Shaping a global economy where no one is left behind – how we create a new normal
Sacha Romanovitch delivered the University’s prestigious Annual Bolland Lecture, a passionate and thought provoking talk. Her presentation reflected on what makes a vibrant economy which includes having a shared purpose, communities responding together and collaboration.
Sacha discusses the concept of a ‘new normal’ and what this might involve - the value of a community, moving away from self-interest to a shared purpose, collaborating instead of competing.
She also discusses how leadership plays a key part in shaping a vibrant economy, promoting empowerment, trust and inclusion. She encourages the audience to always think about the voices that aren’t in the room, believing in the people that work for you and inspiring them to unlock their potential.
She quotes “the world has changed and we must change with it” and to do this we must adopt a new mind set to create the ‘new normal’, where no one is left behind.
