Event Details

In these unsettling times, it is hard to predict what will happen next or the impact that will have on us as individuals, as organisations and as a global society.  How can we best prepare for the future?  And what forms of preparation will enable us to be… a step ahead?

In this session we will:

  • Discuss the unique nature of how Covid-19 is affecting our need for scenario planning with a diverse selection of commentators, and clarify the tightrope that this presents.

  • Present the CSL House View on what it means to prepare for multiple scenarios now in a way that maximises your future ability to drive change.

  • Provide a summary of top tips that you can experiment with going forward.


This is a follow up to our earlier session on this theme.  It is a great opportunity to plug into the content for those who missed it the first time round.  We will be getting more practical with the takeaways this time, and also hearing more from our distinguished set of commentators:

  • Chris Bird, General Counsel and Company Secretary at the Wellcome Trust

  • Ellis Hudson, CEO at Arkadia Lending and CSL Fellow 

  • Emmanuelle Roman, Global Marketing Director (Consumer Industry) at EY

  • Joanne Hippolyte, Experience Design Lead at Publicis Sapient

  • Ramkumar Chandrasekaran, HR Director at TCS UK&I

  • Yasmine Khan, Master's Student and CSL Mentee

All commentators are current members of the CSL Community.  

We hope you are able to join us.


This session is part of 
A Step Ahead - CSL's new, virtual series.  The objective of this series is to curate monthly content to help organisational leaders anticipate and respond to the future.

The content is based on CSL thought leadership, the latest trends and research and a unique process CSL has developed for "sensing the system".  This involves holding a series of sessions and interviews with diverse audiences on the same topic to clarify the underlying systemic challenge and explore which insights / best practices are most relevant right now.  

The A Step Ahead process includes:
  • Two interviews with senior executives on the forefront of change (featured in the session)
  • Two sessions with members of our diverse leadership community, the Tightrope Walkers
  • One session with our CSL Fellows, who lead organisations that serve society
  • One session with our CSL Mentees, who are in university / at the start of their career
Each seminar will consist of the following components:
  1. An upfront discussion of the relevance of the theme, led by a diverse selection of commentators (a mixture of Tightrope Walkers, one Fellow and one Mentee). CSL Presentation of key theme components, including the underlying tension (the tightrope) that the theme presents
  2. Curated interviews with speakers to bring the theme to life, including a mixture of inspiring stories and best practices
  3. CSL House View on key takeaways in relation to the theme that will enable leaders to be A Step Ahead
  4. Feedback from commentators and / or participants as a whole
The themes for these sessions have been chosen based on two focus groups and a survey with our members.
