The New Round of IBSS Brown Bag "Lunch and Learn" Sessions

 Dear DUSA Members and Friends,

A big thank you for supporting the Brown Bag "Lunch and Learn" Sessions in the past months and we are delighted to present you the new round of brown bag talks from DUSA Annual Partner: International Business School Suzhou (IBSS) at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU). 

In this new round of brown bag talks, there will be six sessions with timely, concrete and practical topics concerning management. 

We are delighted to invite you to attend the third session "Managing Change" on July 29th. 

The Third Session

Topic: Managing Change

Change is one of life's certainties, and in the modern world, change is coming increasingly fast. Businesses that don't change almost inevitably get left behind, so businesses must embrace change and evolve due to changes in the environment and the organisation itself. However, if a change is so certain and important, why is there always resistance to change? This session will cover some of the drivers of change and the implications for businesses; from VUCA to Creative Destruction we will explore some of the reasons why we face change. We will briefly look at some of the change models that businesses can use to implement change and then look at five aspects of change management. If you are dealing with change in your organisation this session should provide you with some ideas for reducing resistance and helping employees cope with change.


12:10 PM -12:50 PM, Wednesday, July 29, 2020


Registration will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis, with priority given to DUSA Members.
