Conference 2014 “Leadership: stress and hubris” – Monday 17 November

A fascinating lineup of speakers is programmed for our next conference. Andy Haldane, Chief Economist of the Bank of England has now been confirmed to open the day with a keynote address.

Other speakers include Jon Snow, journalist and longest-serving presenter of Channel 4 News; Lord David Owen, former Minister of Health and Foreign Secretary, Professor Adrian Furnham; Professor Jo Silvester; Dr John Coates, former Wall Street trader and neuroscientist; and Professor Ian Robertson.

“Leadership: stress and hubris” is the focus of the event, organised this time in conjunction with the British Psychological Society.

This important conference will explore ways hubristic behaviour may be triggered by stress, how collective or organisational hubris can be prevented and how the potential for hubris in senior leaders can be managed.

It will be held on Monday 17 November at the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) in Wimpole Street, London.

    Thank you so much for a really useful and insightful conference yesterday. Coming from an occupational psychology background, I was intrigued to hear about how hubris is regarded from a multi-disciplinary perspective.

    I still have one question which wasn’t answered yesterday if I may! I am curious to know what feedback, if any, David Owen has received from Tony Blair (or his advisors) about his widely publicised finding that Mr Blair meets the criteria for hubris syndrome. Many thanks.

    Congratulations to all involved in a brilliantly organised event with excellent speakers. Thank you.

    Kind regards
