Throughout February, event marketing expert Norfolk and Suffolk Promotions is helping industry professionals find and overcome their weaknesses in a series of insightful workshops.
Event marketing agency Norfolk and Suffolk Promotions believes that no one is without weaknesses, however, what separates the successful from the unsuccessful is the ability to face these struggles head-on. ‘People often allow weaknesses to remain weaknesses for too long; they aren’t proactive and don’t think they can change’ outlines the Managing Director at Norfolk and Suffolk Promotions, Simon Reynolds. ‘Everyone has the potential to change and excelling in any capacity simply requires someone to accept their weaknesses and adapt. Otherwise, those weaknesses are going to hold them back for their entire lives’ continues Mr Reynolds.
Determined to support the development and prospects of professionals within the sales and marketing industry, Norfolk and Suffolk Promotions has announced a series of workshops focusing on overcoming professional weaknesses. With a large percentage of its workforce harbouring ambitions to take on leadership responsibilities in the future, Norfolk and Suffolk Promotions feels now is a crucial time to take stock and assess areas for improvement. ‘In leadership especially, missing even one desired trait, whether it be the ability to communicate effectively, or make fast, informed decisions, will mean you will be less effective, and your business will suffer’ warns the Managing Director. ‘We want to work together now, to help people learn how to move past their weaknesses so that they can be capable and talented leaders.’
Throughout February the Managing Director will be holding a series of workshops and meetings with aspiring business leaders and industry professionals, to help them get to grips with their weaknesses. The agency recommends professionals start the journey by looking at their strengths, as strengths and weaknesses are usually interdependent. ‘For example, if an individual is incredibly organised, they may struggle to work with others, and to hand over control of projects.’ States Mr Reynolds.
Norfolk and Suffolk Promotions is eager to use its collective business expertise to help more professionals find the right track towards success. The agency is confident that gaining an outside perspective and consistent feedback and having the opportunity to work alongside a highly motivated community will have a profound impact on industry professionals.
‘It’s important to understand even the most successful business people have weaknesses, being proactive and willing to tackle them head-on is the secret to success, which is something we are keen to promote throughout February concludes Mr Reynolds.
