Summer event series 2023: building business resilience

The world is changing faster than ever before. Geopolitical events, natural disasters, economic pressures and technology acceleration continue while stakeholder expectations, market dynamics, regulation evolve.

Companies are under a huge amount of pressure to adapt, respond and future proof their businesses and demonstrate their ability to create value for all stakeholders sustainably.

Our deep dive virtual webinar series will explore how businesses can proactively respond to changes presented by rapidly-evolving artificial intelligence (AI); increasing stakeholder expectations around climate action, social issues and equality; and new policies and regulation. We will look at the macro context facing business and identify ways that leaders can navigate the current uncertainty to ultimately do better business.  

Led by Emperor’s team of consultants and strategists, the series will share cutting-edge insight from our latest research into FTSE 350 and AIM 100 reports and address the most pressing questions we are being asked. Our network of experts and external speakers will get to the heart of the challenges of today and the opportunities they present.
