Andrew Holden: Leading in complex, changing times

8 September 2014 By Leadership Victoria

Leadership Victoria presents Andrew Holden: ‘Leading Effectively in Complex, Changing Environments’

Depending on who you listen to we are either in a recovering economy or about to face further downturns; state elections are looming; and we constantly face the demand for greater productivity from less resources. One thing is certain- change is constant.

How is your industry and workplace changing?

How will you keep up with the relentless changes over the next 10 years?

One industry that has been forced to keep up with the relentless changes forced upon it by the digital revolution is the media. Their editors-in-chief are used to leading people in some of the most complex environments possible. This was demonstrated perfectly when a major earthquake struck Christchurch in February 2011. Whilst the ground was still shaking, buildings collapsing and operating from a shipping container he was still able to lead 'The Press' into a publishing a paper the next morning.

Andrew Holden, Editor-in-Chief, The Age, has first-hand experience in an industry forced to keep up with relentless changes through the digital revolution.

Join Andrew as he presents a compelling insight into the constantly changing world of daily news media. Thought-provoking and honest discussions in this interactive session will extend your thinking about what it takes to lead in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment, how to make critical decisions in a sea of information and how to lead your people into an unknown future.
