Ms Justina Mutale, Founder and CEO of Positive Runway

Steven Inman, Resource Alliance Senior Programmes Manager and Convener of the Breakfast Meeting said: “Leadership can come in many guises and can mean different things to different people. Yet at its heart are key ingredients that are essential no matter who is leading and under what circumstances. From battling cancer to conquering the catwalk, what does real leadership look like?”  

The meeting will be held on 3rd June 2014 at the NCVO Offices, 8 All Saints Street, London N1 9RL, from 8.30 to 10.30 a.m. (nearest underground/train station is Kings Cross).

This will be a thought provoking breakfast debate on Leadership Perspectives from the NGO Sector and will bring together an eclectic mix of leaders from the global NGO sector who all have their own stories to share on what makes effective leadership.  

This breakfast meeting will offer delegates opportunities to network, debate and of course to enjoy a light continental breakfast with some of the sector’s key leadership influencers.
Ms Mutale, who is also African Woman of the Year 2012, said: “Debates such as these are critical for NGOs to stay relevant and alert to the constantly changing dynamics of the global landscape in the political, economic, social, technological and environmental spheres. NGOs need to be politically sharp and stay alert to emerging challenges and priorities on the global Agenda in order to efficiently navigate through the changing environment to realise their goals as effective agents in leading social change on the local, national and global agenda.”

The meeting will be chaired by Andy Whyte, Founder of the Inspiration Bureau.

Apart from Ms Mutale, other panel speakers will include: Andrew Hind CB, Formerly CEO of the Charity Commission and current Editor of Charity Finance; David Milton, Head of Fundraising, Association for International Cancer Research; Emma-Jane Cross, Chief Executive, The BB Group; and Geraldine Kilbride, Leadership Coach at London Business School & Programme Director of the Resource Alliance Future Leaders Programme.
