FWB Park Brown and the University of Edinburgh Business School are delighted to launch their 2023 Executive Leadership Programme. Back for its third year, the programme was established following the successful launch of both the Executive Women in Leadership and Non-Executive Development Programmes, which have supported over 500 delegates in furthering their careers. The ELP will target the next generation of leaders across multiple ownership classes or organisations within a broad range of private, public and non-profit sectors.
This year’s ELP will run from August – December 2023 with sessions designed to cover relevant development areas for those recently taking up senior leadership positions or for those with senior leadership and Board potential.
The programme will include learnings and practical experience from business leaders supplemented with academic learning frameworks. Individual modules will involve case studies and discussion, with each session led by a Business School Academic who is an expert in the topic, and a successful C-Suite leader (Chair, CEO, CPO etc) 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 like-minded professionals across industry and sector was extremely valuable and reassuring when considering my own development and professional network going forward.”
“The range of topics was extremely current, valuable and preparatory for my future executive and non-executive learning and development.”
The topics have been curated on feedback from CEOs and Chairs based on the knowledge, insight and curiosity they believe their senior leaders and aspiring Board members should seek to develop. 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. 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.”
“As a 2021 delegate I have not only been able to put much of the learning into practice but perhaps even more valuably been able to really make use of the network and connections I made throughout the course as I have continued my development within my professional network.”
This year we are delighted to welcome speakers from UK and US Listed Market Leaders, Disruptive Entrepreneurs, Experienced NXDs and some of the UK’s top academics on topics that include:
- Principles of Leadership in a Hybrid World
