The world is changing fast and in this presentation Professor Lynda Gratton, one of the world’s leading authorities on work outlines what she has observed and how we might best move forward. Drawing on her extensive research and consulting insights she describes the four key challenges we now face and how best to transform these challenges to opportunities. She shows that what it means to lead is fundamentally changing and describes how building on the upside, experimenting and co-creating will be crucial.
Based on his 2020 research into 1,500 organisations Dr Chris Brauer introduces blueprints for competitiveness and growth in UK organisations in the private, public sectors and different markets innovating through the pandemic crisis, Brexit, and the rapid acceleration of digitalisation.
There will be a strong focus on the requirements for talent, tech, future readiness, and innovation in UK organisations, and with lots of other focus areas around opportunities and challenges.
What are the traits of great leaders in a crisis? What strategies make the difference between being endangered, surviving, challenging, or frontrunning through the pandemic and beyond? What are the strongest links between strategic decisions and bottom-line performance? What can you do differently in managing your technology and talent? In this timely and high energy talk, Dr Chris Brauer, Director of Innovation at Goldsmiths, University of London, answers these questions and more in revealing the results of a study with over 1,700 organisational leaders and 2,500 employees of every scale, size, and industry in the UK conducted through the spring and summer of 2020.
