Trans2 Performance pulls the crowds for debut motivational event
15th August 2015
A new consultancy set up to improve business performance and motivation has welcomed its first senior recruit and confirmed a capacity crowd for its debut event.
With a background in business and the theatre, Lee Green’s first major project at Trans2 Performance will be to host the company’s inaugural T2 Talks event, which will bring together high-powered and high level speakers from a range of backgrounds.
As the company’s new head of delivery and consulting, Lee will also drive development of Trans2 Performance’s future programme, including more editions of T2 Talks and bespoke projects for a growing client base.
Trans2 Performance was launched at The Deep Business Centre in June by Martin Johnson, a chief executive who founded the business to make the most of his experience from the Royal Navy and senior roles with the Butler Group and Gartner Associates.
He said: “I had held senior leadership positions and worked with some of the biggest businesses and brands, consulting on how to use technology to improve their businesses.
“We were operating at the highest executive level. The biggest part of that was to do with people, politics and leadership and that’s why we launched a performance consultancy rather than a sales consultancy.”
T2 Performance is working with professional sports teams, charities, education companies and the military, and that client base is reflected in the line-up of speakers for the first T2 Talks, which will take place on Wednesday October 7 in the Endless Oceans gallery at The Deep.
Hull Kingston Rovers vice-chairman Rob Crossland will examine the parallels between sport and the mainstream business world. Owen Hunnam and Charlie De Russet will look at innovation, drawing on their experience and achievements as cofounders of ventures including innovation crowdsourcing company Idea Drop and Yellowball creative consultancy.
Richard Sharp, Executive Operations Officer at Help for Heroes and a former Captain in the Royal Marines, will speak about leadership and resilience. Wayne O’Kell, who received the MBE for services to the military and sport, will explore the links between emotional intelligence and technical competence.
Martin said: “For our first T2 Talks event to be a sell-out less than two months after we launched Trans2 Performance is fantastic and underlines the calibre of business contacts which we have established in that time. “Most of the speakers are drawn from my personal and professional contacts and bring a great deal of variety to the programme while also embracing the overall theme of inspiration and motivation.
“Lee is an actor and lecturer who has worked with organisations including Hull College, Hull Truck Theatre and Buoyant Upholstery and he will have a key role to play as we develop Trans2 Performance and plan our future T2 Talks events.”
Freya Cross, Business and Corporate Manager at The Deep, said: “It’s easy to forget that Trans2 Performance is still a start-up business given the progress they have made in their first two months here. “T2Talks is particularly exciting. We hold many corporate events in The Deep but haven’t had anything quite like this. The fact that it became fully booked so quickly indicates there is a real appetite for a new concept in business networking events.
