Day 2 will be hosting a series of business leaders and experts addressing the big topics such as net zero, the levelling-up agenda and how we need to update our skills base to adapt to the future of work. We’ll also be considering how Gen Z and millennials are driving change – and how business leaders pursue a more fulfilled and balanced life in the face of information overload.
The day will be introduced by our incoming Director General, Shevaun Haviland, and Rt Hon Edward Miliband MP will join us for the political Keynote.
Other highlights include a hugely relevant discussion around how we can redefine and balance the new demands on the way we live and work. How has the pandemic affected our caring responsibilities, the new urban-rural divide and the enormous impact on our cities and town centres?
Our Day 2 Keynote explores how young people are a force for change, with Lewis Iwu, CEO of Purpose Union, who seeks to consider how millennial and Gen Z consumers, employees and activists are driving change from the bottom up.
How is the government’s levelling-up initiative going? We discuss how it should be addressing inequality in underperforming and left-behind parts of the UK through a programme of infrastructure development, investing in education, skills and scientific R&D.
A Leader to Leader session around innovation and new skills sets out to identify and address the weaknesses in our skills base to prepare for new ways of working, and there will be a session on diversity in leadership representation.
In the year that Glasgow hosts COP26, our Leader to Leader In Conversation examines how businesses of all sizes can take steps towards meeting their net zero targets.
