The Exeter MBA is delighted to continue its Leading Edge speaker series and to be welcoming some of the world’s most prestigious thinkers to the University of Exeter Business School as part of our new series of online events, The Leading Edge. This series of inspirational talks will provide a space for us to discuss some of the most pressing global challenges and consider how we can all play a role in shaping a better and more sustainable world. If you are keen to explore creative and innovative approaches to tackling social and environmental challenges, this is your opportunity to join with managers from across the world and take part in provocative and thought-provoking conversations stimulated by our prestigious guests.

John Amaechi OBE - The Promises of Giants: How YOU can fill the leadership void

Join John Amaechi OBE as he shares insights from his new leadership book ‘The Promises of Giants’ on what it takes to develop as a leader in an increasingly complex and challenging world. John takes us through his own experiences as a ‘giant’ and brings this to play in a thought provoking and stimulating call for leaders to step up to the responsibility of their roles.

John is a respected organisational psychologist, an OBE, Chartered Scientist, elected Fellow of the Royal Society for Public Health, bestselling New York Times author, Research Fellow at the University of East London, and Founder of APS. John's deep psychological insight combined with real life experience provides a touchstone for people and companies who want to thrive, achieve and align their beliefs, values and ethics. John is a giant, literally, he’s huge! He’s also a Dad, Brother & Uncle...from Stockport (a product of the statement ‘The most unlikely of people in the most improbable of circumstances, can become extraordinary’). People who think facts and evidence should bow to ‘opinion’ drive him crazy, John is a great storyteller, will confront you with uncomfortable truths, make you laugh and move you to tears (sometimes in the same minute) and ultimately inspire you to grow and develop in ways you couldn’t possible imagine, so that you can be a Giant too.
