Visionary Leadership in Challenging Times Series

A vision for the future

The Visionary Leadership in Challenging Times lecture series at Leicester Castle Business School was set up to not only inform but also to inspire our current students. Created in 2016 the lecture series has already seen a number of world leading figures from industries such as the creative arts, education, local government and sport come and pass their experience and expertise onto our Leicester Castle Business School students.

Speaking about the lecture series Leicester Castle Business School Principal Professor Dana Brown said: “The aim is to help business students see they can be that person – these are real people who have climbed up the career ladder. Students will see that the trajectory to get there is a real one. The road to the top is never easy or clear and we want students to understand this, and we also want them to know that they can have setbacks but still achieve success.”

The inaugural Visionary Leadership in Challenging Times series ran during the 2016-17 academic year. Please visit our YouTube channel to view a brief question and answer session with our speakers or select the required speaker from the previous events list below.
