Drawing on experiences from his career to date, Sir Clive will deliver a presentation on “The DNA of a Champion”, his style of leadership and what he’s learnt along the way. Based on the notion that “Great teams are made of great individuals”, Clive will speak about the four criteria which he believes characterise a champion individual or team in both business and sport, and also how leaders can coach these characteristics to create high performing teams.

He is joined by fellow speakers Debra Searle MBE, a professional adventurer and serial entrepreneur, and Richard Nugent, founder and managing director of TwentyOne Leadership.

Shropshire’s third leadership conference brings together influential speakers from an array of backgrounds to impart their knowledge and experience of leadership. Over 100 delegates representing public and private sectors, local small and medium enterprises and international businesses have already signed up for the day.

His ALIGNED® methodology is revolutionising how companies operate, communicate and how leaders bring their people on the journey with them.

The approach brings a new perspective to leadership by smashing two lingering business myths that get in the way of organisations reaching their real potential.

  • The first myth is that strategy eats culture for breakfast.
  • The second myth is that great organisations start with ‘why?’
  • By challenging these popular myths, ALIGNED® reveals how you can grab a competitive advantage by aligning strategy, culture and customer experience.
