Comments / {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}} Views / Tuesday, 31 December 2019 01:41

A training on Business Excellence will be conducted at the Mövenpick Hotel on 10 January 2020. The session will cover the areas of time management, good governance, workplace ethics, workplace communications – all aimed at creating cohesive teams to increase the productivity in the organisation. The session will be conducted by Nirmalan Nagendra and Anjale Jayawardena, with experience in exponential growth in productivity by transforming their teams.  

The half-day session aims to take the audience on how to navigate through their corporate career by being authentic leaders, employees and team members. It will teach the participant on how to manage time effectively, plan their day by prioritising their deliverables and delivering something that is 80% accurate on time rather than delivering something that is 100% accurate past its deadline as well as practices of good governance, being a leader and being empathetic. 

Other topics that will be discussed are work-life balance; the importance of making time for family and friends in this constantly connected world, taking time off from work, to having a happy and healthy marriage as well as how to work with integrity at work by practicing honesty, transparency and build good relationships with your team as well as others in your organisation. 

When building relationships with colleagues, it is important to build authentic relationships that are built on mutual understanding, empathy and transparency. The session will touch on ‘Working Out Loud’ aimed at helping create meaningful relationships – starting with colleagues which can also be extended to your friends and family. Working Out Loud will also help you achieve a specific goal or a set of goals you have set for both your personal and professional life. 

The training is done to educate teams on how to be great managers as well as individuals in your team, reduce friction and get work done effectively. The training will be held on 10 January 2020, at the Mövenpick Hotel. For tickets and inquiries, please contact Charmaine on 0779448210. 

Nirmalan is a veteran hotelier with over 33 years of experience. His expertise is spread throughout his various stints in Park Hyatt Jeddah-Marina Saudi Arabia, Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi, Al Aqa, Kwait, Forte Nassau Beach Bahamas and Sandy Lane Hotel Barbados. Nirmalan is currently a member of British Association of Hospitality Accountants, the Institute of Management UK, and the Hotel and Catering International Management Association. He is a highly result oriented professional, who believes in cohesive work environments, hiring for attitude, on-time delivery with 90% accuracy rather than late delivery with a 100% accuracy rate. Nirmalan believes that team work certainly makes dream work.

Anjale is a graduate in International Business, with a strong PR and marketing background. Having worked in the field of IT across both international and local organisations, she has helped transform both internal and external communications and built cohesive teams.
