Ever wondered why change is often difficult and takes longer to implement than we expect/hope for? Our guest speaker Dr Robina Chatham will share some facts on why this is the case and will introduce the concept of the ‘modern virus’ and no its not Covid-19!

Join us in-person to meet colleagues and like-minded individuals and be part of the conversation to understand why change is hard and how lessons from the past and present can help us build the future.

About our speaker

Robina qualified as both Mechanical Engineer and Neuroscientist. Her career commenced within the shipbuilding industry, where she pioneered the introduction of computing onto the shop floor.  Robina subsequently followed a career in IT, which culminated in the position of European IT Director for a leading merchant bank. In 1996 Robina joined Cranfield School of Management as a Lecturer in Management Information Systems where she created the acclaimed and in some cases life changing programme – Organisational Politics and IT Management. In 2000 Robina authored her first book “Corporate Politics for IT Managers: How to get streetwise”, published by Butterworth Heinemann. In the words of the Chief Executive of the British Computer Society “If a fraction of those who read the book do something positive with the ideas presented the state of UK plc will be for ever enriched.”

During the pandemic she focused on the design and production of a set of educational videos aimed at training every healthcare worker in the State of Nevada in relation to “cultural competency”.
