Fujitsu Executive Discussion Evening
People Power: authority and influence in a changing world
In a world where technology is increasingly prevalent in our personal and professional lives and so much of what we do is devoid of the human touch, we have become attuned to depersonalised interactions.
At a transactional level this is all perfectly acceptable - in fact it's the norm. But when it comes to big decisions, big changes and big consequences, there's no substitute for thinking, feeling, sensing human beings.
At the next Fujitsu Executive Discussion Evening we will discuss the seismic shifts we are experiencing in the way authority and influence are exerted across business, government and society with our two guests speakers.
Fujitsu Forum 2018: Why co-creation will deliver success.
What do you need to succeed in business today? Beyond the cutting-edge technology and exciting applications at Fujitsu Forum last week, this was the question really on everyone’s mind.
We asked nearly 2,000 business leaders for their view, and the answer was perhaps comforting. Despite living in the midst of the fourth industrial revolution, people remain at the heart of success – and particularly, the innovators, ‘do-ers’ and collaborators.
That’s why the theme of 2018’s Fujitsu Forum has been co-creation for success: connecting people and organisations to draw on their respective strengths.
Throughout Fujitsu Forum, it was clear that from quantum-inspired banking to VR cancer support, the results of co-creation can be truly amazing – and it’s a process that’s always evolving.
Fujitsu Executive Discussion Evening - Leadership in a virtual age
At Fujitsu’s October 2018 event we discussed the ever-changing nature of leadership, and considered the skills and attributes leaders will need to be successful in a world where people are increasingly reliant on technology as a means of communicating with their followers.
Kevin Green, former HR Director at Royal Mail, argued that in a volatile world, the need for leadership is actually a constant, even if the environment is ever-changing. In this context, Kevin highlighted that authenticity is the leader’s must-have trait, which will ultimately engender trust and belief amongst followers.
What's in it for you ?
Fujitsu’s corporate event programmes have been carefully designed to create opportunities for you to engage with your peers on the hottest topics affecting business and technology today. In the face of unrelenting change we are all coming to the realisation our organisations will look very different in a few years - different size, different shape, different ways of engaging with our customers and employees. But one thing seems clear - we all need to adapt and collaborate in order to survive.
Through industry subject matters and thought leaders, Fujitsu’s events explore how digital transformation is demanding business models to be changed and new thinking to be adopted if organisations are to survive. We explore in detail, how technology and co-creation are fundamental in exploiting the full possibilities of the digital era.
Across the programme, there are a wide range of events to suit everyone, across different locations. Take a look at the video to understand more about what you could experience at one of our events.
