Make It Global: Realising Your Potential

When: Wednesday 9th July and Monday 14th July 2014 09:30 – 14:30 (both days need to be attended)

Where: One Canada Square, Canary Wharf, 10th Floor, London, E14 5AB


‘Skills and abilities alone do not predict performance, but ‘what you believe you can do with what you have, under a variety of circumstances, has the greatest impact’. (Albert Bandura,

We are seeking aspiring and existing entrepreneurs, business owners of micro enterprises and SME businesses to participate in the Realising Your Potential programme.

 Programme overview

Taking the first tentative steps to realising your dreams and aspirations can be exciting. However, when change is encountered it can feel debilitating even when we’ve initiated the change for ourselves. To plan and move towards the life we aspire to, practical support is essential, to take reasonable steps forward.

Realising Your Potential draws on a growing body of work in neuro-science, educational psychology and behavioural psychology. The programme introduces the participant to the key principles and a set of practical skills, that when applied consistently and over a period of time, can show results in bringing about personal change and success.

Anchored in research, the programme; helps the participant to take stock of their current position, (re)set their direction, and begin to address their beliefs, habits and attitudes. Drawing on their own inner resources participants are better equipped to identify and move towards the life they aspire to, with higher levels of self esteem, confidence and resilience.


This is the first time, CEWE and the Make It Global project are hosting the Realising Your Potential programme. One of the key features of this event is that UELs School of Psychology is undertaking a detailed evaluation of the programme to measure and evaluate its benefits for entrepreneurs and business owners.

This is a unique opportunity to experience this already successful programme with like-minded individuals from the wider business community and contribute to the potential development of the programme as a tool for supporting micro and small enterprises, more widely.

Please note, participation is not limited to CEWE and Make It Global. If you know entrepreneurs or SME business owners that can potentially benefit, please pass on these details.

Where:Level39, One Canada Square, London E14 5AB


Any entrepreneurial business, large or small, needs to innovate and update through their products or processes to stay ahead of the game. Many of us think of innovation and updating purely as vehicles for product improvement. There are many other ways in which we can improve our performance and processes as well as the products and services in our business. Through creative, innovative thinking and pushing boundaries come new ways to stay ahead of your competitors. It is vital that you are always thinking of new ways to improve both your business and your personal development.

This seminar will give you the chance to hear from expert speakers on how to stay ahead of the game: they’ll share tips and experiences on the challenges they have faced and overcome. Our host for the evening, Claire Cockerton of Level39 and CEO of Pivotal Communications, will tell us about the new advances around London’s Tech City. In this, the last CEWE Seminar before our summer break, you will as usual, get a chance to ask questions, share your own experiences and have an excellent networking opportunity in a fantastic venue on the 39th floor of One Canada Square.
