22/10/2015 Seminars & Presentation

Todays session had two seminars and a presentation.

Having completed the presentation, as today was my responsibility, I felt there were significant areas for improvement. I did not prepare my speech enough so there was a clear lack of flow with a number of pauses which could have been easily avoided. As a result of this, I often read what was on the screen which in presenations is exceptionally dangerous to do. However, an element which was positive was the clear ability for someone to read the effect of the models in comparison to a component.

With continious learning in mind, I feel that things can only get better and taking into considering reflective points, I do believe future presentations will be much better.

23/10/2015 Seminar & Presentation

Todays learning involved a seminar and a presentation on the comparison between excellence models. The morning session had learning outcomes of further enhancing the ability of being to take a question and mind map the ideas of the group. This enchancement will continue through my studies.

However I feel that today, my learning outcome was the most from my current time at Warwick. The time spent on the presentation caused our group to move away from the comparisons needing to be made. This was an error, however due to the philosophy of continuos learning, Paul was very helpful in furthering my understanding.

21/10/2011 – Presentations on Measurements of Results & Organisational Learning

In todays session, my learning excelled through the feedback provided on presentations. It was clear to see the gap between undergraduate and masters in regards to expectations. Critical feedback points included focusing on "mechanisms" and "links" between logic that is displayed. Within presentations, there needs to be a focus on clear structure, a flow and a critical analysis of the topic area. The primary skills which I feel I learnt today will put me in good sted for future presentations.

20/10/2015 – Chris Hakes session

The learning outcomes and analysis for todays session is immeasurable. Prior to Chris comming in, I had a general understanding of EFQM, however through the extensive experience of Chris, I found that my understanding and application of EFQM increased exponetially. Through this learning, I feel that I can look at an organisations current position, regardless of their size and have a diagnosable appraoch to suggesting how to improve. In todays world, I have found that opportunity lies with those who can bring true value. From this standpoint, I feel that my personal value has increased and feel confident for my steps after University.

19/10/2015 – Meetings Meetings Meetings

General Overview

Todays session revolved around the experience of being involved with a meeting. We were given a case study of a hotel which was looking to hold events, this hotel had issues which needed to be resolved. Each member was allocated a role, with myself being the finance manager.


It was interesting to see the difference between what actually took place and after analysing, just how different our meeting was in comparison to what one could call an "effective" meeting. Elements such as setting an agenda for the meeting was not carried out and having experienced this, I have come to realise how important it is for an agenda. Further to that, given that time is very important, a suggestion to split teams into sub-teams I thought would be an excellent strategy in future meetings that I partake in.
