    Wednesday 27 May - The Digital Device Landscape: When to phone, when to message, when to email, when to video call

    Speaker, Paul Levy

    It’s time to get practical about digital devices at work.

    In a regular office working environment you may have internal IT strategies, rules and procedures governing how you work. In some work environments these may be adhered to, but elsewhere it’s common to see smartphones on laps during meetings, corridor phone conversations, sensitive company information being shared on personal devices, leaders and staff in various states of digital addiction, managers emailing when they should be talking, and colleagues in videoconferencing overload.

    With the COVID-19 pandemic making home-working the norm for many, we’ve never been more dependent on our devices, which risks amplifying some of the issues outlined above, so how do we bring integration and skilful use to our devices? And how do we avoid message replication and communication explosion?

    In this practical, gritty, and hands-on session targeted at businesses who have increased their dependence on digital communications, we will address these problems and questions, aiming to get you thinking about how to use digital services effectively during lockdown, and avoid the pitfalls.

    Friday 29 May - Crisis Innovation

    Speaker, Dr George Tsekouras

    Crisis can trigger innovation, transforming companies and fostering new growth perspectives. This webinar will explore the steps business executives and managers can take using innovation as a tool to deal with the unexpected consequences of crisis.

    Thursday 4 June - Exploiting Agility for Advantage

    Speaker, Dr David Francis

    We live in a time when it has become increasing critical for organisations to be agile – alert to potential disruption, quick to find and exploit opportunities, able to avoid threats and flexible enough to adapt to a different future.

    This webinar will introduce you to a seven-step work-programme that enables organisations to become requisitely agile, meaning ‘not too much, not too little and organised in the right way.’ The seven steps include; orientating, predicting, diagnosing, envisioning, scoping, customising and delivering.

    All webinars will be recorded and made available via the University’s YouTube account at a later date.
