The annual FLS conference, held in conjunction with Loughborough University London, took place at Twickenham on November 6th.
The theme ‘Turning followers into leaders’ proved to be of great interest to a wide range of members and others. David Marquet, whose book, ‘Turn the ship around’ has been a worldwide best-seller, came over specially from the USA, and enthralled the audience with his experiences in turning a ‘failing’ submarine into the best performing vessel in the US Navy. The discussion panel that followed provided excellent conversation involving Richard Hytner and leaders from sport, business and the military.
The afternoon was equally interesting. James Kerr, author of ‘Legacy- Lessons on Leadership from the All Blacks’ provided insight into what he learned having spent a long period in the company of the most successful sports team in history.
