As part of the 2021 JCI Sheffield leadership learning program, we warmly welcome Jon Covey to talk to us about the process of sales enablement.
Most businesses can win a prospect’s business when they get a meeting – however, there’s a problem. Getting the prospect’s attention and booking the appointment is the challenge.
Sales enablement is about accelerating this, improving it, and making things more efficient. Any business wanting to compete in today’s marketplace must understand the importance of aligning marketing with sales.
When you have access to the right information, tools, and content, you can effortlessly get your prospects attention and book more meetings.
In this workshop, Jon will show you how to get clarity over your Ideal Customer Profile, create attention-grabbing messages and develop a sales engagement cycle that turns cold suspects (those who don’t know you) into hot prospects (those wanting to work with you) so you can book more meetings.
[This session is being run as part of the JCI UK Training Tuesday program – JCI members across the country and indeed internationally are welcome, as our non members].

Facilitator
Laura joined as a member of JCI Dublin in 2012 and has relished the numerous learning experiences she’s had through JCI and the opportunity to meet so many amazing people though different roles she held on a local, national as well as international level.
Laura has discovered great wisdom and joy in dancing, in yoga and in meditation.
In recent years she went to Rishikesh in India to do a yoga teacher training course, and perhaps one of her greatest learnings had been that ‘yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self’ and it is really comforting to listen to your inner self.

Change begins at home. All it takes is one idea. One movement. To slow down the damage being done to the Earth and it’s precious ecosystems.
As part of the 2021 JCI Sheffield leadership learning program, we hear from JCI Sheffield member and sustainability champion Ryan Pilkington on Earth Day 2021.
Earth Day, celebrated on 22nd April each year, is the annual event dedicated to awareness about the various environmental challenges that face our planet.
Change begins at home. All it takes is one idea. One movement. One step in the right direction to start a chain reaction for positive change.
All over social media in recent times we have seen the climate strikes become a turning point in history. The population, and especially our generation, are starting to become aware of the damage being done to the Earth and it’s precious ecosystems. Together we can stop animal extinction. We can stop the use of fossil fuels completely, we can stop animal testing and so much more.
But what do we need to be able to achieve these dream like goals?
We need leaders in sustainability. We need people in our communities taking the issue into their own hands and being the force for good. We need people with ideas, hopes and goals for a sustainable life at home and at work. This may sound like a pipe dream, but together, step by step, we can achieve a sustainable future.
In this session we will take a look at:
* The basics of the concept of sustainability and what it means;
* The impact we are having on our planet;
* An interactive quiz to test your knowledge of sustainable living;
* Tips for every area of work and home to give you your first steps.
If you have an interest in sustainable living then this training session is perfect for you.

JCI Sheffield is delighted to hold a British Sign Language (BSL) taster event for Deaf Awareness Week.
In this interactive session, we’ll learn the BSL alphabet and everyday greetings. We’ll also share resources for learning more about BSL and Deaf culture.
Modern-day BSL is used by over 120,000 adults and 20,000 children. The exciting and expressive language uses a mixture of hand signals, body language and lip pattern to communicate.
As well as being extremely rewarding, studying BSL can boost your communication and memory skills.
Learning even a few phrases in BSL can help break down language barriers and make your events more inclusive.
JCI members and non-members welcome.

08th June 2021 Ost-West-Straße 32, 18147, Rostock, Germany Event type: International

The 2021 JCI European Conference will take place on a cruise ship and is therefore ideally suited to maximize all possibilities to create “PartnerShips for our Future”.

Because very few hotels in Europe can provide the required number of rooms, attending amazing conferences in amazing cities requires conference participants to split up between many different accommodations and to switch locations.

To charter a cruise ship on an exclusive basis solves this challenge: JCI Europe will be provided a “hotel” with 1,035 rooms for up to 2,566 people for the entire duration of the conference, not to mention a huge theater, various restaurants and bars, many different ways to work out, and a number of other facilities.

Within the family atmosphere of a cruise ship, diverse young people from all over Europe can create even more sustainable impact. Of course this “hotel” will not stay in port! According to the specific route chosen, we will be able to visit three foreign ports: Gothenborg, Oslo and Copenhagen. While members of the regional JCI chapters will be leading tours of their respective city and region for many of the participants, the program on board continues. Delegates will be able to attend the General Assembly without having to take part in the cruise – but most will choose to set sail!

The Conference Organizing Committee is confident it can offer the entire cruise, including the conference program, at great value and very attractive pricing. Every participant will enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience, an event that may never be repeated again – at an all inclusive price.

The situation is being closed monitored in terms of international health guidance
