BBC Lighthouse Conference Centre, London
Learn The Traits of Successful Leaders – Transform Your Career
The MUST Attend Leadership Event of The Year
You will hear from some of the worlds greatest leadership thinkers. Learn unheard of leadership techniques; build unstoppable teams and leave your competition standing.
In mid September, at the BBC Lighthouse in London, I am going to spend a whole day creating transformations in the lives of leaders and managers from organisations across Europe and the world.
There’s a good chance that this will be the most important day in your Leadership life this year, possibly this decade.
Those of us in the room will be immersed in the strategies, knowledge and tools to take your leadership capability to an entirely new level – and to take YOU to a new experience of what Leadership success is really about.
My certainty about the impact that the International Leadership Conference will have for you comes partly from a decade of experience working with business professionals just like yourself. I’ve seen what happens when you immerse yourself in leading edge Leadership and Advanced Thinking Mastery. If you’re serious about becoming an authentic, accomplished and transformational leader, this event has been created for you.
What is the International Leadership Conference?
For one day you will be immersed in leading edge knowledge strategies and tools covering ALL the essential elements for Leadership success.
With individuals like you attending from all over the world, from company CEO’s to new and aspiring leaders, the event will be highly interactive, using breakthrough leadership techniques and strategies for rapid performance acceleration. AND we’ll have a special focus this year on the 7 major areas of leadership affecting the global environment in which we all work.
Quite simply this is a MUST ATTEND event for anyone serious about self development and obtaining an edge over your competitors. The information we’ll be covering is just too important to miss.
The Seven Key Themes of The International Leadership Conference
If you’re going to be a successful Leader in today’s challenging business world, there are seven areas that you simply MUST master. These seven areas will dominate the International Leadership Conference:
1 Your Brand – Having a Leadership and Entrepreneurial Mindset
Each one of us has a brand image – the image we have of ourselves and the image others have of us. We will be going deep into the most powerful, effective and proven strategies that will unlock your personal Johari Window and enable you to understand your true strengths and how you can stand out as a respected and accomplished leader. The benefits of this session are as follows:
• You will be more marketable.
• You will learn of the most essential strategies for career progression.
• You will have New and Advanced strategies to win more respect from your team and your boss.
• You will have a toolkit of transformational techniques to develop, create and nurture top performing teams
None of the above will work if you don’t have the mindset.
My team have been privileged to research and spend time and with many top performers over the years, either in the world of sports or the world of business. Top achievers all have something in common: Their brains are fine tuned for success. They are living, breathing, success generators because their mindset has developed, either by fate or careful planning, to drive them to take the actions that lead to levels of success most think un-achievable.
The Leaders and Entrepreneurs we work with tell us that one of the biggest contributions we make to the Entrepreneurial world is identifying those areas and using my knowledge of Advanced Leadership Thinking to be able to show you how to duplicate that mindset and apply it every single day with profound results.
So one of my big themes this year will be sharing the mindset and approaches of some of the world’s greatest Leaders.
2 Your Habits
Being highly effective is now the norm – it’s the expectation of any organisation for its leaders. You will have heard of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, but what is Dr Stephen Covey’s eighth habit and how can it transform your Leadership Skills?
In the current age of austerity, organisations have sliced whole layers of management. That means having to do ‘more with less’, with more people to manage, less management positions and fiercer competition for leadership roles. In addition, the business landscape as we know it is ever changing and quick to trip up the unprepared. Self-development is, therefore, without question the most important action a manager and aspiring leader can do today. You will receive your own personal copy of The Ultimate Leadership Guide – Secrets to Success at Work and In Business, compiled from 30 of the worlds most renowned authorities and experts on leadership. This will give you the edge you need in the world of leadership.
3 Leadership Styles – Autocratic v Democratic
There are numerous leadership styles. Different styles are more effective in different situations. But how do you know which style works best and when? If the styles above represent opposite ends of the spectrum, what are all the styles in between? Highly effective leaders know all about their own dominant leadership styles and how and when to switch for maximum effect and achieve results. You will have the opportunity to study varied leadership styles and learn about your own internal leadership DNA and emotional intelligence.
4 Global Leadership – Equality & Diversity
200 million new people have joined the global workforce in the last decade. Many are young people who have been brought up in the enhanced social media environment. They have a voice and they are not afraid to express it. Loyalty to one company and to one boss is no longer something that can be relied upon, by this transient workforce. So what are their expectations of you as a leader? What modern, innovative and technological techniques do you need to develop, to win their hearts and minds?
