The Truth Framework and The Art of Leading Smart People

We are pleased to provide you with notice of our rearanged autumn conference, “The Truth Framework and The Art of Leading Smart People”, at The Caledonian Club in London on Monday 21st September 2020.

First on stage is Megan Reitz, Professor of Leadership and Dialogue at Ashridge where she speaks, researches, consults and supervises on the intersection of leadership, change, dialogue and mindfulness. She is on the Thinkers50 radar of global business thinkers and is ranked in HR Magazine’s Most Influential Thinkers listing. Her book, with Financial Times Publishing, is called Speak Up. Megan’s passion and curiosity centre around the quality of how we meet, see, hear, speak, learn with, and encounter one another in organisational systems. Her research and publications, featured in Harvard Business Review and Forbes magazine, explore the neuroscience of leadership, the links between mindfulness and leadership, and the capacity to ‘speak truth to power’ and enable others to do the same.

Then after lunch we are delighted to be hosting Arun Singh and Mike Mister, the best-selling authors of How to Lead Smart People. Arun and Mike will address the issues you’re likely to face as a leader of smart people. In a fascinating session they will focus on three main areas: 1. Your own performance as a manager (Leading Yourself); 2. Building diverse and high-performing groups (Leading the Team); and 3. How to build your profile beyond the team (Leading the Organisation). Arun Singh is a leading international business lawyer, formerly a partner at KPMG Legal, and a senior government advisor. He was awarded an OBE for services to international trade and investment in January 1999 and elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and Manufacturers. Mike Mister was formerly the Global Director for Executive Development at EY Global and is now based at the Møller Institute at Churchill College, University of Cambridge. He works in supporting the development of leadership and change management capability in large organisations.  His key areas of expertise and interest are at the intersection of strategy, commercial success and organisations’ people agendas.
