We are delighted to welcome Nigel Girling at our next public lecture focusing on Sustainable Business and how, in a post-pandemic world — leaders will face the challenges of sustainability.

After almost 18 months of a global pandemic and huge impacts on revenue and profits, have our leaders ‘forgotten’ about sustainability? If they haven’t, how should they create new business models, new strategies and objectives that serve the needs of us all, rather than just their investors and other ‘apex stakeholders’?

With less than 1 in 5 leaders professionally qualified in the UK and similar numbers in many other countries, leadership surely needs to finally be taken seriously as a profession and delivered with the intent to serve the greater good. Are you ready?
