Conference 2021: Lead

Day 3 of the Bond Annual Conference 2021 explored the latest insights and perspectives in transformational leadership and strategy to solve organisation’s challenges, on 26 May online. 

As NGOs face a volatile new normal and their systemic problems, our thought-provoking sessions tackled organisation’s internal issues and external challenges. 

The Lead programme spanned redressing power dynamics, leadership in light of intersecting crises and new visions for UK organisations’ strategies.
