Joining Paul Lindley at University Centre Shrewsbury on Thursday 13 February 2020, at 5pm, will be four local business thought leaders:

  • Chairing the event: John O’Brien MBE, Shropshire’s bestselling business author, EMEA Head of the One Hundred marketing agency, working with major corporates on strategy and communication needs;
  • Mark Walton, local-based serial entrepreneur and CEO of the paradigm-shifting, employee-centric, customer support company Sensee;
  • Kate Holbrook, founder of Turtle Doves, a Shropshire-based, award-winning ethical ‘recycling’ business which has received national recognition; and,
  • Gary Dee, Shropshire-based UK Managing Director of Bostik, the global manufacturer of adhesives.

What are the trends affecting the workplaces of tomorrow? How does humanity and people-centric thinking potentially empower businesses with their staff and customers? How does technology, Gen Z and millennial thinking, localization, ethical and sustainable thinking affect our attitudes to business and offer routes to success?

Join us for a thought-provoking discussion on the evolution of the workplace. The event is free, but booking is strongly suggested. You may book your place through UCS’ website at: https://www.ucshrewsbury.ac.uk/public-events
