Breakfast Briefing series
The Executive Education Breakfast Briefing series is just one way in which we are engaging with the local business community and wider society.
The series offers business practitioners, policy makers, media, and other stakeholders, the opportunity to hear our latest research from across a range of business and management themes. Our diverse and inspiring speakers represent the world of academia and business practice. They bring with them new insights and new perspectives to challenge your current thinking and stimulate debate.
Breakfast Briefings go Virtual
23 April 2020 represented a milestone in the evolution of our Breakfast Briefings, when, for the first time, we held an event online. Driven by circumstances beyond our control, and with face-to-face gatherings evidently impractical, it was decided that we should take the plunge, and see if there was an appetite for the exchange of information from the comfort of one’s front room.
Little did we know at that point how this enforced change would alter our approach to planning subsequent events. Of course, it will never be a perfect reflection of the briefings conducted live in the Executive Education suite, where attendees are able to network with each other, and engage with presenters in greater depth at the end of the events.
The positive side is that our guest speakers have joined us from further afield than ever before; Dr Sharon Moalem presented for us from Tbilisi, Georgia, and we enjoyed James Timpson’s summary of 'Timpson’s Covid Journey' from his office in Manchester. Equally, we are now welcoming attendees from locations nationwide, as opposed to the geographic restriction to those people who were able to reach the Business School for an 08:00 start for a live event.
Our online Briefings since April have attracted over 2000 attendees, but if you’ve missed any of the sessions, or would like to review what was discussed, please look at our 'Previous breakfast briefing' section below.
Join our Executive Education Community to receive invitations for future events, Breakfast Briefings, course information, and our monthly newsletters.
We are always keen to hear suggestions for new topics and themes for future briefings and welcome feedback on the sessions:
Recent topics have included gender pay disparity, building innovation in to organisations, tempting talent in to business, and information management and organisational liability.
