Global integration versus local responsiveness examined in research seminar

Visiting Professor gives guest seminar

Date: 11/12/14

HRM visiting professor Alan Fish gave London Guildhall Faculty of Business & Law staff and PhD research students an illuminating talk into his current research on the issue of managing across cultures.

Alan highlighted that the concepts of global integration versus local responsiveness are not incompatible as is so frequently portrayed in the literature. The talk covered his research into cultural mutuality, talent management and autotelic mindset. Alan set out a fascinating model of inter-cultural success based around not only having the talent to work effectively abroad but also the ability to deploy the correct mindset to operate in different cultures.

HRM students regularly benefit from lectures, seminars and discussion sessions with our team of visiting professors. This adds considerable benefit to students at all levels; undergraduate and postgraduate. Guest sessions are arranged regularly for BA HRM students, MA HRM/PG DIP HRM students as well as HRM staff and PhD students. In this way, cutting edge research is included in the teaching of all our courses at all levels.
