The Human Difference – A Recap of the 22 March 2018 Capstone Event

Organisations, executives and the people they lead face new types of opportunities and dilemmas – issues that are driven by the rise of digital networks, cultural disruption, and stresses both for people and ecosystems.

This situation is one that is directly addressed by Duke Corporate Education’s purpose – preparing leaders for what’s next – and it provided the context for the annual event “The Human Difference – Reimagining Leadership and the Future of Work”. Bringing leaders of learning, strategy, HR and technology together with expert practitioners, the event explored the kind of world that is emerging, and the implications for leaders and organisations.
