‘Leaders in Lockdown’ is released on the 12th of November.  It’s a unique insight from the women and men who were on the frontline of leading the business world’s fight against COVID-19.

From New York to Singapore to Hong Kong to the City of London it captures a remarkable moment in time when the global economy was brought to a shuddering halt in the struggle to contain a deadly pandemic.

These first-hand accounts of 100 days of lockdown tell stories of leadership in a crisis. They also share the wisdom of some of the world s most thoughtful business leaders as they predict how the world will change because of Covid-19.

In these in-depth interviews, the leaders we hear from include New York Times CEO Mark Thompson; Unilever CHRO Leena Nair: care home leader Sir David Behan; Stagecoach founder Sir Brian Souter; Tata’s people leader Napur Mallick; WHOOP founder Will Ahmed; and trail blazing young venture capitalist Pocket Sun.

Join us at this unique event where Atholl will share the key themes emerging from the book before moving to an open forum where all attendees will have the opportunity to discuss the themes as well as their own experiences.  Shared experiences are at the heart of WeDO, ‘individually we can be successful, together we can be extraordinary’ and this event gives us the opportunity to do just that!
