Accelerate Places, a co-working space provider, is offering a masterclass on effective team working by the current Digital Experts Program Manager at Google on Friday 11th August at its offices on Princess Street, Manchester.

Abdullah Aydin, a global program manager who has been working with Google for over 10 years, will be hosting an exclusive event for scale up businesses across Greater Manchester, offering top tips and advice on effective team working.

The breakfast seminar on ‘improving team work’ will be split into two parts; learning about ‘Effective Teams at Google’ and then a fun yet challenging exercise for the attendees to experience the value and need for effective team work. On completion, attendees will be able to contribute to their team’s effectiveness by identifying areas of need using the ‘gTeams research’ as well as being able to enhance collaborations via active listening, perspective taking and giving and receiving feedback.

Lisa Murgatroyd, Community Manager from Accelerate Places says: ‘We are really excited to be able to welcome Abdullah to our offices and feel honoured to be able to co-host such an amazing event.

‘We have received such positive feedback from our breakfast events that we have decided to continue hosting the seminars on themes that our members highlight to us as important to them and their business.’

Businesses will be given a private tour of the facilities and invited to put any questions or queries they may have to both Abdullah and community manager, Lisa Murgatroyd, over breakfast.

The briefing is available between 8am until 10am, and as part of an exclusive offer, all attendees will be offered a free pass for the day to use the facilities at Accelerate Places.
