Brits in Business is a dynamic and informal networking group where individuals help each other to generate business opportunities. It focuses on the British entrepreneur, but is open to all Anglophones in business.
Brits in Business was created in 2005 by UK Trade & Investment in Geneva and a group of British entrepreneurs who felt they lacked a forum to learn from other entrepreneurs, to share business ideas and to make new contacts.
Our evening events include elevator pitches, speed-networking and guest speakers who are invited to share their experiences.
Why do teams fail and what can you do to avoid it?
The Five Dysfunctions of a Team has become the world's most definitive source on practical information for building teams. The model has proven effective for organisations of all sizes — from start-ups to mid-market businesses and Fortune 100 companies. The model outlines the root causes of politics and dysfunction on the teams where you work, and the keys to overcoming them. Counter to conventional wisdom, the causes of dysfunction are both identifiable and curable. However, they don't die easily. Making a team functional and cohesive requires levels of courage and discipline that many groups cannot seem to muster.
