Lucy Armstrong delivers Bristol Distinguished Address

Lucy Armstrong delivered a lecture in the Bristol Distinguished Address series on the challenge of managing in uncertain times.

The Bristol Distinguished Address Series provides a unique opportunity to hear about the challenges, issues and decisions being made at the highest level of strategic leadership.   Over 200 business leaders, local government senior officers and academics heard how Lucy is convinced that things will not “settle down”.  Turbulence now affects all businesses from small to medium sized businesses as well as global organisations.
