In an increasingly connected world, global business issues are becoming more complex. The Imperial College London’s Business School hopes its Insights Series will demystify some of the challenges facing business students and leaders in the industry.
The Imperial Business Insights Series launched yesterday, 18 October with a discussion on entrepreneurship. The series will run through June 2013 and will feature discussions from leaders in international business, academics and research.
The free programme is sponsored by KPMG, the global finance service which operates in 152 countries. KPMG’s global remit shares the Insight Series’ theme of connecting leaders, students and those involved in international business.
Imperial College Business School’s acting principal Dot Griffiths says, “We are delighted to welcome KPMG as the first Principal Partner of our Imperial Business Insights Series. As market leaders in their field, the firm shares our focus on innovation and excellence and by sponsoring the Series is helping to encourage debate on some of today’s most topical issues.”
Topics will range from global business, asset management, social media, energy policy and more. One of the highlights of the programme is Joanna Shields, the vice president and managing director of Facebook EMEA, who will discuss social media innovation strategy in February 2013. Talks will occur roughly once a week and attendants must be pre-registered.
