I’ve had a note from Charlotte Holder at Morse about an event that they are running on 2nd December in London, for FE college senior management teams. Depending on your role, this may not be of immediate interest to you, but you may want to pass the details onto a colleague.

Charlotte writes:

MORSE_Tag_2Col_CWe would like to invite you to join us at an exclusive morning event on Tuesday 2nd December to explore how, in the Further Education sector, business can be greatly increased and employer engagement made more effective, through the use of intelligence-led systems.

Colleges are becoming increasingly effective in responding to employer needs and diversifying their income base. However, growing levels of business by tracking contacts with employers and capitalising on intelligence gathered by customer-facing staff continues to present a major challenge for the sector.

This session, which has been jointly arranged by Microsoft UK and Morse, will focus on how Relationship Management Systems can be utilised to more accurately target your business development resources. Importantly, the event will also demonstrate how the system may help your organisation build an evidence base toward Training Quality Standard certification, as well as providing an opportunity to network with an invited group of fellow principals and senior managers.

Date:                    Tuesday 2nd December, 2008 

Time:                    10.00am – 1.00pm

Venue:                  Soho House, LondonW1D 4EB

Facilitator:            Keith Finney, Director, FE Partnerships

The agenda will cover

  • Turning leads into project wins to maximise Return on Investment
  • Automating employer interaction processes to strengthen relationships, meet deadlines and improve college reputation
  • Ensuring better cross collaboration between departments, employers, strategic partners and sub-contractors
  • Introducing new systems to capture and manage information such as matching training solutions to employer needs

The content of the day is specifically aimed for principals or their senior staff nominee.

Having re-read the invite note, I’m presuming when Charlotte said “We would like to invite you to join us”, she meant YOU not me! Okay – checked it – it really was an invite for YOU not me!
