"If Culture eats Strategy for breakfast", is Purpose the key ingredient for lunch and dinner?

This event will explore the seemingly ever-increasing list of priorities for leaders in 2024 and beyond and the skills and behaviors now required from them in today's dynamic business world. 

Topics covered will include: 

• What “talent” do we now look for in our leaders and how has this changed in the last few years?   
• How do Purpose, Culture, and Ethics work together and what is the role of ESG? 
• How is the role and importance of stakeholders changing? 
• How much does this all still matter in a slower and more challenging economy? 
• How can leaders, and specifically C-suite best embrace these challenges and utilise change to deliver better business? 

Date: Wednesday, 17th January, 8.30 am
Location: The Ivy Club, 9 West St, London WC2H 9NE
RSVP: hello@theworkcrowd.com
