  • Managing Conflict in Remote Teams

    Managing Conflict in Remote Teams

    Getting remote teams and individuals to consistently work effectively may be a challenging task especially when the remote working conditions are enforced by external forces such as COVID-19. Where some individuals and teams may find it easy to work remotely research is now showing us that there are significant numbers of people who find virtual or remote working extremely challenging. Conflict in remote teams may look and feel different from the familiar conflicts experienced in face to face working environments. Author & speaker Patrick Lencioni highlights ‘fear of conflict’ as one of the major dysfunctions of a team emphasizing the importance of using conflict to achieve productive rather than unproductive outcomes.

    The primary aim of this workshop is to identify the features, causes, and consequences of conflict or more specifically unchallenged conflict in remote teams.

  • Facebook & Instagram Advertising using Ads Manager

    From 10am until 12pm

    Outline of Programme

    This training course is designed to assist participants in creating a detailed Facebook & Instagram advertising plan and have the skills and tools to be able to implement and measure it.

    Outcome of Programme

    • Understand the online customer journey and have planned ad campaigns at each stage
    • Be aware of the importance of targeting warm/hot leads and how to achieve this within Facebook & Instagram
    • Know how to design and run a successful advertising campaign and be able to measure your ROAS (return on ad spend)

    New Procedures e.g. How and when to lodge import and export SADs, etc. New Licenses
    Depending on the industry in which the company is involved in, their issues may also be slightly different. For example, the food industry will have customs duty and border delays high on their agenda, the construction industry may also be affected by border delays, while textiles would be primarily impacted by high duty rates, and IT may have to consider Export Controls.

    The above is a very simplified explanation, as not alone does each industry experience each issue differently, but each company within those industries will be affected differently. For example, larger suppliers and customers will have more negotiating power on their supply chain compared to smaller suppliers and customers.

    Ultimately, however, importers and exporters will need to know how to move their goods through Customs in Ireland and the UK. Our course will enable companies to understand both Revenue rules in Ireland and HMRC rules in the UK. We will also cover the post Brexit simplifications being introduced by both Authorities and how to apply for these. We will also explain the operational requirements necessary to move goods through Customs.

    Specific modules will include:
    Understand how to start the import/export journey
    What is Customs?
    Background/role of Revenue/ HMRC
    Obtaining an Economic Operators Registration and Identification (EORI) number
    Engaging a customs agent/understanding the customs system
