How businesses manage ambiguity and create organisational resilience was explored by the Scottish Institute of Innovation and Knowledge Exchange (Scottish IKE).

Based at City of Glasgow College, the Scottish branch of the Institute of Innovation and Knowledge Exchange (IKE), was taking part in Glasgow Chambers’ ‘Glasgow Talks’ series.

The most recent talk brought together business leaders to discuss adapting business strategies as a way to prepare for a post COVID-19 world.

Paul Little, Principal and Chief Executive at City of Glasgow College, and President of the Glasgow Chambers of Commerce, attended the talk and said:

“We were delighted to welcome Professor Sa’ad Sam Medhat, Founder and Chief Executive of IKE to this month’s talk which focused on the validity of pre COVID-19 business strategies, and explored initiatives to drive up business resilience.

“Professor Medhat led a valuable discussion on how a review, recover and reinvent approach can provide a flexible and adaptable strategy for business and future success.

“Innovation underpins our ethos at City of Glasgow College. We adopt an agile and innovative approach to learning and teaching which now, more than ever, is serving us well. And I remain firm in my belief that colleges like ours will play a vital role in the social and economic recovery of our country.

“Scotland’s college sector has over 23,000 courses to support our SMEs and micro businesses, and they are strong civic anchors for the communities we serve, able to provide up-skilling and re-skilling to help our business communities on the road to recovery.”
