This event took place on Tuesday 8 December at the Brighton Business School and was an opportunity to reflect on five years of CROME and listen to inspirational guest speaker, Gareth Jones.
Professor Jacqueline O’Reilly opened the seminar by outlining some of the highlights and projects developed at CROME over the past five years. Gareth Jones (Fellow of London Business School and IE Madrid) gave a thought-provoking presentation with vivid insights into what it takes to create a strong, attractive workplace culture and its positive impact on performance.
