Our first and second editions of RES Forum Live! were both great successes, each with over 100 attendees and with very positive reviews. So we are pleased to announce the third edition on 1 July, which will develop the theme of GM Reset and respond to your input, by focussing on putting the new GM model into practice.

We will be applying the unique RES Forum approach to GM, which takes a holistic view across our industry, from the perspectives of corporate GM, RES Forum technical partners and leading academic researchers. The event will be fully interactive, with all attendees able to join via Zoom, and with polling to gauge the views of attendees in real time. We will spend longer in breakout discussions open to all, and on plenary feedback. We will also explore how to manage and mitigate the main practical risks which emerge as organisations implement the new GM model.

The event will last 75 minutes and will provide you with valuable practical take-aways to help you whatever your GM role. Registration information is provided below. We look forward to seeing you on 1 July.
