Tomorrow’s Company - How Business is Changing and why it matters
A conversation with Norman Pikavance and Dr Eve Poole
Co-hosted by The Jersey Good Business Charter
There are emerging trends in British business that we cannot ignore. Despite considerable success in many areas, companies in the UK suffer from under-investment, low productivity, low real wage growth, employees that are demotivated and disconnected from management and diminishing public support. The irony is that the returns to shareholders have also been poor.
In this, our third event of the 2019 Host conference, Dr Eve Poole and Norman Pikovance will share thoughts and idea about the current state of the business sector and how to overcome these trends through an alternative business approach which prioritises purpose, values, relationships and the long-term. There will be time for questions and comments.
Join us for lunch and a world-class discussion on the future of the company
