The Development and Alumni Relations Office, in partnership with Ulster University Business School, are delighted to invite you to this virtual event.

Hear fresh perspectives from Ulster University Business School graduate and Principal of EY in New York, Grainne McNamara.

There has never been a time where the ability to react to change and to harness innovation has been so critical. The pace of technological advancement and the changing social contract is hugely disruptive.  The opportunity to demonstrate strategic leadership around new and emerging technology, more sustainable business models, cultural evolution, and the emergence of agile organizational models is equally as exhilarating. Leading companies, cities and entire countries are investing in large transformation programs to literally re-invent themselves and become leaders in the innovation race, at the same time as reducing friction caused by their business models to the environment and to society at large.

This session will explore the disruptions and the strategies that leaders can use to remain relevant in dynamic environments.
