THEMELeading Business Transformation from the Boardroom

DIRECTORS LEADERSHIP BOOTCAMP

THEME :                       Leading Business Transformation from the Boardroom

DATE:                           September 24-27, 2024

VENUE :                       New York, USA.

 PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

A constant factor that organisations have grappled with over the years is operating in a business environment that is characterised by uncertainty and unpredictability. This is more so over the last decade because of the amazing intensity of changing technology, socio-political, economic, climate, and regulatory changes. From all indications, the ferocity of these changes would be unparalleled in the new decade, given the new paradigms of competition, increasing sophistication of stakeholders, disruptive innovations, and emerging business models. The implication of this is that only firms that reinvent themselves through constant transformation may stand the chance of surviving the tide of change in the new decade. Such firms need adept boards that will lead the needed transformation.

This programme is specially designed to enhance the capacity of directors to lead business transformation in their organisations through proactive decisions and policies that are informed by a deep understanding of variables at play within their local and international business environments.  

Great stories are for everyone even when only written for just one person. If you try to write with a wide, general audience in mind, your story will sound fake and lack emotion. No one will be interested. Write for one person. If it’s genuine for the one, it’s genuine for the rest.
