It has long been said that the one constant in life is ‘change’. 2020 has seen change taking place all over the globe due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Many businesses have had to change their business model, rip up their forecast and adapt exceptionally quickly to a fast-moving situation. Restaurants have become takeaways, office-based companies have moved to home-working (and some intend to stay that way), skincare and alcohol businesses are manufacturing hand sanitiser whilst fashion businesses are producing high-end face coverings.

In the second of Management Today’s Future of Work series, Leading through business change, you'll hear from a range of expert speakers on how they have adapted and grown their business by placing innovation at the heart. You will hear success stories of companies who have changed their business models and driven through change pre and post pandemic, and we will showcase companies who have completely pivoted their business model and made better margins in the process.

Learn how to:

  • Pivot your business to respond to market need
  • Ensure positive momentum in recruitment, retention and developing your workforce
  • Drive innovation through your business
  • Respond at pace to keep ahead of your competitors
