“Dr Codrington gave a thought provoking, stimulating and amusing session at the annual meeting of BearingPoint Partners, a diverse group of international, senior leaders. The feedback on the session was very strong and the presentation was tailored closely to some of our key themes, particularly innovation and the digital opportunity. Dr Codrington made his analysis of the future of work relevant to our business, fun to explore and just a little bit scary in their scale and potential impact on all businesses and our world.”

- Richard Gartside

His message kept the audience engaged and raised the level of thinking in the room. Graeme did an amazing job of weaving the topic into the role of leaders and how they need to change their game going forward.”
