The theme of the School’s annual flagship thought leadership event – which is now in its tenth year – is ‘Beyond Heroes, Villains and Scapegoats – The Future of Leadership’. The summit will take place on 20 May 2013 at The Brewery, and it will bring together business leaders giving unique insights and trying to answer critical questions still being asked about the leadership, corporate governance and regulatory frameworks that allowed the 2008 financial crisis to happen.
“Combining the experience of high profile decision makers with the expertise of London Business School faculty, we will discuss models of leadership that are capable of rebuilding the political, corporate, environmental and social landscape.” Professor Sir Andrew Likierman, Dean, London Business School, also said: “This platform will enable a deeper debate about the systemic frailties of existing structures and models of leadership.”
One of the speakers on the panel for ‘Beyond reforms and recriminations – The future of financial leadership’ is Lucrezia Reichlin, Professor of Economics, London Business School and former Director General for Research at the European Central Bank and member of the School’s world class faculty. This part of the day promises and honest look – without hysteria – at the global finance industry and the reform that is critical to its future and the future of the global economy as a whole.
