Dylan Wyn Pugh
Head of Strategy, The Times News UK

Only Dead Fish Go With the Flow - Using DataLed Strategic Insight to Challenge a Market
The endless supply of free content and new media brands online has created a commoditisation of ALL advertiser audiences (online and offline). Many brands have been slow to respond to this evolving market, lacking innovation and re-focusing of their resources, so severely affecting their market share and future chance of success. Defining a strategy of growth to evolve a more complicated multiplatform advertising proposition while still bringing in revenue today, has been likened to ‘flying a plane while trying to change the wings at the same time’.

Responsible for commercial strategy for circa £120m multi-platform advertising revenue across all Times Media platforms: print, ipad, web, mobile. The role drives commercial growth and sales innovation while also leading key organisational change programmes around client segmentation, revenue growth and client-servicing efficiencies across all News UK brands. Career started working at media agencies for both Group M and Aegis groups on a range of blue chip brands before moving to News UK in 2006 to help evolve their strategic sales approach to target Media Planning and Strategy teams.

Jonathan Crocker
Chief Executive Officer Accurist

The Strategic Change Sponsored By Accurist...
Accurist has undergone a fast paced brand-alignment process in recent times. The strategic planning, operational challenges and realtime decision making processes that define it reflect the same challenges that face FTSE 100 challenges. However, in a small organisation such as ours these are infinitely more visible. From my close proximity to the ‘floor’ of our organisation, I will demonstrate the reality of such change, particularly on the impact on performance and people.

Currently leading the realignment and growth strategy of the 67 year old British watch brand, Jonathan has worked in the luxury-lifestyle branded   arena for most of his career. He spent 12 years with the Danish audio-video masters Bang & Olufsen, leading the change from   multi-brand to boutique   mono-brand distribution and for 8 years setting up and leading the Emerging Markets division working in 45 different countries. Following this Jonathan has been devising and implementing change and launch strategy with several brands. A judge on the UKJA   and a regular writing contributor to the industry magazines he was recently named as one of the "Brand Champions" in the watch industries Hot 100.

Nick Herm
Chief Operations Officer Sky News

Strategy and 24 Hour Live News
Delivering the news is an intensive and demanding business. It involves working in an environment that is fastpaced and never sleeps. It requires major decisions to be made every day, often within a limited timeframe and with limited information. This session will explore the differences between the world of live news and the world of strategy, but also some underlying similarities and what each could learn from the other.

Nick has been at Sky for over 15 years in a wide range of roles. Nick was recently appointed Chief Operating Officer at Sky News and his role covers all aspects of running the organisation – including commercial deals, strategy and people. Before this, Nick was Deputy Head of Strategy for a number of years and involved in numerous significant projects. These include the acquisition of VMtv, the addition of the Viacom business to Sky Media’s portfolio, the launch of Sky Atlantic and many commercial deals with the major US studios and sports bodies. Nick studied at Warwick University and graduated with a BA Hons in Economics and International Studies.

Organizing a Conglomerate’s Strategy Process
How does one go about organizing strategy in a Group with a successful history spanning more than 100 years? A new process necessitated both by change in leadership, heightened demands from stakeholders as well as market growth opportunities. This presentation will walk through the key steps in the A.P.Moller-Maersk’s Groups still evolving strategy process – from the “operating system” to how it helps focus investments, drive performance and progress on the long-term aspirations. I will discuss the outcomes so far, but also hope for comments and questions from the audience to co-develop perhaps even better answers.

Vicky Bramley
Head of Strategy B&Q

Keeping Pace with the Retail Revolution
The retail world has changed substantially. Remember a time before Google? A time when consumers only shopped in stores and when engaging with retailers meant exchanging pleasantries about the weather at the checkout? We've come a long way since then.   Today's consumer wants to interact with retailers via multiple channels, wherever and whenever they choose, 24/7. It’s no longer good enough to offer great products at great prices. B&Q is now making the transition from traditional retailer to omni-channel supremo.

