The Builders Merchants Federation has announced that Dr Mark Jenkins, Professor of Business Strategy at Cranfield School of Management and the author of Performance at the Limit: Business Lessons from Formula One Motor Racing, is to speak at BMF Members' Day this coming September, where the theme is 'Together Towards Tomorrow' which is how teamwork can power us to success.
This is the first time that BMF Members' Day will feature a speaker from Cranfield, a world leader in management education and research that helps both individuals and businesses learn and succeed by transforming knowledge into action.
Mark’s teaching, research and consulting activities focus on the areas of competitive strategy, and innovation. He is also a keen motor racing fan and his research using Formula One Motorsport to understand how strategy, teamwork and innovation creates high performance provides real insights for organisations and their managers to learn from.
BMF MD John Newcomb said: “This year our Members’ Day business conference takes the theme Together Towards Tomorrow focusing on using the power of teamwork to create success. Mark Jenkins is one of the country’s leading authorities on management strategy and his work with Formula One teams including Williams, McLaren and Manor has many interesting lessons for organisations in our industry to take on board.”
