BHBIA Professional Development - NEW Business Skills Series

December 11th, 2023

In 2024 the BHBIA is introducing two curated collections from its Professional Development Programme and resources, aimed at providing clear and easily accessible development pathways.

The BHBIA Business Skills Series

The BHBIA Business Skills Series is a collection of workshops from the full programme that specifically support the development of project and personal skills. These skills enhance our personal impact, and lead us from being the providers of data and research to valued and trusted business partners. They are relevant to all levels of experience and span agency and client-side working, across all Business Insights disciplines.


Workshops are a mixture of face to face and virtual delivery, providing flexibility for busy schedules. There is also no set running order to the series, which means you can dip in and create a tailored training programme to meet your personal development needs. The series features training that supports practical project skills covering project stages end to end. These include project set up and management, storytelling results, facilitation skills, presentation delivery and conference presenting. Personal impact skills also feature in the series, providing opportunities to understand your own communication style and how this relates to others, in addition to increasing your confidence and skills to deal with challenge. In all instances practical frameworks, tools and tips are provided through engaging and interactive sessions where individual feedback from professional trainers is a key benefit of attending.

How does it support you?

For those in the earlier stages of their business insights careers the Business Skills Series is an ideal follow on programme of development following the Foundation Series. The Fast-track your Business Impact workshop provides bite-sized tasters of the skills covered in more depth in the Business Skills Series, which can be a useful guide for which areas you want to develop next in your career.

For those who are experienced in their role, the Business Skills Series can provide an opportunity to explore specific skills in more depth with the guidance and feedback of professional trainers in these areas. This can help you challenge or brush up on existing skills, pushing your personal impact to the next level.

Don't forget the BHBIA Skills Framework is a useful companion guide to the Business Skills Series when planning your personal development and career pathways. 

We look forwards to welcoming you at a Business Skills Series workshop soon!
