Luckily, Costas has a few ideas about how to thrive – as well as survive – in this new age.
From winning hearts and minds to segmenting audiences, embracing innovation at scale, and breaking free from stagnant environments – we explore strategies to navigate these challenges effectively.
Throughout such a successful career, it’s no surprise that Costas has won all sorts of awards and honours for his teaching, whilst also publishing half-a-dozen books, from All The Right Moves: A Guide to Crafting a Breakthrough Strategy in 2000 to Organising for the New Normal: Preparing your Company for the Journey of Continuous Disruption in 2021.
