Following the success of The Executive Women’s Leadership Programme, which ran from 2016 – 2020, exclusively for women moving into the Boardroom, FWB Park Brown and the University of Edinburgh Business School launched its inaugural Executive Leadership Programme in 2021, welcoming all gender groups. Now, back for its second year, this programme will target the next generation of leaders across Scotland’s private, public and non-profit sectors.
This year’s Executive Leadership Programme will run from August – December 2022 with sessions designed to cover relevant development areas for those with senior leadership and Board potential. The programme will be a mix of academic learning focusing on case studies and discussion, with each session led by a Business School Academic who is an expert in the topic, and a successful CEO or Chair who will describe very frankly and honestly their own challenges and successes in dealing with germane issues throughout their career.
“The value in hearing from and meeting likeminded professionals across industry and sector was extremely valuable and reassuring when considering my own development and professional network going forward.”
“The range of topics were extremely current, valuable and preparatory for my future executive and non-executive learning and development.”
The programme has been designed to be very interactive with group discussions, plenary sessions and informal Chatham House Rules Q&A with the guest speakers. The delegates will gain a great deal of practical advice about succeeding in business in a very interactive format, not only from the Academics and Keynote speakers, but also from each other, which will lead to a strong and influential network which will continue to grow, enabling them to develop strong relationships for business and personal development.
“I found the combination of both academic and industry expertise extremely valuable, being able to explore, challenge and understand better both the theory and execution of the critical business topics covered.”
