Chamber of Commerce LunchWed17Jan2018His Excellency speaks at a Chamber of Commerce Lunch on ‘Change: Ten Minutes to Midnight’. We can learn much about change and the importance of our attitude towards it from historical examples of major societal shifts. For example, at ten minutes to midnight on 15th August 1947, India’s independence was welcomed with the immortal words ‘At the midnight hour, while the world is sleeping, (we) will awake to life and freedom!’. With that, overnight, the world’s largest democracy changed forever- a change that would profoundly affect one fifth of the human race. Much earlier still the city-state of Rome, at one point the world’s most successful economic and military empire, fell apart as a result of complacency and stagnation. It had changed government forever, given us a standard language, a common currency, law, conditions of citizenship, trade and democracy. Yet it stopped driving forward and resisted necessary change, and this ultimately proved its undoing. At a time when there is so much rapid change happening in our society, from a political, financial and often personal point of view, how do we ensure that change becomes routine? That it is seen as positive, as an opportunity, and embedded in our culture? In business, how do we ensure that we do not resist change and risk becoming obsolete, redundant and irrelevant? Having managed major change programmes in high profile positions across major multi-departmental projects within government for much of his Service career, His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor of Jersey will examine and discuss our attitude to change and the critical lessons that commerce can draw from the past. With what will be his first major address to a large, local business audience since being sworn in to office in March 2017.
