Keynote: Extraordinary Leadership in Extraordinary Times

A session at Executive Forum Europe 2015

  • René Carayol

Tuesday 6th October, 2015

3:45pm to 5:00pm (GMT)

Sponsored by Blackwood Capital Group

René Carayol is one of the world's leading business gurus specialising in leadership and culture. In our closing keynote of the day, René will draw from his own unique experiences on the boards of the biggest British and American organisations; from Marks & Spencer and Pepsi to IPC Media and the Inland Revenue as well as his working relationships with Bill Clinton, Kofi Annan, Colin Powell and Sir Richard Branson.

Extraordinary times demand extraordinary leadership and make no mistake about it; we are in unprecedented and turbulent waters. Looking for clues from the past on how to navigate the storm is proving useless and "off the shelf" solutions simply no longer prepare organisations for what lies ahead. Progressive, contemporary businesses are learning the hard way that it is leadership and culture that separate the winners from the losers. The race is no longer about being the best; everybody is trying to do that. The winners are those that strive to be unique, special and different. If you want to understand the difference between management and leadership, don't miss the entertaining insights from one of the world's most charismatic business speakers.
