EMEA Community Day - 15th of May

9:00am - 3:00pm James Hill


In 2008 as the financial crisis was unfolding, my family purchased a 45
acre estate on the edge of Birmingham with a dilapidated and disused
Manor House nestled at the heart of it. My wife and I were charged with
giving it a meaningful future on a tight budget.
10 years on we hold a Michelin Star in our destination restaurant and were
named in the top 30 most romantic hotels in the UK by The Times.
Today we support our team on a daily basis as we continue to grow our
business. I also work with other leaders on sharing the insights that led
our project to national acclaim.
The Storybrand Framework has played a growing role in helping us focus,
clarify our message and build a tribe of raving fans.

8:15 AM Welcome/Introduction Butterfield A&B
8:30 - 9:20 AM Keynote - Don Crawley

Compassionate Leadership for IT Managers and Supervisors:

Do your clients see your business as a valued partner or just another commodity? In a near-future world of Artificial Intelligence, robotics, and automation, commodity businesses will become increasingly expendable while valued partner businesses will be seen as critical to their client’s success. Your leadership skills will make the difference as you guide your teams through the turbulent waters of change. The companies who are nimble and whose employee teams are aligned on common goals will succeed in this new paradigm, while the others will get left behind. In this highly interactive keynote by Don Crawley, author of The Compassionate Geek, you’ll learn how to introduce and model the qualities of compassion and mindfulness to your teams so your company stays out of the commodity trap and becomes your client’s valued partner.
