Your task is to devise a way to give meaningful example and meaningful engagement to these issues.
– Andrew Halper
It’s all about people
Four business and industry experts shared their insights with the next generation of leaders.
Maggie Buggie (Capgemini) and Liz Jackson (BCMS) championed the power of people – as customers and as employees.
“It’s people that make things happen”, said Buggie (below), an expert in enhancing business performance through digital.
Technology does evolve, but human experience remains vital, she added.
Liz Jackson launched an award-winning company, Great Guns Marketing, during the year when she lost her sight, and ran this for 17 years.
She said people are often anxious of large goals, but good leaders can empower them not to fear failure.
“Unless there’s room to fail, you never hit the really big goals”, she said. “You have to allow people to step outside of their comfort zones.”
