5 Cs of Leadership

Opening Keynote: Keynote Theatre

Drew Povey has been observing, studying and researching leadership across a broad range of sectors for the past 10 years. The knowledge he has acquired has led to him developing a new leadership model to help people understand what leadership is, what leadership looks like in the current business climate and how we can develop our own leadership quotient.

In this keynote, audiences will explore five of the key elements from Drew’s leadership model that he uses with a range of sectors including Police, NHS, Elite sport, private business and Education. The aim of the session is to explore each area and look at ways in which leaders can improve their performance.