The leadership model is shifting. We are in a transition between what Michael Hyatt calls Leadership 1.0 and Leadership 2.0. These represent two paradigms or even styles of leading and fall out largely along generational lines. Baby Boomers represent Leadership 1.0 with it’s hierarchical, top-down pyramid where the bottom line is the bottom line. Millennials represent Leadership 2.0 with its relational, flat-world perspective that values transparency, authenticity, and shared outcomes.
The truth is that neither of these models is right all the time. They both have something to offer the other. The real question comes down to this: how do you pass the torch of influence from one generation to the next?
5 Leadership Communication
Your ability to influence and communicate is critical to your leadership success. You’ll uncover rare and powerful insights into how to influence others and communicate effectively at a level deeper than you thought possible – you cannot but profit from the results.
Much of what you will look at will give you an understanding of the psychology of human influence. You will be amazed at how some of these techniques work so easily. Using them back in your workplace will give you the tools you need to transform team performance, morale and success.
“Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion.”
6 It’s All Change.
It sounds like a cliché now, but change is the one constant factor affecting us all every day of our working life. Has someone recently moved your cheese? Understanding why we respond to change in certain ways will help you to unlock one of the most sort after leadership skills needed in the world today. That of being not only able to adapt to change, but of becoming a change catalyst.
This comes with a comprehensive insight into human behaviour and response to change. Learning how to manage our own behaviour will open our eyes to the response in others and how we can manage, influence and inspire others in times of great change. You will be amazed at the level of current leadership thinking on this topic and the research and neurological scientific advancements that will completely change your way of thinking.
7 The Power of Networking with Like Minded Leaders.
There is a truth about success that many Leaders recognise but rarely articulate, except among their equally successful colleagues – quite simply, that it’s lonely at the top. And if you have talked to others – perhaps even friends and family- about your hopes, dreams and aspirations, you will already have an inkling of just how lonely things can be. At previous conferences, one of the most special and profitable parts of the event were the coffee breaks and informal get-togethers in the evening. Why?
Because you will be among a truly exclusive group of like minded Leaders from all walks of life, from small enterprises to some of the biggest organisations on the planet. Apart from the business and financial value of joint venturing and sharing ideas and experiences there is something priceless about mixing with people who share your way of thinking – and deeply understand what you are going through on this strange but amazing journey we’re all on. At the International Leadership Conference, you’ll no longer be alone. You’ll be mixing with like-minded people who understand you and share your way of thinking and who in some cases you end up working with or for.
A final thought before you confirm your place
A key trait of leadership is decisiveness. Leaders take action where managers often do not. Be a leader. Take action – take control of your leadership destiny. Places at the International Leadership Conference are strictly limited by the capacity of the venue and when they’re gone, they’re gone. I don’t want to have to turn anyone away, but sadly that will happen, because some people don’t say to themselves, ‘that sounds perfect for me’; ‘I need to be there’; ‘this could launch my career’; ‘I’m going to book right now’. Instead they procrastinate and come back several weeks later, only to find the event has sold out again. Steve Backley OBE, Olympic Javelin champion for Great Britain says: “Success is not a gift, it’s a decision.”
This conference will be full of leaders who have a strong desire to succeed – if that sounds like you – sign up right now.

Here’s what others are saying about Leadership-Expert resources, training and events:
FANTASTIC! The information provided is exactly what I needed and it was extremely helpful. Thankyou! You truly are an expert
Great job I subscribed a week ago, I am from Kenya. I am using your notes to training high school leaders with an aim of changing the leadership of my country from bottom up. Thanks again.
The leadership programme has transformed the way I now lead and run my business operation. Staff feel more engaged, giving them a feeling of self worth and commitment, with more involvement in the company. This is by far the best training I have ever received. I now have a toolkit of leadership styles, traits and techniques which I can use to get the best out of my people and deliver the business objectives. My junior managers will be coming along to the next event.
What I love about The Ultimate Leadership Guide is how it simply and visually explains complex leadership principles in a way that enables the user to instantly apply the theory into practical work based issues and see measurable results. It is the one piece of armoury in 21st Century leadership you simply cannot afford to be without. Carrie Adams
Simon Teague – like many great ideas – has come up with a really simple answer to the question of, ‘How do we ensure our people keep on track, self-motivated and with a minimum of supervision?’ A distillation of many of the best ideas from many of the leading gurus, this event can save you years of research and reading to track down the answers you want to the challenges you have.
