Authentic Leadership Summit 2020: Day 1, March 18 Speaker Lineup

How “Real” Can You Get in Business? Know What Leading with Authenticity REALLY Means


More than ever before, employees are gravitating towards companies and leaders with a clear sense of purpose and direction. It has become a well-worn trope around business circles, and we’ve all heard big talk about “keeping it real,” but do we understand what it means?


Back for its fifth year, the Authentic Leadership Summit 2020 teaches you how to lead with a greater purpose in the contemporary business climate. It is a carefully curated, 4-day program focusing on the core tenets of Authentic Leadership and how you can employ its principles in your organisation to drive better business outcomes and make our world a better place at the same time.

We are thrilled to announce the impressive speaker lineup for Day 1, March 18 of the Authentic Leadership Summit 2020.
