Henley Centre for Engaging Leadership: Leadership in Contrast. Black tie dinner debate

Henley Centre for Engaging Leadership invites you to the first of our series of Black Tie Dinner Debates.

Joining up different approaches: Military and business leadership from current and future top leaders.

The Henley Centre for Engaging Leadership will be hosting the first of a series of Black Tie Dinner Debates where they will be comparing and contrasting leadership and decision making challenges in both the military and business – from a top level view and from high potential future top leaders.

The event is being held in partnership with the Royal Air Force and includes the Royal Navy and Army in its knowledge generation.

Offering analysis and commentary on their counterpart’s leadership challenges we are pleased to announce the following speakers:

  • Derek Harding, CFO at Senior plc
  • Air Marshal Greg Bagwell, Deputy Commander, Operations
  • Sue Bence, Head of M&A Operations UK, Slater & Gordon (UK) LLP
  • Lt Col Dave Bickers, Military Assistant to the Deputy Chief of Defence Staff for Military Capability

The event offers you the opportunity to gather in a stunning setting for drinks and a black tie dinner with selected members of the network of senior Henley partners and alumni, to explore topical leadership issues that keep our speakers awake at night, and to engage with world-class academic experts and organisational leaders.
