Andrew Chambers, the world's first Professor of Internal Audit and Former Dean of Cass Business School, has endorsed the forthcoming virtual programme organised by TEXEM UK on the survival strategies for Nigerian and African leaders during the COVID-19 era".
Chambers, a key faculty for the programme themed "Risk Management & Effective Leadership for Superlative Performance During Turbulent Times", spoke on Sunday through a statement issued by Caroline Lucas, Director of Special Projects at TEXEM, on the coming executive development programme slated for March 10 and March 11, 2021 while sharing insights into how to succeed in such turbulent times.
On why leaders should attend the programme, he said that given TEXEM's impressive pedigree of consistently helping organisations to thrive and the world-renowned faculties expected, it is a programme that every executive should not miss.
Faculties who would be delivering the programme include Mike Wilkins, Managing Director S&P Global Ratings and Prof. Randall Peterson of London Business School.
Others are Ambassador Richard Gozney, the Lieutenant Governor of Isle of Man and Former British High Commissioner to Nigeria and Ambassador Dr. Peter Collecott, Chair Ambassador Partnerships.
Chambers said the topics that will be covered are relevant and essential for the success of leaders and organisations. Some of which are:
The TEXEM, UK programme on Risk Management & Effective Leadership for Superlative Performance during Turbulent Times, promises to offer valuable insights on how to unlock scarce value in an era where there are few, he said.
According to Chambers, a company must integrate culture, risk and strategy to succeed while the mission, promise, values and ethics of an organisation must also be integrated with these. He said it was not just COVID-19 which posed challenges, but the pace of technological change was just as challenging.
He further asserted that leaders might not be able to identify the particular future happenings which would become opportunities or threats but should certainly try their best to define possible future scenarios caused by whatever opportunities or threats may occur.
Through this executive development programme, leaders would enhance their social capital by networking and steepening their learning curve by challenging assumptions.
Notably, in times of volatility, stiff competition, and slow economic growth, it is easy to get so engrossed in the daily struggle to survive that one forgets to be strategic and focus on optimising performance.
This TEXEM, UK programme would help participants to learn how to achieve this and more," the former Advisor to the British House of Lords explained.
Participants will learn how to enhance Strategic Leadership impact on self, team and organisation and optimise self, team, and organisational performance. Also, participants would glean how to Identify and harness opportunities inherent in a risky operating context and how to reduce losses due to the financial impact on organisational resources during a crisis.
TEXEM, UK, which has trained over 4,000 executives in the UK and Africa in the past eleven years, is founded by Dr. Alim Abubakre, a British based entrepreneur from Nigeria.
