    Lynda Gratton Speaker Biography

    Lynda Gratton is a Professor of Management Practice at London Business School where she directs ‘Human Resource Strategy in Transforming Companies’, considered the world’s leading programme on human resources. Lynda is the founder of the advisory practice HSM and since 2008 has led the Future of Work Research Consortium which has brought together executives from more than 100 companies.

    Over the last 20 years Lynda has written extensively about the interface between people and organisations. Her ten books cover the link between business and HR strategy (‘Living Strategy’), the new ways of working (‘The Democratic Enterprise’), the rise of complex collaboration (‘Hot Spots’ and ‘Glow’) and the impact of a changing world on employment and work (‘The Shift’ and co-authored ‘The 100-Year Life’ and ‘The New Long Life’ with Andrew Scott).

    In 2012, ‘The Shift’ received the business book of the year award in Japan and has been translated into more than 15 languages. In 2015, ‘The Key’ won the CMI Management Book of the Year. In 2016, ‘The 100 Year Life’ was short listed for the FT Business Book of the Year award, and became one of the best-selling books in Japan.
    In 2020, Lynda and Andrew published ‘The New Long Life – a framework for flourishing in a changing world’. Lynda is a regular columnist for MIT Sloan Management Review and has written for a range of press including the Financial Times and the Sunday Times.

    Lynda’s new book is ‘Redesigning Work – how to transform your organization and make hybrid work for everyone’.

    Lynda’s work has been acknowledged globally – she has won the Tata prize in India; in the US she has been named as the annual Fellow of NAHR and won the CCL prize; whilst in Australia she has won the AHRI prize; she has received the Best Teacher Award at London Business School. Lynda is a Fellow of the World Economic Forum and chaired the WEF Council of Leadership. She has served on Prime Minister Abe’s “Council for designing the 100-year-life society” and is currently a member of the international advisory board of Equinor.

    Lynda Gratton Keynote Topics

    Putting your people at the heart of your firm’s business and people strategy will help your organisation thrive. This means defining and implementing a culture and processes that promote energy and human potential.

    People Strategy has been a key focus of my work since the 1990s. I’ve written two books and a variety of articles which look at people strategy and alignment issues, the structure of HR, and performance management.

    Leaders are under increasing pressure. Trust in corporations is on the decline, and ever more vocal citizens are forming themselves into worldwide communities of interest to influence corporate policy. And yet, while these pressures may be sweeping away some of the leadership capabilities we hold dear, they clear the way for new ideas about what leadership can and should be.

    I’m fascinated by the role of cooperation in innovation. For over a decade this was a major focus of research and thanks to a significant grant from the Singapore Government I was able to fully understand cooperation and develop a series of cooperative tools.

    Cooperation and co-creation are fundamental to corporate and individual purpose and success. There are three key elements:

    1. The corporation has a cooperative culture deliberately built through practices and processes.
    2. There are rich and diverse networks which allow ideas to move freely.
    3. There is a purpose that energises and ignites – a Hot Spot.

    What will our working lives look like 20 years from now? What should we be preparing for? How will we be working? Where will we be working? Who will we be working with?
