POSTPONED until October! AmCham Academy with John Branch

May 05 from 13:00 till 17:00
Stockholm School of Economics in Riga, Strelnieku 4a
In light of the current public health guidance around COVID-19, AmCham events are now POSTPONED until further notice.
Our value proposition starts with WHY 

Organizations today are confronted with hostile market conditions and cutting edge competitors that are trying to identify the determinants of success. This eye-opening workshop will present the leadership skills that are needed to influence the world, build an organization, lead movements, and inspire people – all by asking the right question: WHY?

While all leaders know their WHAT and some know their HOW, very few know their WHY. 

By engaging in this workshop, led by SSE Riga visiting Marketing Professor John Branch, you will have the opportunity to review Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle theory, which has inspired millions by starting with the WHY? 

The review will be accompanied with discussions of success stories of companies that have adopted the Golden Circle model, and with hands-on activities to train workshop participants’ ability to apply Sinek’s theory to their own organizations.

Finally, participants will have the opportunity to benefit from the extensive experience of Professor Branch, who has both academic and professional expertise in business administration and marketing.
