Not all a bed of roses!

From Plantagenets to Tudors, examining the fateful strategies that determined who should wear the crown of England, and how these might play out in modern business.

Known to history as the wars of the roses, the brutal interfamilial clash between the Plantagenet Houses of Lancaster and York raged for over 30 years, ultimately clearing the way for a new royal House of Tudor to emerge victorious from the ashes. Hosted by  Karen Carpenter, Executive and Small Business Coach, this will be a series of interactive zoom events during which we will examine the circumstances and critical decisions of four vastly different leaders; Henry VI, Edward IV, Richard III, Henry VII and consider what their individual successes and failures can teach us about leadership in modern business.

Flying Solo!

The online thinking community for solopreneurs

Being your own boss is tough. It's hard graft, doing lots of things you never prepared for, on top of all the things you did prepare for!! It can be scary, and it's often really lonely! In fact, one of the most common reasons sole traders and micro-business owners seek out a coach is because they have no one else they trust enough to talk things through with. Hosted by Karen Carpenter, and Kristina Rosenqvist, FLYING SOLO is an opportunity for solopreneurs to come together once a month for the purposes of exploring some of the everyday challenges of running a business in a safe, reflective community of equals. It will be participant led and is likely to include discussions relating to building personal and business resilience, as well as elements of goal setting and mutual accountability. The format will be a blend of networking, group coaching, and mastermind principles and has been designed especially for those on limited budgets. Only those serious about developing their business should apply

Coach Chat 2024!

Leading with confidence in a complex world.

With more than half the world's population heading to the polls this year, 2024 seems set to bring even more uncertainty to businesses, large and small, across the globe. Whether we consider ourselves industry leaders, leaders of people, or solely leaders of own destiny, staying focused on what matters most, when all around is changing faster than we can keep up, and market trends are shifting whilst we sleep, is a challenge we all share. Hosted by Karen Carpenter and Kristina Rosenqvist, 'Leading with confidence in a complex world' is an opportunity to reflect with other leaders on the changing shape of the world around us, to think about the impact of global forces on local business, and consider the strategies that might help us perform at our best in what seems an increasingly volatile environment.