Vicky is the Head of Strategy at B&Q, the UK’s leading home improvement retailer. Vicky began her career in financial services, spending twelve years at Skandia, in various strategy and planning roles - most recently as Chief Strategy Officer. Retail beckoned, and in 2011 Vicky joined B&Q, part of the Kingfisher Group, to lead the strategic journey - from traditional store based retailer into the brave new world of omni-channel delivery. B&Q is currently undertaking one of the biggest transformation programmes in UK retail in order to set them up well for many more years leading the UK home improvement market.

Niko Karjalainen
Sr. Dir, Strategy and Business Dev Hertz International

Whats wrong with strategic planning and how to fix it?
Crafting and executing a solid strategy is essential to the survival and success of organisations. If anything, the prolonged economic crisis has increased the importance of strategic thinking, analysis and behaviour. However, while the term “strategy” has become ubiquitous and the strategy skillset disseminated among an increasing set of practitioners, the meaning and impact of strategy has diminished. If everything is “strategic”, nothing is. The objective of this interactive session is to provide food for thought on the role of strategy and strategy executives and to discuss ideas for adding maximum value to organisations and the society.

Niko Karjalainen is a seasoned strategy practitioner with a background in corporate strategy and consulting. Previously Niko served as a Director, Corporate Strategy at American Express and had a career in strategy consulting, most recently at L.E.K. Consulting. Niko is keen to contribute to the theory of strategy as well as practice and has published a book and several articles. His forthcoming book “Strategic Analysis in Practice” provides hands-on advice on effective strategic planning.

Speaker Information
Andrew Baddeley - Chappell
Head of Strategy & Policy Nationwide Building Society

‘Building Society’
Nationwide Building Society is unique in the UK in having the size and scale to compete with the high street banks. Critical to the workings of the economy, its markets experienced boom and subsequent bust.   Bankers bore the blunt of the blame for the economic downturn and reputations were further damaged by major issues with mis-selling and customer service. Nationwide is part of the market but different from its banking competitors.   The Society’s initial challenge was how to demonstrate its difference to both existing and potential customers.   Its wider ambition however is to work within a market that works in the best interest of customers.   This means a need not only to be different but also to lead the way for others to follow.

Andrew Baddeley-Chappell qualified as a chartered accountant with Ernst & Young before joining Nationwide Building Society in 1992.   The Society is the third largest mortgage lender and the second largest savings provider in the UK, with around 15 million members.   Andrew has undertaken a range of roles within different elements of the Nationwide Group including internal audit, banking, life assurance, unit trusts and personal loans.   Previous roles include Finance Director of the Group's specialist mortgage lending subsidiary and Head of Mortgage Marketing for Nationwide. Andrew is currently Head of Strategy & Policy for Mortgages & Savings.   Andrew is the lead contact with trade bodies, government and regulators on housing, mortgage and savings matters.

Tapping into Adjacent Markets - A Telco’s Strategy to Innovate

Richard Clarke
VP, Global Retail Strategy Fujitsu

Planning Horizons in Retail IT? About 24 Hours - How Tech and IT Services Providers Plan for Growth
In two industries subject to exceptional change – IT and retail – Richard Clarke will explain how Fujitsu tries to take a long view in a very short term game. Specifically this presentation will illuminate some of the planning principles and methodologies employed by a global ICT player – with some success, some not - to bring strategic vision to new product development, quarter by quarter sales planning and customer by customer account and delivery management.

BT is a stand-out example of a blue chip company that has made doing the right thing make sound commercial sense. BT’s energy and carbon reduction program has now saved more than £90m of energy costs from the BT cost base. BT has delivered an 80% reduction of carbon from its 1996 base year (reaching the 80% target it set itself three years early). Scott will discuss the commercial and strategic stories that have helped BT to deliver its successes, and how BT’s Energy and Carbon team have made its program of work commercially and strategically important to the wider business.

