DNA of Leadership

Guest Speaker: Various

Sponsors Logo: Laya Healthcare

Venue: Xilinx

Time: 08:00 - 13:00

Successful organizations think globally, allow failure, encourage risk, welcome open source ideas, and support effective development. Few would argue that the leadership of organizations does not matter.

Few would maintain that having merely competent leaders is all that is needed to compete and win in today's challenging business environment. And few would gamble the future of their organizations on a throw of the dice when it comes to developing leaders.
 
Join senior business leaders on the 29th May 2014 as they explore what are the forces that will affect Leadership Development for 2020 and beyond? Are the leadership capabilities that we see today sufficient to ensure companies remain successful in the future and drive growth in a very fast changing environment.
 
What is the DNA of Great Leadership?

This conference is part of the HR Leadership 2014 Programme proudly partnered by Laya Healthcare. There is no charge to attend.
