About The TALK

Effective management in complex organisations

“Drawing from my time in leadership positions, I will look at the importance of ensuring that the leadership team around you are appropriately skilled and incentivized correctly, and that the organisation’s mindset is able to make the right staffing decisions at the right time. Secondly, driving growth – through geographical expansion, the extension of customer bases and the development of new products, whilst seemingly obvious, is fraught with pitfalls, and I will look at how to avoid these whilst maintaining growth.’’

Bolingbroke believes in the importance of forging effective relationships between the creative and innovation driving sides of a company, and the business and sales sides. ‘‘Dealing with the egos & demands of individuals who regard themselves as critical to a business is also a major challenge, and often the key to success in the leisure industry.”
