times of change
Scott Lincoln
editor at Chartwell Speakers

As 2023 unfolds, we continue to experience a whole host of volatility in our daily lives, from inflation, to the cost of living crisis, to large-scale layoffs in the labour market from some of the world’s biggest companies. So too are we seeing the continuation of the great resignation – a hangover from the pandemic and the change in working environments providing both push and pull factors to different jobs and careers. 

Further impacting life as we know it are the geopolitical influences at play such as the war in Ukraine and the reopening of China, along with monumental tech innovations including rapid advances in AI.

The ability to thrive in such tumultuous periods relies on the ability to adapt, to harness innovation, and to become more agile than your rivals. An important part of this is ongoing communication between employees and stakeholders, both internally and externally – crucial for confidence and strategic execution.

Below are some of our inspirational thought leaders who can offer a varied and innovative perspective on the best tools required to thrive in uncertain times.
