How do you think business resiliency needs to change after the global pandemic? University of Southampton Business Schools hosts an evening seminar on business resiliency

Published: 18 December 2020

In a rapidly changing world, the next crisis is just around the corner. From pandemics to IT failure, from badly worded CEO tweets to cyber-crime and data loss, every business has to be vigilant and build defences against the risks they know about. But what about the things that you don’t know? If the Covid-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it is that a pandemic isn’t like we thought it would be. So, how do we systemically design and build capabilities that are ready to deal with the unknown?

On 18t November 2020 Paul Bennett, Director of Enterprise at Business School hosted an interactive session on radical new approaches to business resiliency. Gary Ford, former Managing Director within Global Technology at JPMorgan Chase (JPM), and founder of Moonshot Consultancy Ltd looked at how traditional roles need to be re-imagined, how investment in business resiliency needs to shift and discuss practical approaches that enables all parts of an organisation to be ready to prevent or respond to their own crisis.

Speaking about the event, Dr Rob Angell, who is also the Director of Internationalisation at Southampton Business School, said: "This provided such a great opportunity to involve our incoming January students in our community. They had the chance to learn from a master in Gary Ford (JP Morgan), on a critical issue right now. Being able to engage with our extensive network of industry contacts is the cherry on top. My thanks to Gary and Paul Bennett for serving up this experience".
