Take the chance to learn from senior academics in the field of leadership, and to network with your fellow scholars at #CheveningConference17 - a one-day academic conference hosted by the University of Bradford on Friday, 31 March.

This year’s theme is ‘Collaborative Leadership’. We hope to encourage scholars from around the UK to explore and present on how their current studies reflect collaborative leadership in an increasingly globalised world.

The conference will feature a keynote speech from the esteemed Professor Keith Grint, a panel session featuring senior academics in various fields, and a Chevening Alumni speaker. During dedicated scholar-led sessions, selected scholars will also present their own academic research on collaborative leadership to their fellow Cheveners.

Scholars will be presenting on the topics of cities and communities, governance and policy, international development, health, human rights, media, business, and environment. You can see which scholars will be presenting below.

There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and the chance to engage in thought-provoking debate during this academic conference. The day will conclude with networking over drinks and canapés. You can read more about last year's Chevening Conference here.
