Leadership in the Age of Uncertainty: Building a Resilience Capability

The Centre for Risk Studies in partnership with Edelman & the Ford Motor Company Center for Global Citizenship

Leading economists, climatologists, and geo-political experts all agree that volatility, uncertainty and dynamic change will challenge business to become far more adaptive and resilient over the coming decade. Political instability, social media, economic volatility, climate change, the rise in power of non-governmental organisations, and decreasing trust in government, are just a few of the strategic challenges for corporate leaders and the companies they serve.

Edelman, in partnership with the Ford Motor Company Center for Global Citizenship at Northwestern University and the Centre for Risk Studies at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, would like to invite you to a roundtable discussion that will explore the dynamic changes that are challenging global businesses to rethink strategy, risk, and an adaptive mindset for dynamic decision making.
