Last month I was pretty thrilled to be invited to close AIM’s (sold out!) National Leadership Conference in Brisbane. Over the course of an action-packed and thought provoking day a diverse line-up of experienced and high-profile speakers presented ‘The 7 skills of very successful leaders’. Well, I say that I was thrilled, but in truth I was rather daunted. I’d been set the tricky task of leaving the delegates with some thoughts on ‘The Future of Leadership’.
