Henley Leadership Forum 2016 event review

Political turmoil. Brexit. Economic uncertainty. Finland, like the rest of the world, is facing unforeseen challenges.

Exceptional times require exceptional leaders. But what does it take from leaders to showcase exemplary leadership and sustain their business in challenging times?

The event brought together top decision makers, representatives of the media, and other Henley Business School key stakeholders.
