Good leadership is an elusive quality, but easy to recognise when we experience or see it. It is inspiring.

Our programmes bring leaders to Oxford from around the globe, from the smallest entrepreneurial enterprises and the largest international organisations. We believe that leadership does not begin and end with the CEO. Our programmes have been developed to support and empower new and fledgling leaders, as well as the most senior to deliver outstanding results.

Featured programme

Driving Distruptive Growth

A new programme designed to inspire senior leaders with responsibility for driving growth through disruption.

Discover, discuss and reflect on the forces of change and disruption within organisations, industries and the world. Turn these into new and unique opportunities for driving business growth and creating value for today’s and tomorrow’s customers.

Designed to facilitate engagement across the organisation, you are encouraged to invite others responsible for delivering growth to the opening day of the programme. This fosters a common sense of enthusiasm and purpose around how to engineer and lead the next evolution of your organisation.

Led by Oxford Saïd’s Associate Dean of Research and L’Oréal Professor of Marketing, Andrew Stephen, the programme is supported by senior faculty members from across the University of Oxford, as well as thought leaders engaged in the Oxford Future of Marketing Initiative and industry experts.
