Are you a born leader or a reluctant manager? Many of us have been in the position where we have been 'accidental leaders'. Some people are promoted to a management position without formal training, or end up taking on leadership responsibilities without the credit. The 'Accidental Leader' series explores leadership in the 21st century, where leaders can be born, made…or just appear!
08:30 - 10:00
Each session will incorporate a mix of business theory with interactive audience engagement. There will be time at the start and end of each session for networking with fellow delegates.
Primarily for younger members (including students) and developing leaders this is a great opportunity to understand how you can become an effective leader and make a difference.
* Please note that while the programme comprises three sessions, each one is distinct, and you may therefore choose to attend only one or two of the three.
Session Facilitators: Thomas Chalmers and Russell Borland, Partners of Leading Figures

Thomas Chalmers and Russell Borland, Partners of Leading Figures
Leading Figures is a coaching consultancy serving clients throughout the UK, drawn predominantly from the fund management, accountancy, legal and consulting sectors. For many of their corporate clients they provide team coaching, often interleaved with 1:1 coaching. Coaching objectives tend to be related to leadership development and enhancing team dynamics.
Before becoming coaches, both Thomas and Russell led businesses in the past. Following a 10-year banking career, Thomas became owner/partner in his family’s long-established seafood business. Meanwhile Russell became managing partner of a corporate actuarial/investment consulting partnership. Both grew their respective businesses by focusing strategically on the ‘people’ aspect, recruiting and developing talent to drive the business forward. The purpose of Leading Figures is to support other businesses and organisations in doing the same - to grow and succeed through the development of their people.
