Webinar – Covid-19 Recovery and Resilience

  Covid 19 struck HE organisations like a hammer blow from which many are only just recovering. It was also perhaps the greatest catalyst of change in educational practices in the last half century. Dr Chris Needham-Bennett is the MD of Needhams 1834 Ltd and a Visiting Professor at University College London. He has worked with several universities on their resilience plans. He was commissioned by one major university to review their covid response from the perspective of the students and staff. He had unfettered access to anyone from the Dean of a faculty, PhD students, undergraduates, and administrative staff. His report to the strategic team was surprising in that the results were wholly unexpected, and have great utility for future planning. In his presentation Chris will also compare and contrast the results of this Covid inquiry with one he completed for a major European lending bank so as to illustrate the relative success of the university.
