The Lawrie Croxson Memorial Lecture: Managing change

Everyone is struggling with the same issue: What's next, and how shall I respond? For most of human history major change has occurred over long and manageable timeframes... from hundreds of years to decades.

Now big changes sometimes arrive by a tweet. The world is constantly turning itself inside out and upside down, and it’s doing that faster and faster and faster.

In this session Nigel will talk about why the world is changing so quickly, what it means for anyone trying to run a business, and some things you can do to get match fit for the Revolution Revolution. Disruption is the new same old, so getting ready for it is vitally important.
