About this Event
University Business Schools are leading creators and disseminators of knowledge to support organisational decision-making, change and improvement. However, University internal practices often hold fast to their traditions and established ways of working. The pandemic has amplified the voice of Business School researchers’ in helping organisations understand change, while internally University leaders are grappling with managing rapid adoption of new working practices. Can we practice what we preach and does what we preach work in practice?
There will also be the opportunity to take part in the discussion, sharing your views on the issues currently affecting business leaders today.
