Accuracy headlines for 2020

Welcome to 2020! We have been looking ahead to what the new year might mean from a global perspective and thinking about our accuracy skills workshops and what might be in store for our participants this year… And we’ve found some similarities…

On the global scene…

Common sense tells us we need to open our ears to Greta Thunberg’s ecological mantra, but common practice is such that it’s not going to be a quick fix.

Veganuary will appeal to all those concerned about sustaining focus on green issues.

We need to watch out for deepfake news and media pertaining to Trump’s 2020 campaign.

Will the Tokyo Olympics define new records for speed? 

Will the targets for measurable reductions in CO2 emissions from all cars be reached?

Towards the end of the last decade, wellbeing, mindfulness and meditation hit the headlines, but where will the spotlight fall on holisitic health in the next decade? Will we be concentrating on ecotherapy, blue mindfulness and more digital detoxing?

The United Nations have set out performance goals for responsible consumption and production, promoting resource and energy efficiency and sustainable productivity.

Closer to home…

Our accuracy workshops have take-home messages with some common themes:

Accuracy... It is common sense, but is it common practice

Our workshops equip participants with the skills for sustaining focus when handling data.

Our Watch Out worksheets highlight areas for personal development.

At the end of the day we seek to remind you that accuracy always trumps speed.

With over 15 years of experience in the delivery of accuracy skills training we have demonstrated measurable reductions in error rates across all sectors we work with.

Concentrating on the task at hand, recognising when concentration is failing and knowing what to do it about it, and tuning out noises and distractions – these are key skills which improve performance in the workplace.

The techniques developed through our workshops are proven to reduce your error rate and therefore increase your efficiency and productivity.