Speaker Information
Michele Fiorentino
Director, Strategy Castrol, at BP

Perfect Change for a Fluid Simplicity
At any point in time global organisations find themselves dealing, with the issues of investing for  long-term growth while securing short-term business profitability, and at the same time driving worldwide efficiencies while remaining agile and responsive locally.  In a difficult macroeconomic environment the need to design and execute strategies to manage these potentially conflicting objectives becomes critical. I will discuss the genesis of such tensions at Castrol, and which strategies we have adopted and are evaluating to help the organisation not only to navigate the current difficult market but also to equip it to become a better and stronger company.

Michele is Strategy Director at BP Castrol AIME. His responsibilities include leading acquisitions, divestments and joint ventures strategies, and due diligence. He is also a member of the senior team defining the strategy for managing the division’s portfolio of operational assets. He has over 18 years’ experience at BP in senior corporate finance and business strategy roles. He has also led the origination, evaluation and execution of acquisitions, divestments and joint ventures, from due diligence to structuring to negotiation and closing. During this period, his roles have included Corporate Finance Manager, Structured Finance Manager and Global Fuels M&A Programme Manager.

Worked on complex strategic initiatives for HP, Kraft Foods, Ferrero International and Coca Cola.

Complexities & Decision Traps in Mergers & Acquisitions
Mergers and acquisitions are among the most fatal decisions that executives are asked to take. The failure rate of large scale acquisitions are still in the 70-80% range despite 60 years of accumulated experience, numerous conferences and hundreds of books on the subject.   Undeniably the complexity that decision makers are faced with in Merger and Acquisitions is extreme requiring corporate professionals to analyze organisations from all functional aspects working across diverse disciples, legislations, countries, cultures and often requiring to make sense of conflicting ways of thinking introduced by a plethora of advisors.   During the presentation a framework to interpret Mergers and Acquisitions is proposed and   the typical   biases of senior management are illustrated. Recognizing and reducing biases is vital for upgrading the quality of such strategic decisions.

Steven Murray
Director, Group Strategy Standard Life

Making Strategic Planning a More Continuous Process
As soon as a strategic plan is formally documented it is almost immediately out of date and in many organisations can be something that sits on the shelf only being revisited as part of a review every few years. There are significant benefits associated with moving to a more continuous process where the strategy evolves as the business and its competitive environment changes.   These include on-going engagement with senior management,   the wider business population and the board as well as a greater ability to act quickly in the event of a change including better monitoring of whether the strategy is being successful.

Steve was appointed Group Strategy & Corporate Finance Director at Standard Life in June 2011 having previously headed up Group Corporate Finance.   He is responsible for overseeing and developing the Groups organic and inorganic strategy, oversight and execution of corporate transactions and oversight of the Groups strategic investments in JVs. He joined Standard Life in 2004, working on the Group’s listing readiness programme and the flotation team.   Post Standard Life’s flotation in June 2006, he joined the newly formed Corporate Finance team.  Prior to Standard Life, Steve worked for Ernst & Young across a variety of disciplines.

From Transactional to Strategic: How McAfee is repositioning itself in the UK with Government
The UK Public Sector has long been a good marketplace for McAfee, but in recent years, revenues have slowed. I was brought in to ascertain why, and build a recovery programme. My view was that the messaging and approach to customers was wrong and provided little value to them. This presentation discusses my approach to date: my methodology, what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, and what lies ahead.

Strategic Change - From Infrastructure Bias to Passenger Focussed, Product Led Strategy
Following the sale of Gatwick in December 2009 by BAA, Gatwick Airport has been free to compete. This presentation will explain one of the strategic changes since taken to compete for market share - breaking away from a legacy approach to infrastructure, and moving towards a customer and passenger focussed plan. Through extensive passenger research and market intelligence, a targeted approach was developed, utilising a balanced application of improvements in people, process, technology and infrastructure to gain competitive advantage. Whilst familiar to most competitive businesses today, it’s a step change in the airport sector and is causing a great deal of interest amongst competitors.
