For Leaders and Changemakers
The world of business is facing its biggest shift since the industrial revolution.
To navigate this world, leaders are required to give businesses a new purpose: one that is beyond profit and beneficial for all stakeholders.
This programme was designed to help leaders thrive in this new reality. By combining strategic thinking with a global context from Financial Times journalists, participants will leave with a clear strategic vision to help your business navigate and thrive in a changing world.
The programme has a flexible design, which will ensure it is the right learning solution for your business.
Participants are in control of their learning experience and can access live session or on-demand.
Through group work, participants apply their skills to solve specific challenges faced by your business.
1. ESG and reputation management
The game has changed for communications teams.
Businesses are facing scrutiny in a whole new range of areas, including diversity, supply chain and ethical data management. With the rise of the name-and-shame culture of social media, leaders also need to be alert to user-generated content that can have a serious impact on a company’s reputation.
This session will consider recent cases of businesses that have had their reputations damaged by ESG-related issues. The session will be designed to generate an open debate and exchange of ideas, and also deliver actions that can help leaders understand the context around these issues.
2. ESG and the 21st Century Workforce
Creating a diverse, agile and ethical organisation.
Employee relations, retention and recruitment have evolved. If in the past they used to be considered simply a human resources concern, they are now strategic issues. The race to find, integrate and keep the best and the most diverse talent is part of the growth strategy of any organisation.
The impact of ESG on the Millennial and Gen-Z workforce is clear: they do not simply care about salary and benefits – alignment to values is now a decision-making factor for high-potential candidates. But while businesses are forced to adapt to attract a new generation, they also need to consider the existing workforce and how to maintain stability. Striking a balance is key.
3. Ethical Dilemmas in Digital Transformation
Can we be trusted to use data ethically?
Data analytics have enabled businesses to identify hidden patterns in consumer behaviour and benefit from a deeper understanding of their market. However, access to data-rich ecosystems, combined with the pressure to deliver business results, often leads business executives and decision-makers into ethical dilemmas.
According to the European Data Protection Board, since the launch of the GDPR over 89,000 data breach notifications have been reported to national data protection authorities. Making ethical decisions is not always black and white. The aim of this session is to address key ethical dilemmas and reveal what business leaders can do to avoid the most common pitfalls.
4. Moral Money: Profit & Purpose
Shaping a purpose-driven financial strategy.
Organisations globally have signed up to ESG commitments, but are they acting?
As commercial departments have targets to meet, it is often difficult for decision-makers to honour ESG commitments when pursuing business opportunities. So how can the people that are responsible for driving growth and managing balance sheets take courage to make tough decisions?
The goal of this session is to help decision-makers identify the big questions they should be asking and align their financial and growth strategies to a purpose-driven approach.
