A guide to mental toughness at work and using performance psychology in the workplace.

In his presentation, Steve will focus on high performance culture and change – showing how to help others create a mindset that enables any organisation to thrive under high pressure. Drawing his lessons from elite sport, he will demonstrate that confidence, clarity and resilience are prerequisites for success.

Venture Recruitment Partners – Launch Party

The Chilworth Partnership cordially invites you to the launch event for its new sister company Venture Recruitment Partners.

Due to client demand, the decision was taken to launch the first local niche financial recruitment business focusing solely on the newly-qualified to middle management levels.  With the same vision and values as Chilworth, Venture focuses on building strong personal relationships with both clients and candidates and gaining a deep understanding of their respective needs. What better way to celebrate the launch of Venture than with drinks and canapés in the Edwardian surroundings of the Chilworth Manor Hotel?

We are pleased to be joined by guest speaker Peter Bewsey.

As well as having been an Amateur International Boxing Champion, Peter’s previous roles include Chief Executive of National Car Parks, Group Chief Executive of Chelsea VillagePlc, whose portfolio includes Chelsea Football Club, and Joint Chief Executive of U.K. Operationsforan international recruitment business.

Having coached and mentored for over 30 years to produce profitable business enterprises well as being a Non-Executive Director with 16 UK business and a further 3 in Europe, Peter is well qualified to help us launch our new Venture.

Building High Performance Teams

On Tuesday 22nd October 2013, Venture Recruitment Partners, in conjuction with our sister company Chilworth Partnership, held a business breakfast event featuring one of the UK’s top business speakers, Jeff Grout.

Listed in the ‘100 Best Business Speakers in Britain’, Jeff was formerly UK Managing Director of a leading international recruitment consultancy and Business Manager to Sir Clive Woodward. Jeff is now an independent business consultant specialising in leadership, people management, team building, peak performance, recruitment and retention issues.


“Just a quick note to you and all your colleagues for another excellent and stimulating breakfast presentation. Jeff Grout’s mastery and enthusiam for the subject of creating high performance teams was amply demonstrated with thought provoking examples. That is two Chilworth breakfast presentations that I have been to now which have easily cleared the bar of being interesting, informative and relevant.  I can’t wait to see to attend the next one.”

– Mike Rickard, Experienced Interim Finance Manager

Event – Turning the Corner?

Following very positive feedback from our sister company’s ‘Turning the Corner?’ event on Thursday 2nd May 2013 with guest speaker Dennis Turner, the former Chief Economist of HSBC, Chilworth Partnership would like to a say big thank you to the 75 guests who attended and as promised the presentation can be accessed below.

The event was a huge success with Dennis being as irreverent, informative and witty as ever, providing us with a pragmatic and relatively optimistic outlook for the British economy!
We are already looking forward to arranging our next event and will announce the details on our website in due course.
Here are some of the comments from people who attended the event:
“Many thanks for an excellent event this morning. Dennis Turner is always very good value and delivered a very impressive presentation, a great combination of clarity with humour thrown in!”
Chris Driver, Director at BDO.
“Just a quick “thank you” for organising the event yesterday. Dennis Turner was a fascinating and amusing speaker and it was good to meet with you and some of the other delegates to “network”. All in all it was a great event in a very nice location.”
Paul Evans, Managing Director at Blom UK.
“Thank you for a really interesting breakfast seminar. I have heard Dennis on two previous occasions and he retains that great ability to boil the whole economic debate down to half a dozen succinct points in a language that the audience understands …interspersed with the clear respect for his wifes shopping habits! Really enjoyed it.”
Mark Lambton, Chief Financial Officer at Drum Cussac.
‘Thank you for the invite – and for the organisation that went into such a successful event.
I enjoyed the presentation immensely – Dennis was as good as ever!’
