While distanced physically, we believe it is more vital than ever to exchange ideas and values and learn from one another’s experiences, to find new approaches to today’s problems. This seminar is an opportunity to broaden networks and connect with a diverse group of leaders from a range of sectors and backgrounds.
This Aspen UK seminar will replicate much of what makes all Aspen UK events special. Although virtual the participants will still have the chance to reflect on how they can contribute as leaders in all facets of their lives.
This seminar will consider some of the fundamental issues driving our rapidly changing political, economic and social landscapes. We will begin by looking at the state of democracy and Western Liberalism, and then address the underlying tensions between equality and freedom. In doing so, we will explore what effective leadership looks like in challenging times.
Throughout the discussions, we will draw on the roles of personal and collective responsibility in driving effective change. By welcoming participants from a variety of sectors, we hope to broaden each of their perceptions of the environments required to thrive in our professional and public spheres.
