Greenlands Masterclass - Breakthrough Strategic Thinking


What drives the long-term success or failure of organisations?

What strategic skills do senior leaders need, and how are these acquired?

This event demystifies strategy and explores its myths and realities. The event looks at the development of winning strategies for profitable growth – via new insights, best-practice case studies and practical tools, with opportunities to apply and reflect on these during the day.

Participants will make an active contribution and leave with increased confidence to shape strategy towards innovation and breakthrough.
