7 August 2012
Momentum continues to build towards the first programme run by the School for CEOs, a new concept in senior executive leadership development. Co-Founder Patrick Macdonald, Chairman of Reconomy and former CEO of John Menzies plc, said “I’m delighted with the progress we’re making as we approach our first programme in London.” The two-day Vital Few residential programme takes place at Browns Hotel on 19/20 September 2012. The programme covers practical, real-world topics and will be taught by leading practitioners including Carol Leonard, Head of the Board Practice at Inzito LLP; Peter Norris, Chairman of Virgin Group; Francis Salway, former CEO of Land Securities plc; and Anita Scott, Partner at Brunswick Group LLP. Other Faculty members delivering the programme include Mary Spillane, an experienced consultant in Leadership Development; John Tiner, CEO of Resolution LLP; and Sir Adrian Montague, Chairman of 3i Group plc.
Several new developments have recently taken place as the School prepares to welcome its first delegates:
- Peter Norris, Chairman of Virgin Group, has joined the School’s Advisory Board
- The Sainsbury Management Fellows have published an article about the School on their ‘Blog Spot’
- The School for CEOs Foundation, set up to broaden the availability of executive education, has awarded its first scholarship
David Sole, business coach and former international rugby captain, said “It’s fantastic to see the way this new idea – that leading practitioners can help the next generation of business leaders prepare for the top job –has taken hold. It really seems to have struck a chord.”
