Scottish Leaders Dinner
Chaired by: Pat Armstrong, Chief Executive, ACOSVO
This Leaders Dinner is one of a series of thematic discussion dinners that ACOSVO is hosting throughout 2016 with support from the Royal Bank of Scotland.
ACOSVO is delighted to be joined by Ryan Ramsey, a retired Nuclear Submarine captain and Head of Construction at National Grid who will talk on the theme of 'Autonomous Leadership’
"130 men, 500 million pound submarine, the most complex machine that the Royal Navy operates, the most unexplored part of the world, 1 page of direction and guidance and up to 90 day pathfinder missions – command of nuclear powered submarine.
To lead is a great challenge– to enable your team to achieve results not because you want them to, or because they have to, but because they want to. Leading autonomously is something else. The challenge of leading, taking risk, making decisions that result in taking or saving life, without recourse to others, denied of information and in the sight of your team 24/7 is an art; an art that can be learned and most importantly shared. In his talk, Ryan will share some of his personal journey, how to prepare a team, the ordeals of knowledge, and the personal effect that autonomous decision making can have. Most importantly what others can learn from this unique leadership environment."
The ACOSVO Dinner will explore examples that support this perspective and will give members the opportunity to discuss their own experiences and, of course, challenge the view that is being expressed.
We hope you will welcome this opportunity to discuss this and other topics during dinner. We are confident that this event will be a stimulating and convivial occasion and hope you will be able to attend.

5.30 pm - Networking drinks reception
6.00 pm - Presentations and discussion

The evening will finish by 9.30pm
