These are the remarks I made at the Leading Dadas conference, held by Akili Dada on October 3, 2017. The ideas contained in the address are entirely my own.
Thank you very much for honouring me with this invitation.
As a teacher, I know that students usually expect two things from talks like this; a) a definition of leadership and b) notes on how to be a leader. I would then add some bullet points to the slides and put some nice pictures.
Unfortunately for my students, and maybe even for you, I’m not that kind of teacher. I’m going to make my remarks difficult, not easy, and it’s up to you to simplify them into take-away bullet points.
