How do you build leaders for a globalised world? And how do you challenge yourself and continue to build on your own success?

This is just some of the ‘real talk’ we’ll be having at the 2016 Leadership Revolution.

Join us to spend one unmissable day with the world’s #1 Leadership Thinker, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, and his brilliant team, as well as leadership consultant Liz Skelton and research director Claire Madden.
