COURSE: Leadership in Global Energy.

7 - 9 September 2020, Istanbul,Turkey


 “Great leaders are born, not made”, say some. Course director disagrees. Using his extensive experience of running businesses in the Middle East, ranging from oil and gas and telecoms through to consumer goods, he brings engaging insights into the art of leadership and the development of the skills that effective leaders need. Such skills, he argues, can be acquired and developed.

This program, focuses on the combination of hard skills - required by managers in planning, organising and operating - to soft skills – required by leaders for driving change, setting direction and inspiring high performance. Through personal and practical examples based on years of experience applying both hard and soft skills, Course director provides a comprehensive understanding of how to be an effective leader, how to make better decisions, and how to build and motivate teams across functions and regions.
