Strategic HR: Developing Leadership Skills for Successful Strategy Execution [Members Only]

Organized by

Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

SwissCham is happy to support the British Chamber Shanghai’s Human Resources Focus Group and is cordially inviting organizational leaders and HR practitioners to join us and discuss the role of HR/L&D in supporting the successful execution of strategy.

What is the relationship between leadership skills and organizational strategy?

In today’s business world, designing the “right” strategy has become just the first step for leaders across the board, needing to create buy-in and give a sense of direction to their people in a more sustainable way.

Join this discussion with Lucy Qi, Managing Consultant & CEO at Fengsou Shanghai, Usha Raghavachari, Marketing Director at Ford Motor Company, and Andrew Nip, Head of Talent Acquisitions, Learning & Development, Hays Asia to find out how HR and L&D could support the development of leadership skills that are critical for strategy execution, and what leadership skills are being developed by organizations to address such challenge.

Best regards,

Your SwissCham Team
