First Hen­ley Busi­ness School con­fer­ence in Malta on Fri­day

Malta Independent - - NEWS - Prof. Ginny Gib­son

Founded in 1945, Hen­ley Busi­ness School was the first busi­ness school to be es­tab­lished in the UK and is one of the old­est and most re­spected schools in Europe. It is con­sis­tently ranked among the world’s top 50 busi­ness schools by the Fi­nan­cial Times and The Econ­o­mist, as well as also be­ing among an elite group of busi­ness schools – the top 1% in the world – to be triple-ac­cred­ited for the qual­ity and ca­pa­bil­ity of their fac­ulty and out­put. As part of the Univer­sity of Read­ing, Hen­ley Busi­ness School op­er­ates within an aca­demic in­sti­tu­tion that is placed within the top 1% of all global uni­ver­si­ties.

The as­so­ciate of Hen­ley Busi­ness School in Malta is Al­lied Con­sul­tants Ltd. In ad­di­tion, the Hen­ley Busi­ness School brand in Malta is alive among an ac­tive com­mu­nity of alumni en­com­passed in the Hen­ley Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion Malta Net­work (HAAM). Both en­ti­ties col­lab­o­rate to­gether over var­i­ous events and ini­tia­tives across the year that are of both so­cial and aca­demic na­ture with the ul­ti­mate goal of en­hanc­ing net­work­ing ben­e­fits amongst its top man­age­ment com­mu­nity.

Cel­e­brat­ing its 70th An­niver­sary this year, the Busi­ness School and its world­wide alumni net­work are as ac­tive as ever. To com­mem­o­rate this oc­ca­sion, HAAM with the as­sis­tance of the Mal­tese As­so­ciate, are or­gan­is­ing the very first Hen­ley Con­fer­ence to be held in Malta. This will be held on 21 Oc­to­ber 2016 at Ho­tel Le Meri­dien in St Ju­lians; specif­i­cally in the Am­phithe­atre Hall.

The con­fer­ence en­ti­tled “The Chang­ing Face of Man­age­ment How are the Man­ager’s roles and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties chang­ing?” will ex­plore in­dus­tries that are nowa­days in the Mal­tese lime­light: Tourism, iGam­ing, Fi­nan­cial Ser­vices, and Prop­erty. Each in­dus­try will have a panel dis­cus­sion with key dis­tinct speak­ers, most of whom are Hen­ley Alumni, as well as in­ter­ac­tions with the floor, a work­shop, and fi­nally a ple­nary. The Con­fer­ence will span the en­tire work­ing day up to 5pm, and in­cludes a busi­ness lunch as well as cof­fee breaks.

The spe­cial guest of the event will be Hen­ley Busi­ness School Deputy Dean, Prof. Ginny Gib­son, who will her­self give a talk and par­tic­i­pate with her es­teemed in­put in the var­i­ous sec­tions of the event.

This con­fer­ence will be a great op­por­tu­nity to net­work with like-minded thought lead­ers and in­dus­try ex­perts. The cost of the con­fer­ence is be­ing sub­sidised by HAAM, such that for €35 del­e­gates get the full day con­fer­ence, in­clud­ing lunch and cof­fee breaks, and (for the alumni and stu­dents) a full year’s mem­ber­ship to the HAAM (which en­ti­tles them to free at­ten­dance to the aca­demic top-up talks or­gan­ised across the year at the Hen­ley As­so­ciate).

Those wish­ing to book a seat (sub­ject to avail­abil­ity) are en­cour­aged to do so as soon as pos­si­ble by email­ing haamevents@gmail.com.
