The Online Business Exchange: 48 hrs to upgrade your business skills for free

The Open University Business School (OUBS) is running a free 48 hour online event for managers, business leaders and students to exchange ideas, join in discussions and hear from leading academics and top practicing global managers.

The Online Business Exchange takes place on 29 and 30 June 2016 and offers live video sessions, live chat discussions, open chat forums and online activities.

Whether you are the CEO of a small firm, a mid-level manager, self-employed or a business student the Exchange offers the perfect opportunity to take your business, career or knowledge to the next level. You will hear the latest ideas in business management from top global managers and academics, as well as have the chance to get involved in discussions with leading experts.
