Are we too obsessed with winning in the workplace at all costs? Is there a better way to think about success in the 21st century? Can a new approach better equip us for tackling the ever complex issues in contemporary society? In this one hour webinar Dr Ali Budjanovcanin will be hosting Cath Bishop, international diplomat and Olympic medallist and Ollie Humphries, former MD of restaurant chain Frankie and Benny’s to discuss why it might be time to redefine success and how we can go about doing that.

Talking about her book ‘The Long Win’ Cath will set out why she believes there is a more sustainable way to think about success. Joining her on the panel, Ollie will be sharing his industry experience to talk about what he has learned from navigating complex challenges within his own leadership journey.
