Jez presents at TEDxMiltonKeynes

jez rose was invited to present at the renowned tedx conference in milton keynes tedx speakerAward winning entrepreneur and renowned behaviourist captivates audience at prestigious TEDx conference.

Jez Rose, award-winning entrepreneur, internationally renowned behaviourist, and author gave a motivating and thought provoking talk at the recent TEDx conference held (on 8th May) in Milton Keynes. Leading ‘thinkers’ and ‘doers’ were amongst the prestigious line up of speakers talking to an audience who, by invitation only, were equally extraordinary – from CEOs and intellectuals to scientists and designers. Formed as part of the world renowned global Technology, Entertainment and Design (TED) conference programme, TEDx hosts a programme of events with an aim of exploring communities, connections and conversations. A non-profit organisation, TED is devoted to ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’ – a forum in which ideas that matter are showcased and shared amongst distinguished attendees. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Sir Richard Branson, Elizabeth Gilbers, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, a very select group of which Rose is now a member.
The theme of Rose’s talk; “Give A Little, Keep A Lot: Perceptions of Generosity and Greed” enlightened the audience on how we justify our own generosity to ourselves, and to others, and raised many

Sixth Form Students Encouraged To Have A Lay In – how to do better in your A-level exams

sixth form students are to start later in the day to aid exam results jez rose the behaviour expert commentsSky News today published the story that Hampton Court House, a private school in Surrey, are planning to start lessons for sixth form students later in the day. Their education timetable will start at 1.30pm and end at 7pm because they say it will better suit teenagers’ sleeping patterns, therefore, they will be more attentive and do better in exams.

Finally! Someone has researched human behaviour and neuroscience and seen that the current education timetabling is actually restricting our children – and has been for many years. Many psychologists, neuroscientists, behaviourists ad even education professionals, such as Sir Ken Robinson, have been muting this idea for a long time now. And it’s not a new fancy fad about to ruin our education system, it’s a concept based on our scientific understanding of the brain. You see, adolescent brains are immature; they are not fully developed and actually our brains don’t fully develop until we are about 23 years old. There’s another blog post there if you consider that our penal system classes an adult at age 18 but biologically they are not, which can have a significant repercussion on their behaviour, so we are actually punishing adolescents for not acting like adults when they are actually still, biologically, adolescents.

Forgive me for getting a little bit technical here but it’s important because Dr Tony Sewell, an education advisor who offers a comment in the Sky News story, is misinforming the public with his statement; I need to explain exactly why he is wrong. The pre frontal

the old community hospital set in the picturesque town of Burford, nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds.

The building offers the charity a high amount of space; training rooms, kitchens, offices, storage and even more rooms besides! But being a small charity, they just don’t have sufficient people to make the most of all of the space. As you can see from the

It’s official – Jez has been invited to speak at TEDxMiltonKeynes

jez rose the behaviour expert speaks at tedx conference ted talk in milton keynes on the theme of generosity, greed and the greater goodToday I have a real sense of excitement and privilege. I’ve been invited to speak at one of the now legendary TEDx conferences. If you’re familiar with the TED talks, in the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx… hence the ‘x’.

The theme on the 8th May 2014 is Generosity, Greed and the Greater Good and I’ll be talking about our perceptions of greed and generosity and how it affects our behaviour. Hopefully I’ll be raising some interesting and thought-provoking points and also share my own idea, which I believe is worth spreading.

I’ll be sure to post a link to my talk and share some photos with you once the event is over 🙂

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED- like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organised TED event.

It’s All About the Cake – how to create positive long-term impressions

jez rose is the behaviour expert, a motivational business speaker and in this blog talks about the importance of regular, consistent acts to impress customers and drive desirable behaviour of staff

It was my Birthday last week (29th March in case you were wondering – you can send gifts next year). Naturally I received millions of cards and there was a tailback of lorries full of gifts, snaking towards my house. Why is that? Why is it that the older you get, the less cards and gifts you get? It’s not like I’m so old that everyone I know has died. Babies and children get all this stuff they don’t appreciate the value of let alone the use of and here I am, quite capable of full appreciation of many things and yet no lorries and no sacks of cards. Ungrateful you say? Did YOU get my anything? Well, there you go.

