    • MIPIM debate: Has London got the space that fast-growing businesses need?
      MIPIM debate: Has London got the space that fast-growing businesses need? Chaired by Damian Wild, Editor, Estates Gazette Recorded: Mar 11 2014 1:45 pm UTC 45 mins
    • Mark Boleat, Chairman of Policy & Resources, The City of London
      Stephen Brown, Executive Chairman, GVA​
      Juliette Morgan, Head of Property, Tech City Investment Organisation
      Colin Stanbridge, Chief Executive, London Chamber of Commerce and Industry
      Nick Searl, Partner, Argent

      Small businesses are a critical part of the national and London economy. They are agents of growth - especially in markets moving out of recession - with the capacity to boost employment and facilitate innovation.
      Many of these businesses are clustering in and around East London. But is the space they need for growth available to anything like the extent required?
      Which sectors – from TMT to financial services - will drive demand? What’s the future pipeline for space provision for SMEs in the City? What do SMEs want from landlords in order for them to be successful? How are landlords and developers responding? How is the City of London responding to these new demands? And what are the consequences for planning and development and for the future of the City and London in general?

    • Data Protection, Privacy & Preparing for GDPR
      Data Protection, Privacy & Preparing for GDPR Sri Akunuri, Board Member & Director, ISACA London Recorded: May 17 2017 12:00 pm UTC 49 mins
    • The new technologies are enabling organisations to capture a wealth of personal data and analysis of their behaviour to optimise their services and disrupt traditional business models, but all this means that personal privacy advocates and the regulators are playing catch up with the new EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

      The webinar discusses the data privacy concerns raised due to the pervasive nature of technologies & platforms, the principles used by GDPR to protect an individual's privacy, capabilities that organisations need to consider to protect data. The webinar takes a technology agnostic view by using a capability view and their relation to some of the common frameworks used to design and implement data security.

    • LSE: Power of Productivity Report Results
      LSE: Power of Productivity Report Results Dr. Alexander Grous, London School of Economics & Political Science Recorded: Jan 18 2017 5:05 pm UTC 4 mins
    • On December 8, 2016, Vodafone UK and the London School of Economics released a comprehensive report looking into the business productivity and how businesses of all sizes can unlock new growth. As a nation, we’re at a critical juncture as we strive to increase economic output and join the top productive G7 nations – and Dr Alexander Grous from the LSE has used data from over 20,000 interviews over ten years to address this problem. Alexander notes that the major block to organisations addressing the productivity puzzle is that firms either don’t even know there is a problem or don’t know how to address it constructively. In this video interview, Dr. Grous explains the three key components he has found during his research to help businesses unlock their productivity:

      1) Good management practices - Dr. Grous calls this the lever; all productivity either thrives or fails at this level
      2) The use of technology in the firm
      3) Flexible workforce

      Dr. Grous goes on to explain not only how to create a flexible workforce, but to nurture this as well, so that employees are motivated, happy, and most importantly, producing effective work. Through a solid understanding of the composition of the firm, and what ideal organisational output is, management can then begin to see what enables productivity, and how they can measure effectiveness.
