Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader

Our virtual events bring the same inspiration, fun and engaging experience the London Business Forum is known for online. You can expect the same mix of great ideas alongside new levels of interaction and engagement, taking full advantage of technology.

  • Redefine your job so that your contributions are less routine and operational and more strategic and transformational
  • Expand your network so that you connect to and learn from a bigger range of stakeholders inside and outside your company
  • Be more playful with your sense of self so that you grow beyond your old (and possibly outdated) leadership styles

Today’s breakneck pace of change has an immense impact on leaders and, as a result, on their organizations’ capacity to transform. All too often, executives remain stuck in outdated mindsets and modes of operating, even when they recognise the need to reinvent themselves.

Leadership expert Herminia Ibarra upends traditional, introspective advice and says act first in order to change your way of thinking. Whether you are moving into a new role, or leading change in your current post, Herminia shows how you can increase your impact.

With colourful stories and vivid research insights, this interactive event will show how the most effective way to change is through action, not reflection. Learn how to apply a growth mindset to your own leadership capacities.

In order to fully participate in this virtual event, you will need a Zoom account, a webcam and microphone. The session will be recorded but will be available only to those who have booked a place on the webinar.
