level.

Free CIMA/IoD Event – ‘Conversational Coaching: Performance Language & Being Present’, 25th November in Stoke-on-Trent

Not every coaching session happens in a meeting room with uninterrupted time. Sometimes every passing conversation is an opportunity and so every moment counts.

Questions that prompt people to perform at their best require insight and skill. Above all, they involve being fully present with the person you are with.

This presentation is about how to: -

-      Achieve this level of motivation with your staff.

-      Improve your skill at being fully 'present'.

-      Listen and then engage others with the right questions.

Richard's presentation runs through the 'what and how' to turn every conversation into quality questions. This will help your language become fully present and effective.
