We are excited to announce our first ever conference for Alumni from our Executive Education Post Graduate programmes.

During the first half of the day you will hear from Martin Barrow, Director of Footprinting, at the Carbon Trust on How to embed Sustainability in Corporate Strategy, Lessons from Leadership – this will be followed by a panel discussion and a chance to have your say regarding this important debate.

Louise Hansson, Olympic Gold medallist in swimming, will run a session on Using the Discipline of Sport to Lead a Business.

Following a networking lunch, Neil Stansfield, Head of Strategy, Digital Sector, Resilience and Security from the National Physical Laboratory will speak on Confidence in the digital age: do you trust your news; do you trust your phone?
