This virtual event on the morning of 22 July 2020, led by Mikael Down, Executive Director for Assessment and Insights at the BSB, will focus on technology and organisation culture.The BSB has continued to explore the findings from firms who, alongside their participation in the annual BSB Survey in 2019, also took part in our more detailed focus groups on the theme of technology and organisational culture. Insights from interviews and focus groups provided us with a wealth of valuable data that we will share more widely for the first time during the session.
The event will explore three decades of disruption and ask what have we learned and what comes next? As we emerge from the COVID crisis, is this a genuinely disruptive moment or just another tweak to our constant uncertainty? Is there any longer any such thing as “the new normal” or is this just our new every-day?
Panellists Mikael Down, Banking Standards Board; Nikolas Kairinos, Founder, fountech.ai; and Professor Joanna Bryson, Hertie School, Berlin will discuss. The conversation will be led by Professor Sir Nigel Shadbolt, Principal of Jesus College, Oxford; Chair, the Open Data Institute. For further information or to register, click here.
