Life 2.0: The New Normal

The last year has seen the world of work turned upside-down. Thankfully, it’s starting to feel as if normality, if not quite here, is just around the corner. What will the ‘new normal’ look like? We’ve learned a vast amount over the pandemic. Old stereotypes have been shattered and new possibilities revealed. How do we make the most of these opportunities?

We’re delighted to have two fantastic speakers. HR specialist Vanessa Forster will share her research findings on the ways companies around the world are adapting to the new work trichotomy – remote, office and hybrid.

Dr Wendy Ross will address some of the valuable aspects of team working that can be lost in a remote-working environment, drawing on her research in serendipity to consider ways of encouraging those chance corridor encounters in a world with no corridors.

22 June 2021

Theories from the field of Behavioural Economics are being used increasingly by governments, regulators and companies to 'nudge' us towards the right decision - in their eyes at least. This session explores the foundations of this emerging field of study.

What people have to say about previous events....

Beginning to plan seriously for retirement and being a relative newbie in Norwich, it was refreshing to be introduced to a firm that places great emphasis on technical analysis and thoughtful planning. Too often, in my experience, IFAs are more concerned with style over substance but Chadwicks, through their Masterclass sessions offer real insight into investment management and retirement planning. Whether as a professional adviser or, like myself, someone looking for genuine insight into the changing times of today, I would recommend the sessions wholeheartedly.

I have been a regular attendee at Chadwick’s business seminars for several years and without fail I have found the sessions to be useful and practical on the one hand whilst thought provoking and inspiring on the other. Many advisers can put on topical seminars, few can make you feel that you want to go on to study the subject yourself!
