Guests will be welcomed to the school’s stunning new executive education centre by Professor Fiona Devine, Head of Alliance Manchester Business School.
Simon will talk about agile leadership, drawing on extensive research as well as real-world examples. This will be followed by a panel discussion chaired by Mark Healey, Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Strategic Management at the business school. Simon will be joined on the panel by two outstanding agile leaders: Angela Spindler, CEO of leading online retailer N Brown, and Tony Foggett, CEO of digital agency Code. Angela and Tony are both quoted in The Agile Leader book and will share their experiences of transforming their own organisations around the changing needs of their customers.
Simon recently became an Honorary Professor at Alliance Manchester Business School, having previously achieved MBA and DBA qualifications there. His doctoral research led to the publication of his first book, Connected Leadership. The Agile Leader builds on Connected Leadership to explore how organisations can achieve sustainable success in a fast-moving, unpredictable world.
