New ‘Beyond the crisis’ webinars announced
Following the success of the extremely popular pandemic webinar series, five new webinars have been announced. This will see the focus shift to anticipating future challenges that will arise as we face the ‘new normal’ of a post-pandemic world. The format has also been adapted based on feedback: each faculty member will now be joined by a guest, giving an additional perspective to each topic.
Randall Peterson, Professor of Organisational Behaviour, shared his insights in the first of five new webinars last Tuesday. His focus was 'Leadership challenges in times of profound uncertainty'. Watch the webinar on the School's YouTube channel here.
