  • Rachel Blackburn is to be featured in an Open University Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) about the benefits of networking after an intensive day of filming on Tuesday 10th May.

    After welcoming a film crew from Evans Woolfe Media in London to the US2U Consulting head office for one-to-one filming, we then went on location to the Norfolk Chamber of Commerce's Doing Business in Dubai conference on the outskirts of Norwich to witness networking in practice.

    The day finished at the University of East Anglia's Enterprise Centre where Rachel was a Young Enterprise judge to determine which of their companies would progress to the national finals in London. Filming was concluded with the importance of an elevator pitch - shot in an actual Enterprise Centre elevator!

    The MOOC is titled Business Fundamentals: Effective Networking and can be accessed through the Open University's Future Learn platform.

  • Rachel Blackburn delivered a talk on Developing Your Influencing Skills in Dubai on Wednesday 25 November on behalf of the British Business Group.

    Capturing the attention of an audience of around 30 business people at the Capital Club in the Dubai International Financial Centre, Rachel discussed the challenge of influencing others, covering concepts such as influencing styles and the Organisational Development Process.

    The talk was well received, with one business account even live-tweeting coverage! @SMARTERtcm commented:

    "How to deal with and influence 'challenging' or 'difficult' people. Great checklist from US2U Consulting to build relationships"

    "Adopt a 'Zero Tolerance' to moaning in your organisation. Love this! #influencingpeople"

    "4 Steps to Assertiveness from US2U Consulting. Simple as that!"

    "The old adage "don't bring problems, bring solutions" is still a good way forward!"

  • Developing the Middle East Learning and Development theme, Rachel Blackburn delivered a Personal Development Planning and Leadership Coaching Project for a client in Media City, Dubai.

    "It was great to share some of our expertise with our international clients and working on the 37th floor is in complete contrast to working in rural Norfolk in the UK!" said Rachel.
