LOCAL business consultant and motivational speaker Andy Hanselman is to host 12 seminars in one day in aid of the Master Cutler’s Challenge.

The SeMinARATHON is On Tuesday June 21 with the first at 8am and the last at 7pm at The Quadrant Business Centre on the Parkway.

In between, Andy will be doing 10 different ‘laps’ in 10 local businesses. He is inviting the staff of these businesses to join him on their own ‘lap’ at their offices - in reality it’s a 45-minute seminar on a subject that they choose, before he heads off for the next challenge.

The SeMinARATHON is part of this year’s Master Cutler’s Challenge where the focus is all about Challenge leading to Achievement – all money raised will go to helping improve the employment prospects of young people in the Sheffield region.

“Our whole ethos is about challenging organisations leading to achievement, so this just seemed a natural ‘fit’ for us” explained Andy’s ‘coach’ Jill White.

There has already been a good response with commitments from organisations such as B Braun Medical, Kennedys and BHP. But Andy is keen to get more firms on board.

He said: “We’re delighted at the response we’ve had so far. We’ve also had requests from banks, some public sector organisations and several of Sheffield’s leading forward thinking businesses and business networks. Each ‘lap’ consists of a bespoke seminar targeted at the organisation’s individual needs and relevant to their people. So far we’re looking at sessions covering customer care, improving competitiveness, leadership, building better teams and standing out from the crowd.”

The first and last seminars are open sessions for local business leaders.
