The IoD’s May seminar, sponsored by Butterfield, will build on the key themes from our Mid-Term Debate, and will explore what changes in governance and leadership in the private sector can be also applied to the public sector.
The Mid-Term Debate focused on how leaders - from top FTSE-listed firms to local businesses - needed to adjust their thinking and approach during and after the Covid-19 pandemic. This follow-up breakfast seminar will discuss, through a panel debate, how these learnings have been applied in the States of Guernsey - and what future changes could take place to optimise decision-making, in order to maximise the opportunities for economic recovery in a post-Covid world.
The panel – Deputy Heidi Soulsby, Vice President of P&R, Paul Whitfield, States of Guernsey Chief Executive, and John Hollis, STSB moderated by IoD Guernsey Chair Wendy Dorey, will discuss:
- How swift decisions were made during the pandemic, despite rapidly changing data sets and information
- What governance changes took place, to allow government to be as agile and responsive as possible
- The leadership challenges presented by the pandemic, and how they were managed
The debate will conclude with a discussion on what changes in working practices and approach should be maintained to capture some of the benefits that resulted from the pandemic.
The breakfast starts at 7.45am with a light breakfast in the Colborne Room at the OGH with the event concluding at 09.00am.
A certificate of attendance will be available to all attendees who pre-book a ticket.
