Managing Around the World.

RoundTables for Experienced Managers

25-29 April 2022

Leading and organising for an inclusive economy

Managing Around the World: Roundtables for Experienced Managers is an intensive workshop to look deeply and critically into the way you frame and tackle your own current managerial challenges, drawing on the insights of experienced peers from all over the world, and using advanced consulting methods to devise effective solutions. You will also engage with businesses in the host cities and learn how managers from other sectors and cultures approach the conundrums that are inherent to managerial responsibility. The programme is concentrated into a single week in both on-line or in-person formats.  

As well as solutions to your own managerial challenges, you will learn techniques and receive materials that are immediately useable back in your workplace.

Managing Around the World is designed to explore how things get done in a cross-cultural world, and how to work more effectively. Participants and faculty collaborate in a structured process of analysis, representation, and friendly consulting.

The programme is in 3 parts: the purpose and nature of managerial work and leadership in complex situations;  a look at how leadership is accomplished in a number of other companies; and application to your own circumstances. The contribution of each individual is key, as we are concerned with the reality of leading and managing - however complex it might seem. 


Participants must have current managerial responsibilities. Many attend as part of their Executive MBA programmes at leading international business schools. Others are entrepreneurs or employees of international and local companies, and we keep a few places for professional consultants, policy-makers and political leaders.  

This workshop is the basis for proven organisation, management and leadership development interventions, so we also offer a special track for OD and learning professionals to hone, share and perhaps radically redefine your practice. This is an essential requirement if you want to license and run this programme and adapt its various techniques in your own setting. Please ask for details of the facilitator track.

The one week module features:

  • World-class faculty who work alongside participants throughout.

  • Thought-provoking debate and focused enquiry into your own organisation

  • Unique networking opportunities 

  • Advanced skills in observation, analysis and interpretation.

  • Friendly consultation and feedback on your own managerial practice.
