Open Your Mind by meeting a Military Strategist

  • Barbican London United Kingdom (map)

Going back to the roots of Strategy, we’ll be exploring our discipline through the lense of war with Professor Michael Rainsborough, Head of the Department of War Studies at King’s College.

The Professor will share with us his expertise on Strategy Theory - how ideas and values shape the definition and understanding of means and ends in war.

Whether Strategy is applied in a Marketing or Military context, some concepts are very similar: achieving goals that are worth the cost, defining the criteria of success, understanding the value system of an opponent…

By sharing war stories and case studies, the Professor will help us to ask the right questions before taking any strategic decisions - the core of our daily job.

We think this one will be a super popular one and you know we’ll have only 15 seats at the table. So be ready to rumble when we send out the invite this Wednesday.

What is Open Your Mind?

We bring in (or visit) people who work in industries outside of marketing, like a gallery owner or clean wastage plant manager, to open our minds and gain different insight which we can implement in our own fields.
