Activism: A new era of leadership

Activism: A new era of leadership

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

in partnership with Brunswick Group

The proposition is simple: the world is changing, and so too are the demands on leadership. The reality is complex and challenging; a web of crises, from climate change to biodiversity loss, worsening inequality and health outcomes, food and water shortages, all with the backdrop of more testing geo-political times. Being a successful leader today demands a new type of leadership, one that delivers growth and profitability in tandem with social value. 

The idea of doing business responsibly isn’t new, but what responsible business means in today’s world is different. So, what’s the nature of leadership in today’s world, and how can that be achieved?

In The Activist Leader Lucy Parker and Jon Miller set out a model that every leader can use. They propose that thinking and operating like an activist can have a transformative impact on leaders, their businesses and broader society. 

To understand this impact and what it takes to be an activist leader, we’ll be joined by them and a number of global ‘activist leaders’ in conversation with James Harding, Editor and Co-Founder, Tortoise Media.
