With just days to go, there are a few remaining places for a by-invitation only major leadership conference being held in Birmingham.

The high-level symposium at Aston Business School next week (July 9th 2010) will discuss and debate the development needs of future global leaders in the Energy sector.

This second one-day conference of the Energy Talent Consortium (Etc!) is organised by the Centre for Executive Development at Aston Business School. It aims to define the development needs of those who between 2015 and 2020 will assume senior leadership positions within the Energy sector and to equip and inspire existing and emerging leaders to think clearly, be confident and take innovative action.

Host Cora Lynn Heimer Rathbone, Director of Executive Education and of the Centre for Executive Development, said:

“The Energy sector cannot be under-estimated. Not only is carbon footprint a dominant theme that demands public action but electricity specifically represents one of only five merit goods in the world and as such is critical to civilization as we know it. Opportunities within this fast-paced growth industry are enormous, as are the challenges. Through the Energy Talent Consortium (Etc!) we aim to identify what capabilities leaders need in order to build successful entities that can sustainably power our world beyond the immediate future.

The Centre for Executive Development aims to be development partners to the Energy sector, enabling leaders to raise their game, to enhance the quality, impact, efficiency and effectiveness of their performance and that of all individuals and teams within their organisations, at home and abroad.”

Distinguished speakers at the conference will include Dr David Jestaz, Director of the Paris-based EDF Corporate University and Professor Andreas Hornung, Head of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry at Aston Business School.
