Do you find yourself torn over how to lead with courage in your organisation and what part you can play? Join us for an evening dialogue with Mac Macartney on April 24th, 5.30 -8pm in central London.



Mac will share stories of organisations leading through these challenges. This honest conversation will help you think through:

  • What am I doing to prepare my organisation to navigate this time?
  • How do I move beyond a level of collective/organisational denial?
  • How will I find the capacity to lead with courage and hope?
  • Are my current actions sufficient given the possible speed of change and disruption?

We invite you to come and share your own stories / dilemmas. This is an evening to explore the leadership we need to develop to lead with courage, beyond denial.
