The Leadership Series -Leadership and Managing Change - 14th November 2018

Leadership is crucial during a time of organisational change. Given that change is now a continuous process for all businesses, boards and directors need to be on top of all aspect of change programmes.

Drawing on their experiences the panelists will discuss topics such as the relevance of culture and values, ensuring outcomes meet ambitions and how to manage uncertainty.
