She believes that for an organization to survive and prosper, managers must anticipate how the external environment may change, and adapt their business activities accordingly.
Perry will develop a theme called ‘weak signals’ - everyday disruptions that are often ignored and, until a crisis occurs, appear to have no connection.
She says: “No one should take a series of near misses as a sign of sound decision-making when in fact they may be early warning signs of a major disaster in the making”.
This presentation, which is part of the Thought Leadership stream, promises to be one of the most talked about events of the conference.
Emma speaks on Wednesday 7th November at 1.15pm.
