Business: The Changing Landscape

What Matters

Laurie Sharp, Head of Coaching and Development at ASB, will touch on where we have come from in business, look at emerging trends and discuss ideas that have the potential to completely re-shape the business landscape we operate in. Whilst future focused, he will also acknowledges the importance of what we need to do right now to remain relevant.

This interactive discussion-style event will be capped at 15 attendees only. Whether you are completely new to the topic or have years of relevant experience, you will be encouraged to ask questions and actively contribute your perspective.
