French Duncan and Scottish Enterprise present Tomorrow's World Today
09 October 2015
French Duncan were proud to partner with Scottish Enterprise this week to present ‘Tomorrow’s World Today’ a free leadership masterclass led by Futurist board advisor, author and speaker, Dr Graeme Codrington, an expert on the future world of work and disruptive change.
Addressing how we can engage more effectively with our people, both customers and staff, to ensure future success, the masterclass sought to identify four key areas of change in the world of work and show attendees how to leverage the potential of their people in each of these.
Graeme Finnie, French Duncan Managing Partner, said: “This was the first time Dr Graeme Codrington had spoken in Scotland and French Duncan was delighted to have been instrumental in bringing his insights and observations to Glasgow and, in particular, to our clients and business contacts.
“Turbulence is the new operating norm. Periods of uninterrupted economic calm and growth will prove to be the exception in the next few decades, so we need to know how to build and lead companies that can fly through turbulence.
“We were delighted to partner with Scottish Enterprise to shine a spotlight on: the changing world; the changing customer; the changing workforce and the changing workplace. This masterclass provided a compelling picture of how disruptive forces are radically and irreversibly changing each of these aspects of the world of work.
“This leadership masterclass marks the launch of our own programme of change and development as we embark on an ambitious evolutionary programme aimed at making French Duncan the exceptional mid-tier accountancy firm in Scotland as we seek to anticipate market demands with the introduction of a range of significant initiatives over the coming months.”
