Southwater Event Group launches Aspiring Leaders Programme

The International Centre, Telford.

Southwater Event Group has handpicked 12 candidates to take part in the nationally accredited programme with the aim of retaining talent and further developing the skills of staff members to reach senior managerial roles.

Southwater Event Group, owners of The International Centre, Telford, announces the launch of its Aspiring Leaders Programme, a respected leadership and management ILM qualification that will aid succession planning and emphasise the Group’s commitment to growing its senior management team. 

Having invested over £30,000 into the project, Southwater Event Group has handpicked 12 candidates to take part in the nationally accredited programme with the aim of retaining talent and further developing the skills of staff members to reach senior managerial roles. The qualification will consist of 12 modules, 13 training days and four assignments all to be completed within 20 months. 

Gareth Dorrington, Senior Project Manager at StagecraftUK, Southwater Event Group’s event production company, who has been chosen to be part of the programme, comments: “I am delighted to have been chosen to take part in the Aspiring Leaders Programme. I have been working for the Southwater Event Group for almost three years and it is great to be offered the opportunity to enhance my skills and move forward in my career.”

Catherine Watson, HR Director at Southwater Event Group, which employs 475 staff, adds: “We are thrilled to have launched our Aspiring Leaders Programme for 2017. We selected 12 great candidates with the aim of developing their skills further following completion of the L4 and L5 Management Programme with Derby University.  We have developed a training schedule; meticulously planned so that all delegates can attend the training sessions. It will be great to see how the programme helps shape them into the future leaders of Southwater Event Group, making a real difference to the development of the Group and the services it provides to its clients.”

The Aspiring Leaders Programme was officially launched at a special dinner for successful candidates who then took part in a two-day training course held at The International Centre, Telford, on leading and motivating a team.
