The hugely successful Jelf Employment Seminars return to London for another fun and informative event.  Now in their 5th consecutive year, these seminars have become a “must attend” event for many senior HR and Finance professionals.

For this session we have scouted out four of the best speakers available. Our frontline includes:

  • The learned Tim Randles will provide his usual amusing and informative insights into the complex world of Employment Law.
  • Experienced Executive Coach Pete Freeman will ask What is Coaching?”
  • Jelf’s Steve Herbert will provide his usual topical, pragmatic and original views on the many important changes to the world of Employee Benefits in 2015 and beyond.
  • Former WBC World Boxing Champion, Glenn Catley will provide a knock-out conclusion to the event with his insights on Hypnotherapy and Motivation.

Once again we also have a superb venue to stage our event.  This time we are at the Imperial War Museum which tells the stories of people’s experiences in modern war and conflict.  Delegates will be able to take in the spectacular galleries after the event concludes.  The museum is located in central London and easy to access via public transport.

Full Agenda:


09:00    Registration, coffee and networking

09:40    Welcome

09:45    Employee Benefits:  “Revolution”    

As if 5 years of unprecedented change were not sufficient, employers now need to be prepared for new initiatives following the UK General Election result. Steve will provide delegates with his usual pragmatic and (hopefully) fun updates on all the latest employee benefit issues including Pensions, Fit for Work progress, and Childcare issues.

Speaker:  Steve Herbert, Head of Benefits Strategy, Jelf Employee Benefits

10:15     Coaching:  “What is Coaching, and when is it worthwhile?”

The motivation and performance of your senior staff has a huge impact on your organisation and is worth investing in, but is Coaching the answer? Pete Freeman, an experienced Executive Coach, casts a sceptical eye over this topic and asks some key questions. What can you expect from Coaching? When does it produce a genuine return? How can you select the best Coach for each individual? Might Team Coaching be more cost effective? A useful session for all delegates.

Speaker:  Pete Freeman, Executive Coach, Freeman Coaching Limited

10:40    Delegate Voting

10:45    Break/ Refreshments/ Networking

11:10    Employment Law:  “Employment Law doesn’t have to cause a war….”

If we could get everyone to close their eyes and visualize peace and harmony in the workplace for an hour, imagine how serene and quiet it would be until people started asking if they would still get their commission.  Tim will only have half an hour and would indeed prefer that you didn’t close your eyes.  However he will be talking about the on-going issue of holiday pay, discrimination and parental leave, drugs testing and disciplinary investigations, whistleblowing, restrictive covenants and contracts and of course anything interesting which catches his eye.

Speaker:  Tim Randles, Associate Director, Penningtons Manches LLP

11:40    Motivational Performance:  “Knock-out motivation”

Former WBC World Boxing Champion Glenn Catley will round off our event with a knock-out guide as to how to get the best from your employees.  Topics covered will include goal setting, overcoming obstacles, and establishing intrinsic proof confidence to achieve successful results in work life.  Glenn will also discuss how our minds can be trained to produce the outcomes we desire, and to act in line with our preferred goals.

Speaker:  Glenn Catley, Director, Every Cloud

12:20    Closing comments/ Prize draw

12:30    Seminar concludes/ Optional access to museum galleries
