Everyone has the potential to be a successful leader – irrespective of the position they hold – and we all need continuous nurturing to deal with the challenges that come with leadership.
Based on this premise, the ‘Lead from where you are’ campaign is a series of leadership conversations hosted by the UWC’s Alumni Relations Office, aimed at creating a platform for discussing topical leadership challenges.
Each event in the campaign involves a discussion and interaction between established leaders from different fields, alumni and members of the university who are invited to participate.
All events to date have been offered at no charge.
The Lead from Where you are campaign got off to an excellent start at the inaugural event on 19 July 2012.
Since then, several successful events have been hosted, each reflecting the interest of a specific faculty:
* Pharmacists Adapting to Change, 9 May 2013
* Dealing with Leadership Challenges in Science, 15 November 2012
* Dealing with Leadership Challenges in Dentistry, 18 September 2012
Keep an eye on the noticeboard for details of the next event.
