Scholars' Conference - 12th - 13th October, University College London
For the third year, over 200 Laidlaw Scholars from around the world will gather to meet, eat, exchange ideas, discover new opportunities, gain exclusive insights, challenge and inspire each other.
Scholars' Conference 12th - 13th October 2019
The third annual Laidlaw Scholars' Conference is being organised and hosted by UCL.
Over 200 scholars and staff, representing 13 universities, are expected to gather in London; along with leadership from the Laidlaw Foundation and our charity partners.
A fascinating mix of speakers and sessions, a gala dinner on the Saturday night, and a mystery tour on Sunday, will provide a wonderful opportunity for scholars to network, discover new opportunities and learn from experts and each other.
Speakers at last year's St. Andrews Conference included Dr Sean Talamas from The Character Lab, speaking about the crossover between character/leadership and scientific research; Dr Cath Bishop sharing experiences from her career as an Olympic Rower and UK diplomat and the self-leadership it required; and Dr David Erdal outlining his own leadership journey which was heavily influenced by his experiences with employee ownership in companies. Scholars also gathered to attend a series of leadership discussions and networked during a late afternoon tour of St Andrews before enjoying a Scottish themed, celebratory dinner at the University’s Lower College Hall.
