Global learning at a local level

King’s immersive leadership development course connects our local partners with their global counterparts

Egyptian government leaders came to London for a month-long transformational leadership course that saw them visit political, cultural and economic hubs across the capital and our home boroughs.

King’s Business School drew on the university’s local connections to deliver an international learning programme. Focused on major trends and developments in society and government, each course combined intensive lectures from King’s Business School academics with immersive visits to City Hall, local councils, cultural landmarks and professional services consultancies.

Leadership for Government Excellence aims to help Egyptian civil servants become more confident, knowledgeable and resilient leaders. It is jointly run by the Egyptian government’s Ministry of Planning, Monitoring and Administrative Reform, the American University in Cairo and King’s Business School.

During each course, delegates were hosted by organisations including the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) at City Hall, Lambeth Council, Southwark Council and Museum of London Archaeology.

At MOPAC the group met with Dr Paul Dawson, Head of Evidence & Insight, and Ashley Herron, Principal Research Analyst. The conversation spanned monitoring police performance and public opinion, providing data for evidence-based conversations and using insights and research to inform policy change.

At Southwark Council, the group met Chief Executive Eleanor Kelly who provided an overview of the borough and how the Council operates. The broader agenda covered topics such as making and evaluating policy, the development of Smart Cities and approaches to workplace management in the public sector.

Our partners across the capital provided truly unique insights into London’s political, economic and cultural landscape, translating their experiences to deliver an unrivalled international learning experience.– Professor Crawford Spence, Vice Dean (Corporate Relations), King’s Business School
