‘I’ve learned more about strategic thinking from Fred than I did in my time at Harvard Business School’ John Smith, COO, Burberry
‘You can learn more from him in a few hours than taking a strategy course over a semester as part of your MBA program!’ Rajat Sharma, Director, Business Operations, LinkedIn
Being strategic is a critical skill. It enables you to solve problems on a day-to-day basis while also keeping an eye on the long term, anticipating and mitigating opportunities and threats along the way. In a recent study conducted by Harvard Business Review, 97% of the 10,000 business executives questioned, chose strategy as the most critical leadership behaviour to their organizations’ future success.
A rocket scientist by training, Fred Pelard specialises in helping teams and organisations solve strategic problems – from the BBC to Barclays, BAE to HSBC. In conversation with broadcaster Matthew Stadlen, Fred will present a guide to strategic thinking in any situation based on 20 years’ experience training executives at all levels from leading companies across the UK, Europe and beyond. He will teach you to find your own path the right solution every time.
This event takes place at 6:30pm BST.
