A couple of things coming out of Ashridge that may be of interest…
Building on that, Ashridge is now running a two-day workshop for senior executives, with five dates scheduled to the end of 2009. With numbers at each event limited to 12, it’s an intimate and intensive experience designed to help people identify actions that will have real strategic and operational impact. More info here.
It’s also just launched the Ashridge Sustainable Innovation Award, in association with EABIS, HP and WWF. Its long-running essay competition for European MBAs on the changing role of business in society this year focuses on sustainable innovation and how companies can create value from the shift towards a low-carbon economy.
Up for grabs is, amongst other things, a cash prize of Euro 7,000 (a sum not to be sniffed at, especially if you’re self-funding your MBA!). More info here.
