Meet The Speaker - Matt Higgins

Name and Job Title?

Matt Higgins – Resourcing and Training Manager

How do you spend a typical working day?

There is a lot of variety in my role, which I love. Any given day I could be designing or delivering training on a wide variety of management and HR topics, lecturing at a local college, or supporting our clients with their resourcing needs.

 What do you enjoy most about your work?

As I’ve said, there is a lot of variety in what I do which is always interesting. That being said, my main passion is Learning and Development. I relish the opportunity to deliver training, particularly to new managers, which is something I get to do often on our ILM-accredited Management Development Programme.

 What do you think is the biggest challenge facing workplaces at the moment?

A massive challenge for a lot of organisations is the skills gap the UK is currently facing. So many employers we speak to are struggling to recruit the right candidates for their roles, and don’t necessarily have provisions in place for training and developing their current workforce to plug those business gaps.

 What can attendees expect from your talk at the HR Club?

My talk will focus on building a high performing team, as well as relationships in the workplace. It is imperative in any workplace to communicate effectively, but so many organisations struggle to achieve this. We’re often told to speak to others as we’d like to be spoken to, but due to the multitude of individual differences we all possess this isn’t always going to be effective. One key focus is on understanding personality types so that we can better communicate in the workplace.
