ELP Annual Leadership Conference 2020

Thursday October 8

Leadership for a Better World

Welcome to the ELP Annual Leadership Conference 2020

We are twenty years into the 21st century and the world is completely different from what it was at the turn of the century. The corona crisis has only underlined some of the deeper changes in society. The pendulum of history is in full swing. We are living in a change of age, more than in an age of change. Not only because of corona but also because the collective thinking about many things is changing dramatically.

Some examples:

  • There is a perceived need to address the vulnerabilities of the ways in which we live, consume and produce;
  • There is a revaluation of the role of the state;
  • Neoliberal capitalism is in the line of fire;
  • Business leaders are more often required to balance the interests of shareholders and other stakeholders;
  • Inequality in wealth and income has become a major source of discontent.
At this ELP Annual Leadership Conference we will take time to reflect on where we are today, how we got there and where we want to go from here.

Why join?

  1. Be inspired by great speakers on leadership from a societal, an organizational and a personal perspective.
  2. Engage with peers and speakers to share ideas on how to create a desirable future.
  3. Reflect on your role as a leader in the changes you want to see in society.
  4. And.. use your leadership for creating a better world within your own context.

“I have had many engaging, creative and inspiring sessions at the ELP conference.
The breadth of topics covered is impressive; so is the depth at which the topics are interrogated.
The colleagues I have met have remained an invaluable source of professional and personal insight,
experience and support which I treasure to this day.”
