Business and People Strategy and Performance

International Conference: Trading in the New Business Landscape

  • Hybrid Events
  • October 10, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - October 12, 2022 @ 2:00 pm UTC+2
  • Athens, Greece

In-Person: 10 October 15.00 – 12 October 14.00 EEST / Online: 11 October 10.00 – 17.00 EEST

At our 2022 conference in Athens, we will explore the mega trends facing organisations as we emerge from a decade which has embraced huge technological advancement, financial meltdown, a pandemic, massive political realignment and a shift in the balance of world economic power. How do organisations adapt and adjust? How do you stay in the game? What are the operational ramifications?

Across three days of networking, collaboration, and learning, we will discover how to do business in a changing context.

Key questions we will tackle include:

  • What is the geopolitical context businesses now find themselves operating within?
  • What emerging technological trends are likely to impact organisational life? Are organisations ready to adapt to them or not?
  • How do organisations formulate strategy in complex, strange, and fast-changing circumstances? What do they need to do differently, and how do they do it? What do we really mean when we talk about being flexible and agile? How do we ensure robust supply chains? Which assumptions need to be challenged and corrected?

We will explore the practical steps organisations can take to address these challenges. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with new thinking and develop an action plan for their organisation.
