    Time - 10.00 am Registration and Refreshments for a 10.30 am Start

    Presenter - Roger Porthouse - Director - Latent Capability Ltd

    Topic - Dealing with Complexity and Uncertainty

    Uncertainty seems to be the watch-word of the world but issues like Brexit will seem like a side-show compared to the challenges that businesses will be facing over the next few years.  Welcome to the fourth industrial revolution:  The Digital Age has arrived and is felling industry giants as well as traditional businesses at an alarming and accelerating rate.   In this session we will be exploring the challenge and our leadership response:

    • How do you identify the complex from the complicated and what are the appropriate strategies for dealing with different levels of complexity?   
    • How do leaders make sense of this new industrial age and what they need to do to embrace it and thrive?
    • What does this mean in the way we need to be leading and supporting our people?

    Come prepared to take part in the debate and associated activities in an interactive session that will challenge your thinking and inspire new action.

What members and guests say

"You have always run the most professional network of all the ones I have ever been to. "

Simon Cocker
Voodoo Agency Ltd

"I have been a Business Network Member for many years, probably over 10 years now. When I first joined the Network it was unique. It was a relaxed and yet structured environment in which to meet like minded business people who were keen to build long standing relationships rather than score a quick sale. A huge contribution to the success of the network is owner Helen Bennett, and her handpicked franchisees who run the satellite events in other towns and cities. Helen never forgets a face, a name, a connection, and she is constantly on the lookout not only for referrals to the members but also new members to keep network fresh and relevant. I have obtained significant referrals from Network members, and have purchased services from members with great success. Even if there is not a member in your branch that can help, Helen will know someone who can. Quite simply, the original and best! We are delighted to be part of this wonderful network!"
