Generation Tech the impact on global business

Watch live as world-renowned business leaders take to the stage at today’s Global Leadership Summit.


London Business School Global Leadership Summit, takes place at The Brewery in London today. The School’s flagship event – now in its eleventh year – brings together industry leaders and 600 senior executives to debate the ways in which technological innovation is changing the fabric of society and business.

Business leaders join London Business School faculty to discuss the economic impact of a mobile, hyper-connected, multigenerational workforce and the impact of Gen Y on leadership and management.

Speakers include:

  • Professor Gary Hamel, London Business School
  • Nina dos Santos, Anchor, CNN
  • Sarah Wood, Co-founder and COO, Unruly
  • Tom Hulme, Founder, OpenIDEO

Professor Sir Andrew Likierman, Dean, London Business School, said: “Technology continues to redefine the business landscape. It is an enormously exciting time for business as innovation opens up new markets, new ways to communicate and new experiences for the consumer.

But change brings with it challenge. Are we ready for the revolution in consumer behaviour? Do we have the management models to keep pace with the changing demographic and expectations of our workforce? These are among the critical questions industry leaders will address.”

Julian Birkinshaw, Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, London Business School, one of the School’s world class faculty, is speaking on a panel that will examine communication and consumer strategies for the digital age.

Professor Birkinshaw says: “Technology is changing the way companies relate to their customers; it is also changing the basic fabric of the firm, in terms of how people collaborate and how decisions get made. New models of working are emerging, and the companies that embrace these new models first will be at a significant advantage.”
