Please note that this event has now finished.

Our next Tech Breakfast event will be held on 16 May with Cliff Taylor, Vice President Human Resources EMEA at Verifone, Matthew Hudson, head of Organisation Design, Change and Cultural Integration at London Stock Exchange and Will Barkway, Director at PwC for UK's People Change and Communications consulting team.

“Culture eats strategy for breakfast” 

In a sector which is constantly evolving and developing, is this statement as true as it ever was? What changes to culture do we anticipate in the next decade? How has agility impacted upon culture?

Cliff has worked across the pharmaceutical industry value chain and in high technology supporting all functions, working in several countries across  Europe, North America, and in Asia-Pacific. He has partnered with senior executives to manage change through growth and re-structuring at different times, and to build the skills needed to compete in changing circumstances to help organisations win. He has most recently supported the organisation through a period of change from public to private ownership.

Cliff will be joined by Matthew Hudson and Will Barkway.

Matthew has been at the London Stock Exchange Group heading up the organisation design, change and cultural integration of acquired businesses from a series of major M&A transactions. Other companies he has worked with include BT Technology, BT Wholesale (where he was Director of Organisation Development), Murex, Rolls Royce and Lloyds TSB Group.

Will leads PwC UK’s People Change and Communications consulting team. Will specialises in change and communications for large, complex, programmes, impacting large numbers of diverse stakeholders. He has developed extensive experience in communications and engagement working with global HR, Corporate Affairs and Internal Communications leaders across a wide range of sectors including: media, telecommunications, government, health, pharmaceuticals,  financial, education and FMCG.
