"Building an Ethos of Resilience: A New Manifesto for Business" - Conference

Tuesday 13th November 2012

ISRS is due to hold its inaugural conference on 13 November 2012, entitled “Building an Ethos of Resilience: A new Manifesto for Business.”

The purpose of the conference is to assess how individuals, organisations and societies can build resilience to crises. In the modern interdependent, networked world, crises are now the norm not the exception. Without understanding the true nature and reasons for these events, the risk of continued vulnerability remains. This conference will unpick the complexities that give rise to crises and offer practical and deliverable solutions to those seeking to tackle the crucial task of building resilience.

Resilience to crises is the key to the fitness of organisations in our uncertain times. This is a working event for business leaders, civil servants and academics to help guests develop practical ideas to take back into their own environment so that they can build greater personal and organisational resilience.

The symposium of world-class speakers to lead the discussions includes:

  • Tony Blair – the importance of resilience in leaders
  • Michael Gove – education is the foundation
  • John Reid – placing resilience at the heart of your strategy
  • John Browne – constant innovation
  • Michael Smyth – embracing the regulatory environment
  • Andy Haldane – financial resilience
  • Prof Paul Ormerod – most things will fail
  • Sue Campbell – nurturing talent what we can learn from the Olympics
  • Prof David Price – from silos to ‘Grand Challenges’
  • Ross Kemp – human resilience
