Launch and networking event for Leeds Met's Leadership Centre
The free networking event will be held at the University's Rose Bowl on Thursday 22 May, and will get underway with a drinks reception at 5.30pm. Places must be booked online.
The Centre, which sits under Leeds Met's Faculty of Business and Law (FBL), has been created to address the need to develop excellence in leadership within organisations, and has clients including NHS England, NHS Yorkshire and Humber and North East Lincolnshire Council.
The launch event will include a discussion from 6-7pm with panellists Mick Hill, Olympian and Coach to Jessica Ennis-Hill; Dave Bunting, MBE, of Carnegie Great Outdoors; Jeff Gold, Professor of Organisation Learning at the Leadership Centre and Becky James, Director of Business Development at Institute for Leadership and Management (ILM). The discussion will be chaired by Senior Lecturer David Bassett, and each panellist will share their experiences of successful leadership. A networking session with drinks and canapés will then run from 7pm-7.30pm.
Head of the Leadership Centre, Danny Benton, commented: "The Centre aims to become a regionally and nationally renowned provider for action-oriented leadership development and research, building on the knowledge and skills of managers and leaders in order to create positive change.
