Katherine Corich at the University of Oxford

This June, Sysdoc Founder Katherine Corich will be speaking at two events as part of her role as an Associate Fellow of the University of Oxford's Saïd Business School. The first, on 15th June will see Katherine return to Oxford, presenting her lecture which forms part of the Business School's Advanced Management and Leadership Programme. This will then be followed by a session at the 2017 Oxford Saïd Entrepreneurship Forum on 17th June. Throughout both of these events, Katherine will be focusing on digital disruption and the important role we can play as entrepreneurs to harness the benefits of this. It is a topic of global interest, and follows a keynote speech that Katherine delivered in May as part of the European Business Awards in Dubrovnik, Croatia. This article expands on these Oxford events, with further details, including how to attend, below.
Advanced Management and Leadership Programme - Thursday, 15th June - Saïd Business School

The Advanced Management and Leadership Programme is a three-week long course delivered at the prestigious Saïd Business School. The programme begins by looking at the global events which are shaping business today, then challenges and choices within your own organisation, before finishing by examining your individual leadership style. Katherine will present on the latter, focusing on entrepreneurial leadership (EL). Through case studies from the latest examples of EL, to examining how it can create superior performance, and allowing students to reflect and enrich their own style, Katherine provides a holistic view of becoming an inspirational leader, and offers individuals the opportunity to develop their own leadership techniques in a supportive environment.

For more information on the programme, and the October 2017 enrolment, more information can be found on the programme page here.
