Disrupting Leadership

Produced and presented by AKOU in partnership with CCPN

How can we change and improve the model that we've come to know as leadership?

How do we all become our own personal leaders?

Do we need leaders at all anymore...?

Do we all have a duty to be a leader at some point in our lives?


This event brings together an exciting panel of disruptive innovators who are challenging ideas on leaders, leadership and leadership development.

Join us for a dynamic discussion on how we transform the leadership model and learn to lead together as flat-structure networks. We wiil discuss how we better support our local leaders and work more effectively from a local level. Most importantly our speakers will share their thoughts on how we support ourselves to be leaders in our own right.
