Event Overview

Despite every leader acknowledging the necessity to build a culture of innovation in their organisation, few know how to turn this aspiration into reality. Now, more than ever, leaders need to come to grips with the power of innovation to “future-proof” their organisation. By acquiring a deep understanding of what an innovation culture looks like and their role in fostering such a culture, leaders can position their organisation for success.

The 2017 Senior Executive Forum brings together the latest research, the most contemporary thinking and practical insights from the real world to this year’s themes of Leadership, Strategy and Innovation.

Internationally respected global thinker Professor Linda Hill is joined by her Harvard Business School colleague Professor Alan MacCormack to lead this year’s Forum. They will challenge many of the myths around the strategy of innovation and explore why innovation requires a different kind of leadership. The superb facilitation skills of both Professors Hill and MacCormack will challenge and engage participants to think deeply about how they can and must inspire a culture of innovation in their organisation.

The combination of topics – Leadership, Strategy and Innovation – plus the learning approaches of case studies, peer to peer discussion, debate and analysis mean the Forum is exclusively for senior executives and business unit leaders who are at or capable of reaching the most senior levels in their organisation.

Senior Executive Forum 2017 offers practical insights and pathways on how you can transform your organisation to be more innovative. We encourage you to book early and take advantage of the Early Bird Offer to secure your place.
