Employment law update with Willans

9am - 1:30pm

Experts from Willans LLP are hosting an event for employers and human resources professionals in May to refresh their knowledge on employment law requirements.

The lawyers will be looking at recent and forthcoming developments in legislation and case law and, if time allows, will use the Willans crystal ball to predict (with an unknowable degree of accuracy!) what Brexit might mean for employment law over the next few years.

There will also be opportunity for group discussion. This session is aimed at directors, those with responsibility for HR and risk management, HR managers and legal advisors to help make sure they are not falling foul of the law or exposing the organisation to unnecessary risks.

It will be presented by Chambers-rated employment partner Matthew Clayton, head of Willans employment law team with 20 years’ experience in this area, and his colleagues, Jenny Hawrot and Helen Howes. The session will take place on Tuesday 9 May at Stonehouse Court Hotel (just minutes from M5 J13) from 9am until 1.30pm. It costs £30 to attend and includes lunch and refreshments. An ‘early bird’ discount of £5 applies to tickets booked by 1 April 2017.

Young Entrepreneurs Final at GCHQ

19 May 2017

The final of the Young Entrepreneurs competition takes place at GCHQ, with the winning team from each participating school competing to win the final, judged by business leaders and GCHQ.

In partnership with GCHQ, Young Entrepreneurs is based on the concept of Dragon’s Den. Aimed at encouraging young people to think outside of the box, think creatively and develop their communication and presentation skills, this programme is aimed specifically for students in Year 9. Working in small teams to devise a new product or service and with guidance from business leaders, students develop a marketing campaign, a price and a pitch for their product or service and present it to a panel of ‘friendly’ dragons. The dragons hear the pitch, ask questions, give feedback and select a winning team.
