The second in our series of online seminars will take place on Saturday 11 April, and will focus on Leadership in Difficult Times. Our alumni are relishing the opportunity to stay connected an engaged, and we are busy planning several more seminars to help them do so in the coming months.
While we normally convene in person, we’re finding that these online seminars evoke some of the magic that happens when we bring a diverse range of people together.
Derek Wyatt will be leading this leadership discussion, prompting us to examine our values and decisions as leaders during this moment of societal and individual uncertainty. The seminar will be based on a short text, which acts as a common starting point for participants to reflect on the things that matter to our society today.
