Dr Kerry Schott AO – A Masterclass in Power

12 August 2015

  • A new and unique event which provides an opportunity to learn from an expert about how to achieve power in your chosen domain, be it corporate, public sector, not for profit or somewhere else.
  • A very practical and focussed event: you will learn from the master how to achieve power, how to wield it wisely and ethically, how to ward off those who would bring you down and – perhaps most important of all – how to gain personal satisfaction from having power.
  • Limited to 50 people. You will not be in an auditorium full of people each with different expectations and no chance of having your individual needs addressed.
  • One on one engagement. You can submit your question or topic for discussion to the master in advance and be guaranteed that it will be addressed in the class.
  • Our Chatham House rule means all conversation will be confidential and therefore frank. The only way to really learn.
  • Networking drinks following the two-hour Masterclass will allow you to meet, mix with and connect with the leaders of tomorrow.
