Events & Conferences
Leadenhall Consulting organises events on a regular basis to highlight strategic issues that affect our clients.
Whether a breakfast briefing, a conference or an HR Directors’ dinner, we enjoy creating opportunities for people to share ideas, network and hear what’s going on in other organisations and their industry. Ideas play a major part in helping our clients to be successful, and relationships and opportunities to meet and share knowledge and views is always valuable.
We encourage our clients and contacts to ‘get out and about’. There are powerful forces in organisations that incline us to be inward looking and present focused, which is why we offer people the opportunity to look outside of their business for new ideas, new approaches, and new solutions to challenges.
Leadenhall Consulting regularly provides free breakfast briefings with interesting speakers who are people with a passion for their subject. The topics are generally key strategic issues.
The briefings are a great opportunity to meet with colleagues and build your network. Recent breakfast events include sessions on Team Coaching – specifically the Patrick Lencioni model from his book ‘The Five Dysfunctions of a Team’; the Controls Functions Leadership Framework developed by Leadenhall Consulting in partnership with Halsey Keetch; Functional vs Gender Diversity on Boards and The Psychology of Money with our associate, Professor Adrian Furnham.
Leadenhall Consulting organises an annual conference as well as mini-conferences:
Fifth Annual Conference – 12 October 2017
Technology + People + Psychology = Results
What does 21st Century Talent Development look like? How do you combine technology, the latest ideas in psychology with practical, business focused, commercially successful Talent Development.
The fifth annual Leadenhall Consulting conference looks at how to put practical applied psychology to work in effective solutions for businesses.
Fourth Annual Conference / 19 October 2016 / The Gender Pay Gap
The GPG Regulations were due to be in force by April 2017 with a mandatory requirement to publish the data by April 2018. The fourth annual conference took a solutions based approach to measuring and responding to the Gender Pay Gap.
Third Annual Conference / 3 June 2015 / Culture: Revolution vs Evolution – which route to sustainable success?
Peter Drucker famously said ‘Culture eats strategy for breakfast’. For all the emphasis put on strategy and plans, it is the culture of an organization that will determine whether it is successful.
Second Annual Conference / 22 May 2014 / A new Talent agenda for the City
The recovery from the financial crisis had seen renewed investment in the talent agenda with a greater emphasis on ROI and demonstration of effectiveness.
Speakers included Adrian Furnham, Professor of Psychology at UCL talking about his new book ‘High Potential’, written with Ian McRae and the research that underpins their insights.
Inaugural Conference / 16 May 2013 / The People Premium
A range of industry and academic speakers looked at different aspects of how the insurance industry can identify, develop and retain talent in a challenging and competitive market.
It can be both lonely and busy at the top! We hold networking events to provide an environment for top HR professionals to hear about new ideas, share their views with their peers and get an opportunity to meet others in similar roles within their industry.
We recently invited a small group to the HR Guild Banquet held at the Mansion House. Leadenhall Consulting is a member of the HR Guild – a newly formed Guild with the purpose of bringing together individuals from the profession to support and promote activities within Human Capital Management and to contribute to the City and the wider community.
On another occasion we arranged, with our colleagues at City HR, a lunch for Insurance Sector HR Directors with Peter Cheese, CEO of the CIPD.