Anyway, one person who did go to some effort was my assistant (which has prevented a P45 for another 12 months at least). Through the mail arrives a small little box. It’s the sort of size that’s intriguing. There is quite a bit of ominous instruction to open

Conlons opticians made me experience the difference! Fantastic customer service example from Conlons Opticians

jez rose spoke at the conlons opticians customer service conference who helped him source a new pair of glassesThe Conlons opticians strap line is “experience the difference” and boy did I experience the difference!

I recently was invited to speak at the annual Conlons customer service conference in Preston. It’s a family run business and if you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know I’m a real sucker for family run or owned businesses. It’s the nostalgic champion of the underdog in me. I get it from my Grandma.

Anyway, the evening before the conference I arrived at the hotel and had dinner with the management team and so impressed was I with their dedication and passion for service excellence, that I made Conlon’s MD, John Welsby, my Star Client of the Month in my customer magazine – I’ve included a snap of the page so you can read what I wrote about him and the great work they do.

So when I needed new specs, there was only one place I considered going, and that was Conlons. Now it may not surprise you that I’m quite particular about

What a diamond – the huge customer service impact a bit of time can have

jez rose speaks at a business conference on customer service as the behaviour expert and receives incredible testimonials

I spoke at the Vibrant Network first annual conference recently. Nothing unusual so far.

What happened afterwards was quite interesting. I received a card from the organiser, thanking me for my contribution. Again, nothing out of the ordinary there.

But with the card was a box. Inside the box was

The importance of patchwork… How environment affects behaviour

kelly swallow makes jez rose a patchwork chair for his office as environment plays an important part in productivity in the workplace

This is my new office chair and let me make it clear that I am in love all over again. How can you not be happy when you see that first thing in the morning?

I commissioned the fantastically talented Kelly Swallow to make me something colourful and comfortable as I spend a lot of time writing scripts, books and training programs for clients. However, it’s not so much the practicality of the chair as a functional item that I appreciate the most. It’s the design. And not for the reason you might think…

[CASE STUDY] Online e-learning training portal makes waves – Case Study 7

insider expert the online training portal for training managers, hr directors for online business training from jez rose the behaviour expert

Insider Expert is something quite special. It’s the culmination of 10 years of my work creating training resources for organisations to help improve behaviour of sales field forces, leadership teams, customer service teams and of course personal development for all staff.

During a discussion with one of my clients in 2011, he suggested I write a manual or a book, where I could collate the masses of tips, activity sheets, essays, articles, white papers and behaviour blueprints I’ve created over the years. “It seems such a waste that all of your resources aren’t being used every day by more organisations”. He had a point but I didn’t think a flat product quite conveyed the content and style – and engagement, which is where the real success of changing behaviour lies – in the way I would want it to.

So two years later of filming new videos, recording new podcasts, writing webinars and compiling the resources, Insider Expert was born; possibly the world’s most comprehensive online training portal of its kind.

[CASE STUDY] Cross-functional team work team building exercise for 500 delegates a huge success

corporate business team building activities from jez rose the behaviour expert involving a giant domino rally

Jez’s was approached with an interesting request. His client was holding an annual conference of 500 delegates and on the second day needed an activity to be designed, which would fulfil very specific criteria in the brief:

  • The activity had to involve every one of the delegates
  • The activity needed to encourage each delegate working together, where possible
  • It was to run for the entire second day of the three day conference
  • It must include an element of challenge
  • It needed to encourage working with other departments within the organisation

Jez designed a highly interactive Business Challenge, which saw 500 delegates split into teams of people they never worked with, let alone met before. A series of challenges unfolded throughout the day and the highlight for many was a giant domino rally game, using more than 13,000 dominoes to break the ice and provide an entertaining, memorable and effective metaphor for working together and uncovering skills and talents within your team.

As each team raced against the clock to complete activities, earn as much money as possible and fulfil their list of tasks, all 500 people were engaged fully for the duration. The following morning, day 3 of the client’s conference, Jez hosted a short recap and awards presentation ceremony alongside the Managing Director, complete with confetti explosion. A short video of the beginning of the awards ceremony, showing a tie situation can be seen if you click here.

Delivered on time, on budget and to testimonials from delegates and senior management such as: “the best conference ever”; “that was absolutely superb” and “I enjoyed every minute”. Jez and his team produced the content, sourced and produced resources, bespoke and personalised delegate booklets, prizes, scripts and liaised with on-site production teams to create a Business Challenge that delivered impact. One client director commented that they would have expected something of such quality to have costed at least two and half times that of the final budget.
