Following our successful autumn series of Leaders Now events, we are delighted to announce new dates and speakers for 2017. Julia Unwin, previously CEO of Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Geoff Mulgan, CEO of Nesta, and Baroness Maeve Sherlock, Labour life peer, will join us at the House of St Barnabas to impart their leadership insights and lessons in early 2017.
Prominent leaders from the social sector and beyond are invited to share their personal leadership journeys. Previous events featured Professor Nick Hardwick, the ex-Chief Inspector of Prisons, Rushanara Ali, Labour MP for Bethnal Green, and Jon Snow, Channel 4 journalist. At our December 2016 event Jon Snow said, ‘leadership is not spoken about enough, and strong leadership is needed now more than ever. It is great that Clore Social Leadership has created a space for the sector to discuss it.’
The free events, open to everyone in the social sector with an interest in leadership, provide an opportunity to network and share ideas about social and ethical leadership. Guests have the opportunity to engage in discussions, and participate in question and answer sessions in an intimate setting.
Geoff Mulgan, Chief Executive of Nesta and previously Chief Executive of the Young Foundation, will be the speaker at the first 2017 Leaders Now event on Tuesday, 10 January. The February event will feature Julia Unwin, previously Chief Executive of Joseph Rowntree Foundation and Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust and currently the Chair of the inquiry into the future of civil society. Baroness Maeve Sherlock, Labour peer and previously Chief Executive of the Refugee Council, will speak about the challenges encountered throughout her leadership career at the March event.
