SGLC 2017 Keynote Speakers
FRIDAY 7TH APRIL
Welcome and Opening Keynote Address
|This keynote lecture will address why diversity and inclusion matter and
why they present unique opportunities and difficulties for leadership.
SATURDAY 8TH APRIL
Morning Keynote Address
9:00am - 10:45am
|Life is a river and we are all meant to get wet! How can our personal
identities help us navigate both whitewater and calm pools? Who shares
our raft and how are we all included in the journey? What whirlpools keep
us stuck from progressing and how do we lead by letting go?
Let’s share our wisdom, ask our questions and jump right in; the water’s great!
1. How do our minority and majority identities help us navigate life’s river?
2. Why is it important (if not life-saving) to have diverse people in our raft as we travel life’s river?
3. How and when do we choose to paddle or go along for the ride? Is our journey of life’s river meant to be all struggle?
4. What whirlpools stop our progress? How do we escape them when we are trapped and avoid them all together?
5. Who do we look to as our guides along our journey of life’s river?
SUNDAY 9TH APRIL
Closing Keynote Address
10:30am - 12:00pm
|In an age of globalization and hyper-change, our understanding of what leadership “is” must change. Tomorrow’s leaders need to embrace diversity and change.
1. How is globalization transforming the context of leadership?
2. How is hyper-change impacting the leadership environment?
3. What skills and experiences will be useful for the leaders of tomorrow?
4. How can I develop as a leader?
SGLC 2017 Panellists
SGLC 2017 Breakout Session Leaders
Fresh off their tour of the Edinburgh Fringe festival, You Tweet My Face Space is a smashing success on the stage! YTMFS can best be described as "a satirical comedy that captures the modern day obsession with social media and the consequences that come when your entire life is in the public domain". As an attendee at the 2017 SGLC, you get to see this highly entertaining show for free!
We welcome FIE Residence Life Supervisor Tom Hartwell, the show's writer and protagonist, and his 'friends' Instagram, SnapChat, Facebook, and Twitter to our Friday evening performance at the Royal Geographical Society.
TWMFS has had previous performances at many London venues including: Theatre 50, London Theatre Workshop, Tristan Bates Theatre, Theatre N16, and the Camden Fringe.
