**The Henley Edge is an initiative designed to bring you new learning, or to showcase emerging insight from the Business School and our partners. Some events provide new content from existing speakers, and others are deliberately experimental. We will also include learning in existing themes or topics that are being delivered in an edgy way. Come along and experience the best of what’s on offer – expect smaller group sizes, more fresh thinking, some challenging sessions and even the opportunity to participate in shaping future learning.
