Launching Connected Leadership in Australia

by | Feb 29, 2016 | News

We welcomed over 50 guests to our latest Connected Leadership book launch in Melboune on the evening of Monday 29 February, which was hosted by our friends at Westpac. 

The previous Thursday over 30 guests joined us in Sydney for a special event co-hosted by Woolworths and Ipsos.

At both events Dr Simon Hayward, CEO of Cirrus, talked about the key themes of his Connected Leadership book, which is aimed at business leaders who wish to create more agile and customer-oriented organisations in a digitally connected, customer-driven 21st century business environment.

Simon drew on his extensive research, highlighted some examples from companies featured in the book, and shared some practical hints and tips.

There was some fascinating discussion between Simon and our guests, who were interested in discovering more about the concept of connected leadership.  They were also keen to learn about how some of the companies featured in the book, such as Three, developed their purpose and customer focus in line with a connected leadership approach.

Some also wondered how developing connected leadership across a large corporate business might be very different from developing it in less bureaucratic, smaller organisations.

Many of our guests were HR leaders, and there was some debate on how HR can partner with the C-suite more effectively in order achieve shared objectives.

Our Australian events event follow a very successful launch in Singapore, which was introduced by our clients at Standard Chartered. Well over 100 guests have joined us at these launch events across Asia-Pacific and the Connected Leadership book has sparked lively discussion and debate in each location. Each one has presented a wonderful opportunity to connect with clients and friends of Cirrus. We’ve networked, shared ideas, and learned a lot. Thank you to everyone who came along.

If you weren’t at one of our launch events but would like to talk about Connected Leadership, we’d love to hear from you. Please email us or join the debate on Twitter using the hashtag #ConnectedLeadership.
