Transforming Higher Education – for the 21st century workplace

Higher education plays an important role in life, preparing students to thrive in the workplace or entrepreneurial world. While consulting in this sector, I have been so excited by potential but often witnessed important transformative initiatives that would help meet student needs being squashed by internal politics and tradition. My guests include Tosin Adebisi who works as Senior International Lead at the University of Sussex, the world leader for Development Studies. He specialises in using education as a transformative tool and leads an intrapreneurship project to position Sussex as the place for corporate entrepreneurs. Also, Professor Sue Baxter who is Director of Research, Enterprise & Social Partnerships and an experienced leader of economic, business and social development. Join us as we discuss how Sussex are making great necessary change by adopting a more intrapreneurial approach. If you care about education or are considering your higher education options then do join us.

If you are in a leadership position, one of the big challenges is getting more from less. What Chris has brought to me personally and to Everards is to be efficient in my thinking, to ensure I prioritise with my team, evaluate very clearly what we are doing and as a result continuously grow. In these economic times, it would be easy to look at an engagement with Chris as a cost. I would encourage anybody to look upon it as an investment in that you will achieve more from less and will only understand what that means for you personally and your business more broadly via that engagement. For anyone out there looking to achieve more for less, looking to increase their profitability and value of their business, then Chris is a man to work with. He will deliver huge added value to your business.
