Description

Event description:

Many organisations develop a great strategy but then fail to implement it. In most cases, this is because of "the way we do things around here" - a culture guides how people think, feel and act, and thus drives performance at different levels - organisational, group and individual. But how do we create a culture that performs and does not "eat strategy for breakfast”? This event focuses on this controversial topic from both academic and practitioner perspectives.

This is the fifth in a series of “From Research to Practice” seminars jointly organised by Kingston Business School and the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). The key feature of these seminars is that they bring together academic experts from Kingston University and leading practitioners.

Speakers:

Annette Andrews, Director of Human Resources, Lloyds of London

Annette joined Lloyds in January 2015 as HR Director. She was previously HR Director for the UK at Catlin. She worked closely with the UK business to develop the supporting HR strategy for the UK. Prior to this, Annette spent six years at Lloyds Banking Group, including three years as Head of HR in North America. Annette started her career in HR as a graduate at Ford Motor Company, completing 14 years in the Manufacturing Business and then four years in Ford Credit, the Financing and Insurance business. Annette has a BA combined honours degree, an MBA and is a Fellow of the CIPD.
