Educational frameworks will be challenged at York lecture
Current frameworks for learning will be
challenged during a lecture held at York St John University on 31
The free lecture entitled ‘Learning business’
will be given by Professor Bob Garvey, who holds the chair in
Business Education at York St John University Business School.
Professor Garvey’s inaugural lecture will offer an
alternative model of education based on conversional learning.
Commenting on the lecture Professor Garvey
says “There can be little doubt that those that learn the fastest
in business are often the most successful. But, SME business
leaders are often patronised by public and private sector education
providers alike who assume they know what they need! There is
research evidence to show that entrepreneurs learn through
practical experience and prefer to learn from their peers.”
Professor Garvey is one of Europe’s leading
academic practitioners of mentoring and coaching. He has
extensive business experience across many sectors including large
and small business, the public and voluntary sectors. He has
developed many training films and contributed to international
Webinars and developed interactive training materials.
Professor Garvey is also a mentor and coach for a number of people
from a variety of organisations.
‘Learning business’ will take place at York St John Business
School at 6.30pm on Wednesday 31 October as part of the
University’s Go York events. Go York is a series of lectures
which bring together York St John University’s eminent academics,
high profile speakers and the local community for a series
of events to be enjoyed by all.
