Henley Great Minds Event - Ecosystems of human-tech hybridity - Deep Learning & Human-Centred Leadership

Henley Great Minds Event – Ecosystems of human-tech hybridity – Deep Learning & Human-Centred Leadership

A powerful half-day with thought leaders from diverse backgrounds to explore the nature of leadership in times of extreme opportunity. In partnership with one of the top rated graduate business networks in the world.

Looking into the crystal ball of leading businesses into the future, organisations, top-management-teams and even our society as a whole are faced with deep questions and challenges. Many of these challenges are paradoxes in themselves, such as satisfying investors with a healthy bottomline and yet be socially sustainable, have a routine and yet be innovative and embrace change.

At this Great Minds Event we touch upon some of the challenges modern organizational leadership is facing with regard to embracing technological advances and using tech as a platform for sustainable business practices. Leading people-tech hybrid ecosystems means leading their interfaces and managing the interactions between people, artificial intelligences, autonomous processes, as well as machine and deep learning, all embedded within socially-relevant networks, such as social platforms.

The questions our expert keynote speaker will discuss and explore are:

  • Influence and Opportunity AI & Deep Learning have on organisational change
  • Which new foci and constellations for leadership and change are most pressing?
  • Does technology lead the change?
  • How important is the human factor and leadership?

The University of Reading and Henley Business School in Germany are closely monitoring the situation regarding the outbreak of coronavirus COVID-19 and we have established a senior group to direct the University’s response.

Our priority is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all our staff, students and visitors and minimise disruption to University activities. We are following all government advice including health advice from Public Health England, the Health Authorities in Germany and travel advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as well as the German Foreign Ministry.

For all programme participants and customers of Henley Business School Germany, we advise that it remains safe for most people to continue to go to work, school and other public places, as long as you comply with the guidelines provided by state authorities, of which a list of links can be found here below. We only ask you to stay away from public places (self-isolate) if advised to do so by a medical professional or other competent authority.

So far we have not been advised of any wider health implications for programme participants in Germany-based courses. However, if you have been traveling recently to affected areas and suspect that you might have been exposed to the virus, please do notify us early so that we can put in place the necessary measures for alternative access to course materials and lectures as you may need to self-isolate and not be able to participate in face-to-face workshops.

Information for the public on the outbreak of coronavirus, including the current situation in Germany and information about the virus and its symptoms is available on the Bavarian Health Ministry info page on the COVID-19 outbreak (in German).

We continue to reassure our customers that for the time being our programmes continue to run as planned. We have equipped our offices with extra hand sanitizers and increased the level of cleaning in the workshop spaces. Should you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. Should the situation change, we will inform all current programme members and customers directly as well as via this website.

We thank all our customers for their support and understanding in these trying times.
