The latest insights on narrative, storytelling and leadership in higher education.


Your leadership narrative and how you communicate this is one of your most prized assets. When people connect with you, your values, and understand what drives you, that is when meaningful change takes place. It’s time to do something different. After all, if not now, when?

The Purposeful Leader

How do you lead with purpose?

And how do you connect your purpose with the aims and aspirations of the people you work with and lead?

Taking place virtually in May, join us to explore how to bring greater purpose to leadership in higher education.

Why purpose and why now?

We believe it’s time to focus on purpose. The essence that underpins why we come to work each day. The thing that drives commitment, energy, and belief in ideas and strategies. That speaks to our hearts as well as our minds.

More than ever before, we need to reconnect to our professional purpose, and the wider purpose of our organisations.
