As organisations and people around the world attempt to navigate these unprecedented times, London Business School have created a free webinar series exploring what it takes to lead through uncertainty.
Hosted by Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship Julian Birkinshaw, webinars will be broadcast twice a week and will feature faculty experts discussing the most pressing topics facing the world today.
Tuesday 28 April 12.00 – 13.00 BST | Using a quarantine to improve your work and non-work relationships
Dan Cable, Professor of Organisational Behaviour
When it comes to team productivity, good relationships are essential. And when it comes to enjoying life, studies show good social relations are necessary for happiness and for living a long healthy life. What can you do to improve your social relationships, now that you are under lockdown? Science shows that the best way to improve our social relationships is to share our appreciation for others and celebrate their strengths, yet most of us focus on improving others’ weaknesses. This session will give you a specific, science-backed way to help others see who they are at their best, while you are quarantined, to build better relationships and improve your life.
Thursday 30 April 12.00 – 13.00 | Coronavirus and the economic policy response
Linda Yueh, Adjunct Professor of Economics and Lucian Cernat, Chief Trade Economist at the European Commission
How should government policies address the coronavirus crisis? How should governments and central banks set fiscal and monetary policies respectively to try and mitigate the effects of such a pandemic? This session will take stock of the measures so far and discuss what else might be required to help people and businesses.
Tuesday 5 May 12.00 – 13.00 | Responsible business in a time of crisis
Alex Edmans, Professor of Finance, Academic Director of the Centre for Corporate Governance & Tom Gosling, Executive Fellow and Partner at PwC
What does it mean to be a responsible business in the time of crisis? This might seem clear for industries most directly affected, such as supermarkets and healthcare companies, but how can every company show leadership and play its part? How can investors and ordinary citizens support and reinforce the actions that businesses are taking? Alex and Tom will collectively draw on decades of academic research and practical experience to show how responsibility can be translated from idealism to realism.
Thursday 7 May 12.00 – 13.00 | Building a resilient supply chain: Lessons from COVID-19
Jérèmie Gallien, Professor of Management Science and Operations
Through its impact on both demand and supply, the coronavirus crisis is profoundly disrupting most supply chains worldwide. Which short-term and medium-term supply-chain strategies have proven most effective to date? What are the paths for converting this unprecedented threat into opportunities for supply chains going forward? In this webinar Jérémie Gallien will review implications and learnings for supply-chain management to date and analyse current best practices for supply-chain resiliency both during and after the coronavirus pandemic.
