November saw the LMA

Institute of Leadership and

High Performance deliver its

first LMA Leadership Series

event of the season, held at

London’s National Gallery.

The event focused on continual personal development and

included keynote addresses from Dr Steve Bull and Mark

Spelman. Dr Bull, team psychologist to the 2005 England Ashes

winning squad and chartered psychologist for Team GB at

three Olympic Games, discussed management, leadership and

the importance of team culture. He drew on his first-hand

experience to make comparisons and share best practice in

aspects of leadership across all industries.

Mark Spelman, former global head of strategy at Accenture

and current digital lead at the World Economic Forum, explained

what the future of business and society is gearing towards

in the “fourth industrial revolution”. He discussed how more

companies are incorporating big data and real-time information

into their services, and the role of leaders in ensuring the

workforce is up-skilled to make use of the available technology.

The keynotes were followed by an insightful Q&A session, hosted

by Jeremy Snape, on what it takes to sustain success in elite

sport, featuring former Manchester United player and coach

Ryan Giggs and 2016 Olympic Gold winning GB hockey captain

Kate Richardson-Walsh. The discussion charted their respective

careers, the challenges they faced and how they overcame them

to build long and successful careers at the highest level.

Leadership & Management

I lead by example, I work

really hard and I push

myself out of my comfort

zone. I try to be the very

best version of myself

every day. If I can do that,

it gives me the right

to challenge everybody

else to bring the best of

themselves to training.
