The Committee raised the subject of running more diverse topics at our bi monthly meetings. We can of course continue to run programmes of traditional safety presentations covering WAH, CoSHH, Noise, Human Factors, Legislation blah blah. But we recognise that many safety managers, myself included, struggle sometimes with other more basic management skills such as time management, influencing awkward people, writing winning business cases and even stuff like social media.

Now's your chance to have your say. The poll included is not just to determine the most popular of these suggested topics but to gauge overall interest in having additional, professional development topics covered, perhaps in active workshops.

So come one, have a vote and let's see if we can all be better at something.

No, neither can I Mark. I have looked at the options but I can't see anything. Maybe having three votes would be good. Phil can this be changed to allow more than one option to be selected?

Would not let me do more than one choice either Frown . So here are my choices:

Effective business case writing
People Management and conflict resolution
Time management and being better organised.

Personally I have done a basic accounting course but the budget writing bit would be useful.

I do think some of these would be ideal topics for 'worshops' rather than just a 45 minute talk. Or maybe a short talk on the topic to wet the appetite and then a workshop later in the year.

What would you as a member prefer?

Would you be prepared to pay a small fee for attending say a mornings workshop?

Any ideas and suggestions, as Chris said would be greatly appreciated.
