CSR Press Release

Strategic Leadership for Senior Executives from Africa

Submitted by: These Young Minds

Categories: Corporate Governance, Corporate Social Responsibility

Posted: May 10, 2012 – 03:48 PM EST

 

BIRMINGHAM, May 10 /CSRwire/ - World Bank’s recent research has acknowledged that sustained growth in the coming years would come from emerging countries. However, their research has also revealed that corporate governance appears to be the bane of many organizations in evolving countries, hence the urgent need for senior executives to raise their game via capacity development programmes on areas such as strategic leadership. It is in response to this that Aston Business School in collaboration with These Young Minds presents a four day executive education programme, scheduled to take place between 25th and 29th of June, 2012. This programme is specifically designed for senior managers and directors from developing countries. Registration for this programme may be made at http://www.theseyoungminds.co.uk/index.php?option=com_eventbooking&view=event&Itemid=93?

The strategic leadership programme aims to enhance the performance of senior executives in their organizations, enable them appeal to lower cost of capital, attract as well as retain best set of employees and provide better social and financial value. This capacity development programme is a real opportunity for African executives to network with peers and world renowned academics. Importantly, candidates will be able to achieve operational excellence and business results through this programme on strategic leadership.

Through the use of simulations the course would offer participants alternative perspectives to real-life business challenges from a leadership viewpoint while applying innovative solutions to them. In addition, it would help leaders to build their organization’s capacity.

This capacity development programme is exclusively tailored for the present and future African business terrain as well as seeks to equip candidates with enhanced skills on how to make value adding strategies. Also, the course would enable leaders to paint their own high-level picture of global contextual business opportunities and develop clear perspectives on leadership. In addition, a high profile networking event would allow delegates to build an international network of peers and explore potential partnerships.

What is more, access to Aston Business School’s world-class facilities would boost the delegates’ learning experience. On this programme, participants would have the opportunity to interact with the business school’s teaching faculty, meet international candidates on other programmes and experience a visit to one of Aston’s partner organizations.

As These Young Minds is committed to adding sustainable value, we intend to provide managers in emerging countries with skill sets that would enable them stimulate organization performance and achieve set goals. These Young Minds has an impeccable track record of working with established organisations such as Microsoft, Mc Kinsey, Google, Ernst& Young, London School of Economics, Deloitte, University of Oxford and University of Cambridge and many others to deliver research and high-profile programmes.

As one of the world’s few business school with triple accreditation of AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB, Aston Business School is committed to transforming experiences, making real live difference to organisations, economies and the global society.

Professor Pawan Budhwar, Associate Dean Research, Aston Business School says ‘this programme will help participants to not only become aware about the rapidly changing global business context, but will also help them to develop competencies needed to both efficiently lead and organise businesses in the present challenging times.’

 In the same vein, Alim Abubakre, Founding Executive Director of These Young Minds says that this programme will equip senior executives with actionable knowledge and skills to create sustainable value for their organisations. It would equip participants with the ability to ease the tensions between critically evaluating new opportunities and situations, towards competing today while applying sound judgement to them such that long-term leadership is not sacrificed. It will also enable them to understand the key commercial drivers of their organisations, and make key investment decisions that create an enduring competitive advantage for them in key value adding areas.
