This month's discussion

Join us on Thursday 22 February from 8am when we will be inviting Paul Kinkaid, an Executive Leadership Coach and retired Lieutenant Colonel in the British Army to guide us through the principles of Forensic Leadership and the impact/traces we leave on the people around us.

Expect a dynamic and engaging session, with plenty of opportunity for discussion – we won’t be sat down for long!

Paul will be talking about his leadership theory which he calls Forensic Leadership® and how leadership capability can, for the first time, be quantitatively measured to provide data-driven insights into the effectiveness of individuals, teams and whole organisations.
