On Wednesday the 11th of September, OSR founder Olive Strachan will be speaking at the Natwest Entrepreneur Breakfast Seminar in Manchester. The seminar will focus on the topics of engagement and flow, and how businesses can use the FISH! Philosophy to really engage their staff.
At this point, you may be wondering what exactly the ‘FISH! Philosophy’ is. It may have an unusual name, but the big idea behind FISH! is universally pertinent – quite simply, the philosophy is built around the assumption that people do better work when they enjoy their jobs. As for the peculiar piscine name, that’s because the FISH! Philosophy started in Pike Place Fish Market, Seattle, a stall that’s become internationally renowned for its excitable fishmongers and outstanding customer service. The staff shout orders to each other, fling the customer’s fish around the stall, and generally do everything in their power to put smiles on faces.
The aim of Natwest’s seminar is to get businesses thinking like the Pike Place fishmongers. Olive’s speech will be all about ‘flow’ and how to achieve it – if you’re enjoying your job, and thoroughly engaged with the task at hand, you’ll get into the ‘flow’ and lose all track of time. This is the perfect state of mind for productive, creative work, and the Entrepreneur Breakfast will help you and your employees to get in the zone, achieve a pleasant sense of flow, and do better work than ever before.
The Natwest Breakfast will take place on the 11th of September on the 7th floor of the RBS Building on Deansgate, Manchester. Breakfast refreshments will be available from 8am onwards; Olive Strachan’s speech will begin at 8.30. To RSVP to this event, email Julia Chisnell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
