Development Group – Marketing

Week commencing 15th June

Date: 15 June 2020 3pm – 4:30pm


For many people working in the Digital Creative and Tech (DCT) sector it’s really hard to get the advice or help needed – especially from colleagues, managers or even owners. Sometimes people feel anxious admitting they don’t understand something – or no one else understands their area of specialism – or even nobody is available (or able) to give the right answers.

Each Career Development Group brings between 5 to 7 people together for a 1.5hr discussion about their work, hosted by an independent facilitator. Each group meets six times, once a month, over six months. Group members are assembled to include people in similar roles, similar sectors, facing similar challenges.

The facilitator will have relevant skills in the group’s subject area and will be a little more senior than the group’s core composition. The facilitator will be responsible for shaping the agenda – based on the group’s instructions; steering the conversation; making sure everyone has a chance to talk; and offering the benefit of their own experience as and when it’s valid. The principal focus, however, is to allow the group members to discuss their own challenges so they can offer support to each other and share ideas of how to improve their work processes.

All group members will come from different companies and the facilitator will not be aligned to any member’s companies either – to support free-flowing conversation.

Current groups are full but we will be hopefully launching more groups in July
