Keynote: Diversity of Thought – embracing digital disruption and fighting groupthink
Andrew provided a perspective on “Diversity of Thought” and how that is so important to firms, particularly in the area of digital disruption, to shape your firm for the future. Diversity of Thought entertains different mindsets, enables fresh perspectives and ensures groupthink can’t take hold – essential to your firm’s culture in an ever-evolving world.
When we look specifically at how digital is disrupting professional services this is particularly true, and is where younger, digital natives are key, able to share their expertise and perspectives with their more senior colleagues. Here, Andrew will also provide his own interesting and challenging point of view on having digital natives on boards.
The MPF Summer Summit 2017 examines how leading professional services firms are shaping up to face the future, through their people and their culture.
Against a rapidly changing backdrop with emergent new technologies, younger generations entering the work place with different expectations, and increasing demands from clients, it is essential your firm is agile enough to adapt and attract the people you need to meet these challenges successfully. The positive impact of ensuring your workforce is diverse and inclusive on your bottom line is indisputable, as is the cost to the business of doing nothing.
Andrew will provide a perspective on ‘Diversity of Thought’ and the importance of this to the professions, particularly around digital disruption, to shape your firm for the future.
Diversity of Thought encourages different mindsets, enables fresh perspectives to ensure groupthink doesn’t take hold – essential to your firm’s culture in an ever-evolving world.
