SpencerMaurice is committed to supporting current and emerging leaders.

As part of this commitment, we have established Leadership In Focus as a way of bringing leaders together to share their perspectives, ideas, and experiences, from across a diverse range of circumstances, cultures, and environments.

Leadership In Focus is an opportunity to come together to share ideas, build connections and discuss the key challenges facing today’s leaders.

The Format

Each event is conducted online using a virtual workshop format, under Chatham House Rules. Each session specifically focuses on a set of ideas, topics, and challenges that are facing leaders.

There is no cost for delegates to attend and each event is facilitated and led by senior consultants from SpencerMaurice.
