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

As a leadership and management expert, whose experience includes advising Fortune 500 firms and teaching MBA and executive programmes in four continents, Professor Laker joins a group of management talent who are making an impact in the profession. Alongside his work and teaching roles, he has authored a number of books and articles, and become a media commentator for his areas of expertise.

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.”
