Thinkers50, a ranking of global business thinkers, selected the Radar Group based on recommendations received from management professionals within Thinkers50 and the wider industry.

Dr Ben Laker comments:

“Strong and ethical leadership is a valuable element of business success and I am honoured to receive recognition for my research and ideas in this area from Thinkers50. In light of recent leadership lessons from Brexit and high profile public figures, it is important that professionals and businesses continue to share industry knowledge and work together.”

Thinkers50, adds:

“There can be no more pressing leadership challenge than that of shaping future generations. Ben Laker’s contribution to the leadership debate in education is rigorous, insightful and very, very timely.”
