Thursday 23 October 2014 from 11:00am to 4:30pm

 Convened by Chris Mabey and Leah Tomkins (KPMG Alumna) at KPMG, central London.

Both in-house management development programmes and university-based MBAs have been critiqued for over-emphasising methodologies, models and tool-kits over more human qualities such as judgement, wisdom and morality. There is also a call for leaders to take diversity of worldview more seriously in an increasingly multi-cultural, multi-vocal business context. So, how can we develop our leaders to be successful at delivery without compromising their ethical values? This opening seminar sets the scene for the series in two ways. Firstly, it will examine some of the leadership dilemmas confronting different sectors in the UK. Secondly, it will examine the role of business schools and in-house leadership development programmes in developing more ethical and more diversity-sensitive leaders to address these dilemmas. External speakers: Vincent Neate, UK Sustainability, KPMG and Prof David Knights.
