transforming business 2020

We are in a challenging time where we all need to draw on knowledge and skills, develop trust relationships and collaborations. The Transforming Business 2020 series is designed to support business leaders, entrepreneurs, decision makers and teamsters.

We bring together industry experts, thought leaders and entrepreneurs to guide, inspire and provide relevant information for you, your people and your business. You will certainly gain new knowledge that you can immediately apply within your organisation.

Post-pandemic working practices

Leaders need to determine what it is that they want from the new ways of working. A strategy for post-pandemic working practices needs to be developed. For this to be successful there needs to be a focus on people and technology interdependencies. A specific area of concern are the strategies for collaboration at the time of anxiety, uncertainty and remote working.

Dr Mikko Areveo has senior business experience in global financial services. He has consulted widely in the UK public, private sectors, and the Fortune 500. He is a senior academic and co-author of Strategy: Theory, Practice, Implementation, published May 2020 by Oxford University Press.

Planning amidst huge uncertainty

We discuss how leaders can set the strategic direction for their business during a time where Governments are regularly updating compliance and guidance.

Diversity, inclusion and belongingness

Evidence shows that organisations committed to Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging are better equipped to innovate and adapt to change. Conscious and unconscious biases are however still fundamental barriers to achieving a truly diverse and inclusive workplace, which has detrimental effects on well-being, talent growth and retention and business performance. Leaders need to raise awareness of these biases as well as understand how these negatively impact the organisational culture. 

Sanchia Alasia is the former Mayor for the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. An award winning specialist in equality, diversity and Human Resources. She currently works at Brunel University as their equality and diversity manager.

In 2019, Tonia received the prestigious Stevie Award, which is a top international business award for women in business. She was named “Maverick of the Year” for helping organizations create inclusive work places. 

The transformative impact of Technology

Work is being reshaped by technology. Regardless of your organisation’s size and sector, embracing technology and innovation is key to becoming an agile organisation ready to adapt to the rapid evolution of technology. 

Danny Bluestone is the CEO and Founder of Cyber-Duck, a UK based digital transformation agency fusing user centred design, UX, forward thinking web technology, a culture of R&D and lean processes.

Danny spoke at SXSW in Austin Texas about trust in digital and what brands and governments to build trust through their products and services. 

Right skilling and retaining Talent for the Future of Work

The business environment is constantly evolving. To survive in this ever-changing, uncertain and complex business environment, organisations need to build a flexible and adaptable workforce. How talent is developed will determine whether a company will create value in this changing business environment. 

Lisa Seagroatt is the Founder and Managing Director of HR Fit for Purpose.  Lisa experienced a mental health breakdown in 2015 caused by bullying in the workplace. As a direct consequence of this enforced change in her career, she then set up her own business and helps business leaders to create a healthy workplace culture by looking after their employees.

Developing Resilience in a rapidly changing business landscape

Coping with the stresses of the uncertain and ever-evolving work environment requires a resilient workforce. A focus on mental health and well-being demonstrates how a company values and supports its people. Organisations can help their employees to gain a positive attitude towards change, reducing psychological injury. How can leaders do this? How can leaders manage employee resilience and implement good practice in the workplace?

The power of gamification

Gamification in sustainability is a powerful tool to help organisations become part of the solution in encouraging sustainable social, economic, and environmental practices.
