School of Business Lecturer Speaks at GFSB Breakfast Event

Dr Jan Green, an academic member of the School of Business, was the guest speaker at the popular Breakfast Event.
14th October 2021
Dr Jan Green, an academic member of the School of Business, was the guest speaker at the popular Breakfast Event, this month, hosted by the Gibraltar Federation of Small Businesses.
Jan focused on the challenges faced by small businesses in establishing a sustainable discussion network and introduced divergent thinking to the audience.  Divergent thinking is a four stage process which encourages the generation of alternative and unique solutions to a business issue, culminating in writing a manageable plan.
Other practical ideas for the small business included, developing resilience, decision-making via tossing a coin, the energising effect of being outside and a recommendation to recruit an office plant for the workplace.
The session concluded with the benefits of regular journaling – which was endorsed by several of the attendees.  A lively question and answer session drew the function to a close – with a healthy exchange of business cards!
