The IoD’s May seminar, sponsored by Butterfield, will build on the key themes from our Mid-Term Debate and explore what changes in governance and leadership in the private sector can also be 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 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:
- Making swift decisions during the pandemic, despite rapidly changing data sets and information
- Governance changes could allow the government to be as agile and responsive as possible
- How the leadership challenges presented by the pandemic were managed
The debate will conclude with a discussion around which changes to working practices could be maintained in a post-pandemic era.
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.
