Aspen UK Leadership Seminars gather diverse groups of leaders and challenge them to explore the personal and institutional values that anchor their leadership. The participants will then explore effective solutions to pressing social issues. Aspen UK’s next leadership seminar will be held in Cambridge at Madingley Hall.
The seminar ‘Leading in Challenging Times’ 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 their perceptions of how they can thrive in our professional and public spheres.
The seminar will be led by Ruth Girardet. Ruth has been moderating Aspen seminars in the UK and Europe since 2013 and has over 20 years of professional experience in corporate responsibility and ethics. She has extensive knowledge of how the corporate and charity sectors can work together to address issues of social justice.
Madingley Hall is perfectly placed to host an Aspen seminar as you will be removed from the hustle and bustle of your daily work life and into the tranquil surroundings of the manor and grounds. The programme of events includes activities and the cultural heritage of the area.
