Strategy into Practice
Our premium Strategy into Practice seminar series is designed to give you the opportunity to gain insights of strategy within business and not-for-profit corporations. You will hear first-hand accounts from top executives on strategic challenges in their industry and how they strategically steer their organisation to compete successfully and deal with complex issues such as international growth, innovation and corporate social responsibilities. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and network after each session with the speaker, other local business leaders and academic staff from Kingston Business School. These seminars are open to the public, alumni and students.
Past speakers have included Greg Dyke, former Director General of the BBC and Lord Michael Hastings, International Director of Corporate Citizenship at KPMG. You can view a video of our last event 'Developing an outsourcing strategy to deal with economic crisis' here.
Using a framework rooted in an annual research study and drawing on case studies from the retail, travel and technology industries, Joe Tarragano will review what it means to be a digitally mature organisation. Spanning strategy, technology, culture, organisational design and marketing, he will discuss why the firms successful in the digital age are the ones that have made customer-centricity a core part of their strategy.
