The 2019 Leading Wales Awards open for nominations on 9th April. This year we are seeking nominations of individuals in Wales (from all sectors and at all levels of responsibility) who are “Daring to Lead® in Wales”.

Our free CPD leadership conversation will explore just what “Daring to Lead® in Wales” really looks like to you. Is this the kind of leadership that will help us build a bright future and contribute to building the Wales We Want? What do you think?

We are delighted that once again we have the full support of The Institute of Leadership & Management for the 2019 Awards, both as headline sponsors and also as sponsors of the organisational category (Inspiring Great Leadership).

Our conversational workshop will be led by Kate Cooper, who is Head of Research, Policy and Standards at the Institute of Leadership & Management.

Joining Kate will be Rebecca Richards, Director of NHS Wales Finance Academy (winners of the “Inspiring Great Leadership” category of the 2018 Leading Wales Awards).

Kate joined the Institute after a career in a university business school where she led the Management, Strategy & Leadership group, she is a regular commentator on television, radio, records a weekly podcast, is a columnist in Dialogue and Edge journals, Forbes.com blogger and frequent speaker at conferences in UK and abroad on a range of topics arising from the Institute’s research agenda.  

The event will be chaired by Barbara Chidgey, Executive Chair of the Leading Wales Awards and a leadership coach / facilitator, who will also provide information about participation in the 2019 Leading Wales Awards.
