Our Strategy into Practice seminar series gives you the opportunity to understand strategy in enterprises of all scales. Top managers will give you first-hand accounts of managing complex organisations in the UK and internationally, promoting innovation and creativity, instituting cultural change and managing growth. Speakers to date have included Lord Hastings (KPMG, BT and UNICEF), Karen Hamilton (Unilever), and Greg Dyke (former Director General of the BBC).
In each session, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and network with academic staff and local business leaders. These seminars are also open to students, alumni, staff, the business community and the wider public.
We are committed to helping students, staff, alumni, and all kinds of organisations in the region develop their entrepreneurial potential and progress opportunities into viable projects and enterprises. One of the ways in which we do this is through our Enterprise Insights seminars, which bring in high-profile guest speakers to talk about, and discuss, their personal experiences.
Kingston Business School runs regular research seminars that enable students and Business School staff to exchange ideas, research findings and test research papers with a view to obtaining helpful feedback.
The Kingston University Entrepreneurship Centre organises Entrepreneurship Experience talks that give you the key insights you need to set up and run your own business. Each talk focuses on a particular aspect of being an entrepreneur and is grounded in the latest business strategy and research findings. Renowned entrepreneurs from business and industry will lead you through their experiences and motivations, and tell you what keeps them going when the going gets tough. They will explain where and how they have found solutions to business problems, and you will get the opportunity to exchange experiences with academic staff and other entrepreneurs and attendees.
Throughout the year guest speakers from various institutions/businesses are invited in to present at special guest lectures and seminars. These are open to all Business School students.
