Leaders in Nigeria, both in the public and private sectors, face a myriad of challenges, from a significant talent exodus to currency risks, high inflation, regulatory hurdles, failing business models, and the weighty cost of capital. These hurdles may appear insurmountable, but there is a beacon of hope on the horizon: the Customised Executive Development Programme titled “Leading Transformation for Strategic Outcomes,” organized by TEXEM, UK. The programme would hold from November 27 – 30, 2023, at the DoubleTree by Hilton London Elstree Barnet by-pass, Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, WD6 5PU, in the United Kingdom.
This programme, led by an esteemed faculty, promises to deliver actionable solutions and insights to these pressing issues through proven, engaging methodologies. It is the missing piece of the puzzle that can supercharge organisations and leaders in Nigeria. Here’s why it’s not to be missed, in the words of management luminaries:
Peter Drucker: “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” With “Leadership in Times of Change” led by Professor John Peters, attendees will be equipped to create their desired future. In a world marked by swift change, this program empowers leaders to adapt and guide their organisations through transitions. Peters, a former Prisoner of War and Royal Airforce Fighter Pilot, brings invaluable lessons on successful leadership in turbulent times, providing the skills needed to navigate with confidence.
Michael Porter: “The essence of strategy is choosing what not to do.” Attendees will refine their strategy under the guidance of Professor Rodria Laline in “Building Governance for Digital Transformation.” Digital transformation is no longer a choice but a necessity. Professor Laline, an accomplished CEO, brings a wealth of experience in global research and development. She will help participants align governance with innovation, fostering a culture of innovation within their organisations – a crucial strategic advantage in today’s world.
Clayton Christensen: “The only sustainable competitive advantage is the ability to learn faster than your competition.” The program’s itinerary, which includes company visits, group discussions, assessments, and role plays, ensures that participants gain practical, hands-on knowledge. This translates to an enhanced ability to learn and adapt rapidly, a vital aspect of sustainable success.
Henry Mintzberg: “Strategy is a pattern in a stream of decisions.” In the session on “Change Management and Organisational Culture” with Professor Paul Griffith, attendees will learn how to craft strategies that drive lasting transformation. Change is constant, and effective change management is an art. Professor Griffith, a seasoned business leader, guides participants in developing strategies that transform organisational patterns into enduring success.
By attending the “Leading Transformation for Strategic Outcomes” programme, Nigerian leaders can unlock a wealth of benefits for their organisations, such as:
Competitive Advantage: Sharpen your strategic edge and stay ahead of the competition.
Profitable Growth: Drive growth in a sustainable and profitable manner.
Rejigged Business Models: Transform outdated models into agile and effective frameworks.
Winning Strategies: Develop strategies that lead to triumph in the face of adversity.
Turning Challenges into Opportunities: Harness challenges as a springboard to success.
This is not just a programme; it’s an exceptional opportunity to drive your organisation towards enduring success. As Sun Tzu wisely said, “Opportunities multiply as they are seized.” Seize the opportunity with TEXEM’s transformative programme and lead your organisation to new heights of success.
Testimonials from previous delegates speak volumes about the value add executives derive from participating in our programmes; “I’ve enjoyed the orderliness of the organizers. I’ve enjoyed the presentations of the consultants. I’ve enjoyed the practicability of the consultants. They bring in life examples in all their presentation then with that one the participants were able to be carried along. It’s not theoretical. You know, you can see they also practicalise, by bringing in life events, even using themselves as examples. So that really sends the message deep into our hearts. And that’s wonderful…” – Otunba Sonya Ogunkuade, Hon. Commissioner and Former Special Assistant to the President
Another delegate had this to say; “…The program has been very interesting, exciting, knowledge sharing and it has actually brought about a greater insight into what leadership is…” Akinwunmi Lawal, MD/CEO of NPF Microfinance Bank PLC.
Ifeanyi Ani, CEO, Total Pension CPFA, said this “I regard the These Executive Minds Executive Education programme as the best I have attended in recent times. Not one of them, but the very best as it was humanly perfect. “My favourite thing about the programme would be…drawing our attention again to… change, which has been a constant in life experiences, you know, change in our lives, change, you know, in businesses,…the evolution of businesses and the way we do things…discussions, for example, on cyber security and mental health, which is not just equipping us to know what is happening around us, even equipping us personally, our mental health, paying attention to also the ever evolving cyber security… Those are things I would say that made it very, very interesting.”
Also, Ambassador Mustafa Sam, Non-Executive Director, Jaiz Bank had this to say, «… I found that it’s quite a new approach of workshop than I’m used to because I’ve attended so many workshops organized by other organizations.” “But I found that the approach made by TEXEM is quite different.” “…first of all when I found that the first day of the program would be visits to the Shakespeare’s birthplace and also to visit a chocolate factory, I was skeptical. So I said, I’m in love with Shakespeare but I just said what is it to do with business or whatever it is. But then after the visit and then to the two places and coming back and then I could see the collaboration between what I’m supposed to know and I really could understand the issues there.”
The programme would be led by distinguished and eminent thought leaders, including;
