Traditional leadership styles are increasingly unfit for purpose as business change becomes exponential rather than incremental. New methods and processes of leadership, are required to succeed in the volatile, global market, to be suitable for a changing society, and for our youngest employees – our Generation Y.

Adam Kingl MBA2004 author of Next Generation Leadership (HarperCollins, published February 2020) explores ways in which this generation – who have different views about work, management and leadership – could transform our world of work when they assume the C-suite. This event will explore:

• The evolution of leadership to be fit for our age

• Developing a future-focused leadership philosophy based on new research into Generation Y

• Providing early, rich, different and cost-effective learning experiences to develop future leaders
