Date: 6/7 December 2013
Venue: Sarum College, Salisbury
Theme: Developing Leadership: New Perspectives
We were delighted that two respected authorities from the worlds of business and theological education accepted our invitation to be keynote speakers.
Donna Ladkin, Professor in Leadership and Ethics at Cranfield University School of Management, and author of Rethinking Leadership (Edward Elgar, 2010). She will ask Is it Possible to Develop Ethical Leaders? Clemens Sedmak, Professor for Moral and Social Theology at King's College London, and convenor of the MA in Ethical Leadership. He will speak on Leadership and the Avoidance of Hell.
Following feedback from previous conferences, there were no parallel sessions. Instead, sessions were built around four themes:
- Organisational aspects of leadership, including a case study on an international order of Roman Catholic sisters by Keith Elford and John Beckford.
- Young leaders, led by Rob Sharp, River Church, Exeter.
- Leadership development, including a programme for Church of England bishops.
- Coaching and mentoring, facilitated by Sue Heatherington, Waterside Consulting.
