UNTHINKABLE: Tools for confident leaders in our age of disruption
Speaker: Tom McCallum, Global Partner, Shirlaws Group
Chair: Sandy Kennedy, CEO, Entrepreneurial Scotland
Member level: Growing|Leading
Event type: Masterclass
Have you spent time and resource creating a 3-5 year strategic plan for your business? According to recent leadership research, within nine months of a strategic plan being produced, it won’t be worth the paper it is written on. In recent years, the pace of change in the business world has accelerated and the predictability of outcomes and variables has decreased to the point of “unthinkability”. We are now living in a new normal, where disruption in technology, geopolitics and other areas render many tried and true leadership tools of limited value.
At this event, Tom McCallum will lead you through a workshop that will give you new tools and understanding to regain control, remain a confident and effective leader, recognise the hidden assets within your business and how to leverage them for disruption. Tom is a founding member of the GlobalScot network and is a passionate advocate for the power of entrepreneurship as a mindset to elevate confidence and performance across all facets of life and the economy in Scotland. Born and educated in Scotland, he lived in the Cayman Islands for over 25 years before moving back to the UK this year, and has worked with leaders around the world in many industries. He has always stayed connected to Scotland and has sought to provide value and impact along the way.
