From organisational bureaucracy to agility with Filip Moriau
Today we’re joined by Filip Moriau, Founder and CEO of Stragilon, a Berlin based consultancy specialising in innovation, agility and development, and also an upcoming speaker at IMI’s last People Strategy Network event of the year.
We talked about bureaucracy in organisations and how it can stifle collaboration and innovation, and how leader’s in an organisation can move agility from a word on a page into the very operations of a business.

Reflect, Reimagine, Rebuild with Cali Yost and Michael Jacobides
Our 2020 National Management Conference – the first one ever to be delivered entirely virtually – featured an array of world-class speakers.
In this episode, we talked to Cali Williams Yost, Founder and CEO of the Flex+Strategy Group, about the present, and future, of flexible work practices.
Then we talked to Michael Jacobides, who holds the Sir Donald Gordon Chair of Entrepreneurship & Innovation at London Business School, about what businesses can do to not just survive this crisis, but learn from the lessons in the past to take a leap forward in your marketplace.
These conversations were recorded in September 2020.
International Island – Ireland’s FDI community in the new economy
Today we're talking about the Foreign Direct Investment community in Ireland, from the impacts of the current crisis to how we are positioned to get back on a path to growth.
A sector that employs 245,000 people directly, and many more indirectly, the change in Ireland’s economy can be quite neatly traced back to the 80’s and 90’s when a proactive policy was put in place to attract Foreign Direct Investment, with IDA Ireland leading the charge.
We talk to Mary Buckley, Executive Director at IDA Ireland, and Paul Ryan, a senior director of engineering operations in Qualcomm, one of those Irish subsidiaries of FDI companies generating such vital economic activity.
We're also joined by our very own Julie Ryan, Head of Customised Solutions in IMI, to discuss the challenges in the FDI sector she’s gleaned from IMI's research, and the Leading with Strategic Intent programme her customised solutions team put together and ran last year.

These conversations we're recorded in August 2020.
