The London Speaker Bureau has been running a series of webinars over the past months. These episodes are focused on sharing advice, support, and insights to businesses on how to navigate these troubling and uncertain times.
How can leaders motivate and lead more effectively? Why are HR departments struggling to up-skill teams for the jobs of the future? And what are the key issues that every organisation, no matter their size, currently face?
In this webinar, we heard from Janina Kugel, formerly Chief Human Resources Officer and Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG who gave us insights, sharing her thoughts on innovation, disruption, diversity and digitalisation.
Our webinar was hosted by former BBC news anchor, specialist conference moderator, interviewer & author, Roy Sheppard
Janina Kugel is the “most prominent German manager” according to SPIEGEL and for many years, she was the secret superstar of Siemens AG as Chief Human Resources Officer of the company. Janina started her career as a management consultant at Accenture. During this period, she worked for international companies throughout Europe and the United States, mainly focusing on process reengineering, restructuring and organizational design.
She is a non-executive board member of Konecranes Oyj, Finland and the German Pension Benefit Guaranty Association. She is a sought-after advisor and speaker and is committed to her core issues of disruption, diversity and digitisation. As one of the few women in top positions, she has gained an enormous reputation – far beyond the German-speaking world.
