Which Skills make us most Future-Ready?


Google-search “future leaders skills” and you will find many lists of attractive qualities: clear communication, creativity, collaboration, commitment, confidence, fearless agility, empathy, selflessness, authenticity, relationship-building, awareness, emotional intelligence, inspiration… Neuroscience shows that these qualities can be developed through training. As education establishments, how explicitly are we guiding students in their cultivation of these skills? Are we leaving it to chance? Survival of the fittest? Or do we have a coherent plan? Here, we will share effective tools for training in 21st century leadership skills and explore how, at all levels, we can lead by example.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
