World Class Thinking

Margaret Heffernan and Adrian Furnham

June 27th 2017

From Good to Great and The Bigger Prize

On Tuesday 27th June 2017 at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, Margaret Heffernan and Professor Adrian Furnham will present a powerful manifesto for CEOs and managers alike. Margaret Heffernan, the best-selling author and one of the world’s most sought-after management speakers (her TED talks have been viewed by over 6 million people) delivers her eye-opening insights into what makes organisations thrive. Margaret will implore us to ditch the old model of competition and embrace a new collaborative approach. So what are the skills needed for creative collaboration and how do we hone them? Margaret Heffernan’s research identifies how individuals and organisations are finding creative, co-operative ways to work that don't pit people against each-other, but support them in their desire to collaborate. The future belongs to the people and companies who have learned they are greater working together than against one another. Some call that ‘soft’, but it's harder than anything they've done before. They are the real winners, sharing a bigger prize.

And in the morning sessions, the inimitable and brilliant Adrian Furnham, one of the country’s foremost thinkers on psychology for leaders, will share his candid and utterly fascinating take on Talent Management, Performance Management, Leadership and ‘The Paradox of Success’ - when the factors that help you climb the greasy pole can derail you.
