Sports Day Winners and Resolving Conflicts

July 18, 2017

Last Luncheon Before the Holidays

Summer is well upon us, and a little rain is good for the garden and the soul!! Our next luncheon is on Friday 21st July. This year we are trying to resurrect the August Sailing Day from Lymington. There are a number places left for this event, if interested please confirm by Monday 17th July.

The September luncheon on Friday 15th is our “Chairman’s Handover Luncheon”, when Ian Hunter our existing Vice Chairman will take over the full roll as Chairman.

Sports Day Results

The June Luncheon was much enjoyed by those who played Golf or Croquet as well as those who attended the luncheon. The Champions of the Croquet were: Rosemary Penn-Newman and Laura Trapnell who won the “Alexander Keen Plate”. The Champion golfer on the Day was Paul Davies, a guest of Kevin Stansfield, who won the “Terry Holler Trophy”

Looking forward to seeing you on the 21st July.

Guest Speaker: John Sephton

John works with senior leaders, teams and individuals at all levels across organisations, to resolve conflicts and achieve clarity of purpose in the seemingly intractable challenges encountered in the contemporary business world.

Before forming his own company nearly ten years ago, John served as a Royal Navy Officer, initially in the Feet Air Arm, as a Sea King pilot, and at sea in ships from aircraft carriers to frigates.

Eventually, he was “caught out” and promoted to senior rank and made a “grown up.” Thereafter, he moved into roles in career and talent management, as well as attempting to coordinate the personnel programme for the Royal Navy and Royal Marines on behalf of the Second Sea Lord.

John is a Chartered Fellow of both the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and the Chartered Management Institute. Quite remarkably, many years ago he was awarded an Honours degree in Chemistry from Exeter University, most of the subject matter of which he has now forgotten. He is a Trustee of the Society of Mediators and leads their programme of continuous professional development. His website is woefully out of date and he remains confused about social media, having just about worked out how to switch on the camera on his iPhone.

If ever asked, John would list his interests as: wife; children; golf; sailing; and gardening. Sensibly, in that order, but not necessarily at the same time! And one day he would like to sit down and read all the books he should have read years ago.
