The Next Organisations

Free Event • Registration Required

The organisations we work in today have evolved to meet the needs of their time. What will the organisations of the future look like? What are the early indicators that are apparent now if you look for them that organisations may be structured differently to better meet the challenges of our increasingly fast paced, connected and complex world.

In this session we will share the evolving trends in organisational development and explore what this could mean for us in terms of human development if we are to meet the needs of the Next Normal.


"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea." - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry


Graham is a Board Level facilitator/coach/presenter with a passion for leadership that enables others to succeed. He combines 10 years as a Royal Marine Commando with 19 years in Organisational Development. An alumnus of Warwick Business School FTMBA in the class of 2000. He has worked all over world for FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 clients. Over the past 12 years Graham and his colleagues at Sykes Fairbairn have supported the Business School in Leadership and Team Development integrating the practice of leadership with the academic theory. This work has now evolved into the highly regarded Leadership Plus Module of the FTMBA.

He is currently working with Executive Teams in the insurance industry to enable them to be fit for the digital future.  Confronting their cultural norms, building trust, enabling positive conflict and emancipating the workforce to enable them to thrive in a fast-changing world.

Despite being Scottish Graham now lives in the South West of England. Away from work Graham loves to indulge his passion for rugby (though sadly the contact version of the game is behind him) and the outdoors whether in mountains, rivers or the sea he is equally happy.
