Leaders to speak in London this October

Some of the world’s most highly regarded business, academic and political leaders will gather in London this October to discuss leadership with British business directors at the inaugural Leaders in London event.

Rudolph Giuliani, Jack Welch, Michael Porter, Alvin Toffler, Lester Thurow, Frank Maquire and Robert Kaplan are just some of the names currently confirmed to speak at Leaders in London, a two-day event focusing on leadership that will take place at Earls Court on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th October 2004.

Each of the speakers will deliver to the audience of British business directors a discussion on a particular aspect of leadership. Delegates will have the opportunity to direct questions to each of the speakers. The event is aimed at UK and European business leaders. The organisers are expecting more than 1,000 managing directors, CEOs and other business leaders to attend.

The issue of leadership has grown in importance over recent years, with a great deal being written and said about it. The last major study of leadership in the UK, which was conducted by the Council for Excellence in Management & Leadership and announced in May 2002, labelled management and leadership in the UK as "a dysfunctional system" and concluded that the UK's economic performance was being held back by a shortage of appropriate and practical leadership skills.
