The Great Management Reset

Hosted by Jon Foster-Pedley  |  Dean and Director – Henley Business School

Jobs have changed significantly over the last few years. It’s not only COVID, nor the rapid change of technology and the adoption of industry 4.0 and beyond, nor the massive international challenges of climate, population and destruction of our natural world, but it’s also the evolving nature of global politics, new ideas of capitalism and new expectations people have of prosperity and quality of life.

This means what we call work and what we call jobs have changed for ever. Research shows that in some countries only half the current workforce has the skills for the current economy let alone for the emerging future economy. Education institutions haven’t proved they can deliver in time and we have to make radical changes – changes in the nature of technology,  of capitalism, of business of international connection and collaboration.

Jon will be talking about the seven critical skills and attitudes we need to reset work and to navigate a successful future and, build a better world.
