TIGE Roadshow

‘Resilient Leadership: Challenging existing paradigms in business and finance’.

Established corporate norms, values and practices are struggling to respond to the challenges of the 21st century – a structural and cultural challenge of crisis in finance, environment and corporate purpose and responsibility. What does it mean to be a leader at this time and in this context? How can we develop and maintain the spirit and capacity to skilfully challenge the status quo and elegantly facilitate change?

This series of the City Forum collaborates with Initiatives of Change ‘Trust and Integrity in the Global Economy Programme’  and will explore the theme of Resilience with a public event and follow-on collaborative enquiry.

Public Event: 16th October 2014

Collaborative enquiry group: 23rd & 30th October- Topics ‘ elegant challenger’ and ‘resilient leader’

Venue: St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace

Wendy Addison; Wendy’s deep vision and core sense of integrity was vividly demonstrated past the theoretical and by her act of reporting corruption in what became known as the biggest corporate disaster in South African history. Wendy showed courage and a willingness to endure being exposed and the potential of losing both her livelihood and life by taking a moral stand. Wendy’s story is a human story of courage and endurance. It covers ambition, corporate greed, telling the truth and alienation.
