Webinar: Exploring Leadership in Product Safety

To introduce our new Leadership Essentials Programme and provide some context on current industry trends, we recently hosted a webinar with an impressive line-up of industry experts. 


Our panel of speakers came together to discuss the concept of leadership in a Product Safety context. This included the gaps in leadership, management and professional skills within the industry, why the gaps exist, the impact on organisational capability and culture, and what we can do as individuals to close the skills gap to enhance leadership and management practices throughout the industry.
