Radisson Hotel Old Town Riga, Z.A. Meierovica Boulevard 10

Graham Bird (UK), Fellow of Oxford Leadership provided a full day training session “Leadership in turbulent times” at the very first AmCham Academy workshop. The AmCham Academy aims at helping leaders stay relevant in today's changing business environment, refresh their skills and expertise critical to lead teams of various sizes and achieve their business goals.

By taking part in this thought-provoking workshop, members had an opportunity to define their leadership challenges, learn more about the latest thinking in leadership development and engage in practical exercises and ‘deep dive’ conversations with leaders from other organizations as well as find out ways to develop their leadership competencies. 

Watch a short introductory video by Graham J. Bird:

The event was co-hosted by Team Lead and Oxford Leadership and supported by Radisson Hotel Old Town Riga.
