As part of the ICE London Membership offering we are organising a series of events aimed at ICE members within 0 – 10 years post your professional qualification, although open to all. The purpose of the events is to engage our members and provide opportunities for them to develop ‘softer’ skills and discuss the challenges typically faced once they are professionally qualified. If you have just received qualification, you have been qualified for a while or you haven't completed professional qualification, but you are in this approximate stage of career, this is for you!

Many people may now be in a more senior position within the team and managing more people/responsibility, looking to bring in work to their companies, forge new contacts, discuss hiring practices, managing wellbeing of a team etc. There are many engineers in this ‘post-professional qualification’ stage of career and the ICE Coffee Break series of events is here to support you.

Dave Stitt Bsc CEng MICE FCIOB MCMI FRSA PCC, author, leadership team coach and executive coach will present and start a discussion on “The essentials of deep and deliberate delegation for new and incumbent managers”. The discussion topic will be based around how to:

  • Avoid the trap of being a micro manager and the associated distress
  • Learn about delegating in a deep and deliberate way and
  • Where to find out more so you can step towards being a great manager.
