The Future is What? 

Following the upheaval of the pandemic, are businesses really charting a different course than existed before?  And, is there a real risk of a backlash from employees due to a misalignment of expectations between leaders and employees?  In this session, GLL Members will discuss how they have ensured their team remains adaptable, agile and flexible.

What is the Role of Authenticity in Leadership?

Teams feed off of leaders who are purposeful, but what else matters? How can leaders sustain and remain faithful to their purpose over many years?

ESG: The Perfect Storm to Drive Value for Your Organisation

Corporations are increasingly being measured by more than just their stock price, and political leaders are highlighting their dedication towards ESG issues. The growing collaborative capacity of the GC gives them an ideal vantage point to lead creative innovative changes. GLL members will explore the confusing landscape to provide you with a coherent idea of the direction of the reporting standards and the developing rules at a global level. They will discuss how they are defining corporate citizenship, how they are influencing others, and the steps legal departments can take to incite change.

Closing Keynote - Sustained Success: The lessons from sport we have all been missing

We’re very used to drawing business lessons from sport - on teams, winning, leadership and high performance under pressure. But there’s one area that’s been hiding in plain sight: elite sport can also teach us how to improve, perform and achieve in a sustainable way, in order to get the best out of ourselves, and those we lead, over the long term. In this session Catherine will share some of these lessons, and provide a roadmap for how to deploy them into the role of leadership. 
Catherine Baker, Founder and Director, Sport and Beyond
