Strategy or a series of unfortunate events? - 9 November
A thought provoking discussion on the roles played by planning, serendipity and execution in business strategy.Using the example and experience of a high tech business based in Kingston, begun in 2001, which is entering its 4th stage of metamorphosis.
The speaker Richard Lee has over 25 years’ experience in IT & Telecoms management. In 2001 Richard set up Creativity Software, a global supplier of mobile location based service technology. This technology is sold primarily to Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) to enable commercial systems, and to fulfil their obligations to emergency service and law enforcement regulations. For example, when you make a 999 call from your mobile phone, the network needs this technology in order to allow the ambulance service to understand where you are.
