Strategic Innovation in a COVID World

Those companies who disrupt their industries with new business models more relevant in a COVID world will survive and thrive. We often hear about innovation in the context of inventing new products or services. One of the innovation levers of senior executives, one which can be even more powerful in transforming business success, is reinventing one’s business model. The implications of strategic innovation can be profound for customers, employees and communities, particularly if they demonstrate the authenticity and honesty to respond to the context of an uncertain world amidst a pandemic. We will explore how to do so.

Adaptability in a COVID World

We all know that we are living through an age of unprecedented rates of change. We are all well versed in narratives about landscape shifts, industry disruptions, strategy redundancies. However, familiarity with the challenge does not necessarily equal a solution. What do we as individuals need to navigate these waters? What skills do leaders especially need to develop to keep their organisations relevant and successful in the 21st century?

Lastly, our thoughts are with the family and friends of Jack Charlton. I had the opportunity to work with Jack on a number of sporting dinners in the early part of my career and he was always very kind and a pleasure to work with and was a hugely entertaining after dinner speaker.

We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.

Matthew Fisher and I have worked together for many number of years. I have always found Matt to be honest, good natured and willing to work hard always carefully selecting the best appearances to suit my personality and lifestyle. The work Matthew has delivered for me over the years has varied from schools, colleges, attending film premiers, guest speaking  to name a few all of which I have lots of memories and thoroughly enjoyed.
