Business leaders across the globe have found themselves working under unprecedented conditions in the last 12 months as the world has grappled with the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. From mobilising entire workforces to work remotely, moving products and services online, and changing the business offering, to being forced to shut down completely, leaders have been under pressure like never before.
As the vaccine rollout continues and lockdown restrictions begin to lift, leaders are once again faced with new challenges. What do organisations look like now and how do they need to change to adapt to new conditions? There is still a huge amount to learn.
Hamilton Forth is delighted to be hosting a virtual workshop entitled ‘Leading out of Lockdown’ presented by Atholl Duncan, author of the book ‘Leaders in Lockdown’ and chair of the Black Isle Group.
The workshop will focus on what the pandemic taught us about how we lead and how the world will change. This includes hearing directly from interviews done at the peak of the pandemic. The “Leaders of Lockdown” Include Mark Thomson, CEO of New York Times; Leena Nair, Chief HR Officer of Unilever; Alison Martin, CEO EMEA of Zurick Insurance Group; Sir David Behan, Chair of HC-One Care Homes; Gary Liu, CEO of the South China Morning Post; and venture capitalist Pocket Sun.
The workshop will explore the “Seven Themes” of the Leaders in Lockdown:
- A new age of purpose
- The new world of work
- Tackling inequality
- Global co-operation
- Re-setting the supply
- A new approach to maximising potential
