The Agricultural Societies Council of NSW is a peak body of Agricultural Shows in NSW. Managing conflict between committee members is a common issue across a number of Show Societies. To help our members, we engaged Catherine Gillespie, Managing Director, Workplace Conflict Resolution (Workplace Harmony Solutions) to present to the whole conference on Managing Conflict on Show Committees and conduct two workshops the following day on Managing Difficult Behaviours and Knowing Your Legal Liabilities, at our triannual NSW Country Shows Seminar.
The feedback from participants was overwhelmingly positive. Workplace Harmony Solutions were professional, engaged and well prepared.
Member Services Officer, Agricultural Societies Council of NSW Ltd 2018
We received very positive feedback on your seminar. Participants left with insight and better understanding of how to effectively manage conflict and break down those walls. Your presentation combined the perfect amount of instruction and engagement of the audience. I would highly recommend Catherine Gillespie as a speaker and presenter for future training events.
