Creating the time and space to succeed with an increasing workload and ‘perpetual busyness’ will be the themes of a workshop held by a new networking forum.

The Glyndŵr Club plays host to Dr Jan Green (pictured) presenting Strategic Headway: Time to Think on Tuesday, November 10 at Glyndŵr University Wrexham.

Dr Green, Senior Business Lecturer and Change Strategist at the University’s North Wales Business School, will discuss rapid responses within industry and society, developing strategies based on “contemplation and comparison”.

“Rapid responses within business and society generate a veneer of perpetual busyness and seem to always encroach on time required for longer-term considerations,” said Dr Green.

“A successful business requires space for creativity and to sustain growth, using existing knowledge and considering the prevailing environmental factors.

“We will be looking at what can fill this space when it’s created, and whether strategy should include fantasy or be developed from the perspective of eternal optimism or that of a doom-monger? It’s going to be an interesting discussion.”

Dr Green’s appearance at The Glyndŵr Club follows those of The Apprentice star Felipe Alviar-Baquero – who made it to week nine of the hit BBC One show last year – and Ann Francke, Chief Executive of the Chartered Management Institute.

It also comes after the University’s Business department unveiled the new North Wales Business School to further meet the demands of the region, producing innovative degrees and professional courses in partnership with employers.

Laura Gough, Business Development Executive at Glyndŵr University Wrexham, said the club was set up in response to interest from companies and entrepreneurs keen to work closer with the cutting-edge institution.

“The Glyndŵr Club is all about providing an outlet for businesses to share knowledge, ideas, best practice, challenges, and any opportunities for them to work collaboratively,” said Laura.

“We have a vital role to play in creating opportunities for all of them to grow, providing access to the types of services and support which would otherwise be beyond their reach.”

The event takes place at the Catrin Finch Centre from 4.30pm-6.30pm.
