In the current low growth environment organisations must find new markets and develop new products and strategies that increase their profitability and growth.


How do organisations best adjust to new low growth realities and what opportunities can be found to continue to thrive and prosper? This will require insightful strategy from directors and management to foster innovation and growth in an era marked by globalisation and digital disruption.

Please join us for this Directors’ Briefing where we will discuss:

  • Current economic trends
  • How “traditional’ markets are innovating and growing in this environment
  • What is the role of the board in growth strategy, managing economic risks and building resilience
