For a wrap up, see: Quo Vadis Hubris? A personal view of the Guildford Hubris Workshop, 18 May 2016.

If you’re concerned about the potential for a leader’s Hubris to derail organisations you’re involved with (and you’re UK-based), set aside the afternoon of Wednesday 18 May 2016.

Surrey Business School is organising a half-day event called ‘Managing and Mitigating Hubris” which will aim to lay the foundations for a practical Anti-Hubris Toolkit. The event will help business leaders and advisors be more alert to signs that hubris at the top is developing and better equipped to manage and mitigate its consequences.

Chris Wiscarson, currently Equitable Life Chief Executive and himself a highly experienced business leader, will provide the Keynote Talk on ‘The changing role of the CEO and how to spot the Hubris hotspots’.

Participants will then break into groups to workshop and share ideas on how the effects of Hubris in senior leaders might be anticipated and guarded against.

The event is free, but participation is strictly limited to the first 30 applicants. To secure your place, contact the organisers now by emailing
