Event description

Description

The Kent MBA, in partnership with The Leaders Club, has the pleasure of inviting you to a networking event on Thursday 10 May 2018.

Guest speakers Linda Minnis, Chief Executive of Charities Trust and KBS Alumna Linda Crompton, CEO Leadership Women will be delivering presentations on transformational leadership, and female leadership in a globval environment respectively.

Social and environmental issues increasingly find their way into corporate strategies aiming to fulfil sustainable development goals. But whilst many business leaders possess the necessary passion, inspiration and empathy to transform their organizations, companies often end up paying only lip service to commitments to ‘citizenship’, building ‘sustainability’ and making ‘socially responsible’ investments. Both speakers will explore ways in which leaders can break through this barrier and become truly transformational leaders on a global stage.
