Every Aspire programme ends with a Celebration Conference where delegates have an opportunity to reflect and draw upon their learning and development journey to present an influential business case to our expert panel in a Dragon’s Den style.
There will be an invited audience at the event including; Heads of HR & OD, delegate’s sponsors and others who are there to lend their support and help celebrate success.
The project and final presentation are vital components in embedding and demonstrating the learning and personal growth and are key to securing the CIPD Certificate of Achievement awarded to delegates completing their Aspire journey.
WME will also make an award for the #loveyourhr best blog from Module 2 of the programme.
The Celebration Conference is a great networking opportunity and is free to attend. Go to our Book Aspire page to check out the Celebration Day programmes!
My Aspire Journey, Andrea Burns, Birmingham City Council
At the beginning of the journey I did not really know what to expect, we were guinea pigs for a new programme that looked interesting and current so, in first gear, I set off, not really sure where I was going.
Second gear kicked in when I undertook the 360 degree feedback diagnostic. The questions were really searching and the feedback from my reviewers really helped me focus upon my development, how I could fill the gaps and where my existing strengths were.
In transit when the research project got underway, travelling the breadth of the West Midlands to interview a range of people across local government and the third sector.
Revving up as learning took place when the final report started to take shape. Real learning that could be applied back at the work place.
Engine on full throttle at the review day when it all came together, excellent organisation, fantastic presentations and a real feeling of success and achievement.
If you want to go on a great personal development journey, I recommend you take the Aspire route!
“I want to encourage Delegates to be brave with their work, to have confidence in their ideas and to push them through. I believe organisations need to be pro-active and creative with their HR support if they are going to successfully deal with the challenges they face.” (Cohort 1 Speaker)
