Thought Leadership Events


The Thought Leadership lecture series was originally designed with the intention of offering high-profile interactive events to explore and debate topical, but potentially transformational issues and ideas. Through these events our intention has been to ignite a chain reaction of change in the way we think, work and live.

Over the last four years these flagship events, which are held twice per year with high profile industry speakers, have discussed a diversity of topics such as Participative Management, focusing on engaging the wider workforce in innovation, the Cultural Heritage agenda and the Scottish economy, and the impact of an individual's Social Capital on their career development and leadership style.

With the objective of both giving participants food for thought and enabling lively discussion, as well as providing the opportunity to share best practice across industry sectors, these events offer business professionals and postgraduate students alike a dynamic learning opportunity.

Previously we have welcomed the below speakers to share their industry expertise with our audiences as a Thought Leadership event.
