Leadersmithing - A Vision Keynote with Dr Eve Poole

Published on Monday, 22nd October 2018

We are delighted to welcome Dr Eve Poole to Bristol to deliver a keynote on Leadersmithing. Eve's book was described by Joanna Lumley as 'inspirational, practical and fascinating' and was Highly Commended in the 2018 Business Book Awards.

Leadersmithing is a method of developing leaders that rediscovers the craft of leading, and takes seriously the need for leaders to acquire ‘muscle memory’ for leading well under pressure. In this session, Eve will demystify the neurobiology of leading, and give each delegate a pack of Leadersmithing cards, with which to curate their own leadersmithing journey.  

This Vision Keynote will take place on Thursday 8th November in the beautiful riverside office of one of our approved legal suppliers, Foot Anstey, 2 Glass Wharf, Bristol BS2 0FR from 1230-1430.  Tickets are priced at £55+VAT for members and £80+VAT for non-members.  A buffet lunch and a pack of Leadersmithing cards are included in the ticket price.  Booking is via Eventbrite.
