What do tomorrow's businesses need to do to respond to an exponentially changing world?
Increased automation and connectivity are disrupting workplace practices. Employees report increasing feelings of alienation and disengagement. In some quarters, the reputation of business is plummeting, with the reckless pursuit of "shareholder returns" being blamed for increasing societal inequality and unrest. What values should guide the management and leadership of companies and organisation in the 2010s? How can the merits of "conscious capitalism" overcome the unsavoury side-effects of "crony capitalism"? And what are the implications for business life here in the UK?
This event is organised by Conscious Business UK with support from London Futurists.
