The Power of Purposeful Leadership

This event is part of One Yorkshire, a three-month virtual series of curated events, seminars, workshops and get-togethers for everyone in, from or into Yorkshire, created to deliver a real business boost to our community. Events are free of charge and everyone is welcome to attend.

Chaired by Q5’s Sheila Fitzsimons, we’re privileged to be joined by outstanding and inspirational leaders in their fields:

  • Jonathon Gray, Director of NHS Cardiff & Vale UHB
  • Suraya Marshall, Commandant RAF College Cranwell
  • Steven Webb, General Counsel & Company Secretary of Sumo Group plc

Jonathon joins to share his NHS Directorship experience of creating and operating the Dragon’s Heart (Surge) Hospital in Wales in record time and in real time the development of a Dragon’s Heart Institute to bottle and amplify the learnings from the Covid Response.

Suraya’s successful 27-year career in the RAF has most recently seen her become the first female Commandant of the Royal Air force Cranwell College. Her background flying the Tornado F3 has seen her participate in numerous operational deployments.

Steven combines his role in fast-growing video games company, Sumo Group with chairing the Board of the Ahead Partnership, a not-for-profit organisation that connects employers, education and public and private sector partners to overcome inequality and grow aspiration and confidence.

With such a variety of backgrounds, all speakers will share their fascinating stories of Purposeful Leadership and how this can make a fundamental difference to the success of any organisation and importantly how you can get started or build on your Purposeful Leadership journey.

This webinar is relevant for anyone leading organisations, developing teams and enabling organisations, or anyone who wants to be inspired.
