'Re-tuning your Firm' weekly show

One of the lessons from the pandemic is that professional firms need to re-tune every aspect of their strategy and operations

Getting ready for the new normal

Many organisations wait for a storm to abate. Smart firms treat adverse conditions as though they were in a Formula 1 pitstop, using the analogy first shared by Professor Scott of LBS.

They use the time to fine-tune everything – tyres, on-board systems, brake pads, chassis, fuel levels, intercom, etc and they also check out the status of the other cars and the latest weather and track conditions.

That way, they and their car are as ready as possible for the new normal. Re-join the race with an unmodified car or an unchanged driving style, and you are highly likely to be overtaken or worse.


Take part at no cost

'Re-tuning your Firm' is a weekly one-hour show, hosted by Richard Chaplin, where two to three experts give a five minute presentation on an aspect of management, leadership and public policy, followed by a panel session with one or more of the regular presenters: Francesca Lagerberg of Grant Thornton International, Meirion Jones of Tongues in Trees, and Jeremy Beard of haysmacintyre. 

Individual presentations can be searched for and watched below. They are also available on YouTube on the Re-tuning playlist or the complete show recordings can be viewed in the Management Library.

Over 750 senior people from 400+ firms in 18 countries have registered since March 2020. This is what they are saying: 

  • Absolutely excellent

  • Thank you again for a great initiative. I keep thinking that they can’t get any better, and each week you prove me wrong! A real highlight of the pandemic.

  • Your Friday webinar stands out amidst a flood of invitations as the absolute must-see.

  • The excellent discussions have become compulsive viewing

Our community is filled with super-smart, super-successful, interesting professionals. However, right now with WFH, it is harder to meet them. Therefore, before the presentations, delegates can gather in our online member lounge in Remo where you can bump into old friends and meet new people. Then transfer seamlessly to the show in Zoom feeling energised.

Register here for the show and lounge – every Friday from 8.30am to 10am UK time
