Thought leadership masterclass

For people who are interested in communicating ideas about business or policy to a large, general readership and in articulating their ideas more clearly.

Led by Art Kleiner, the editor-in-chief of Strategy+Business, PwC's award-winning management magazine, this two-hour interactive workshop describes the four critical orientations for anyone putting across ideas:

  • Articulating your purpose
  • Understanding your audience
  • Establishing the credibility of your research
  • Developing a powerful and compelling story.

Participants should come with an idea or story that they want to develop as an influential piece 'thought leadership'.
