Stoic Leadership
An ancient PHILOSOPHY for modern leaders

Speaker: Peter McKenzie

In the midst of the current global pandemic, Finance teams and Finance leaders are being tested more than most. Businesses demand more of Finance during times of stress.

How would you like to be seen as a leader?
Strong and decisive, yet fair and considerate?
Action orientated yet willing to take criticism and admit mistakes?
Putting the good of the group over individual success?

A group of the world´s most influential and successful leaders, from Nelson Mandela to Warren Buffet and Bill Gates have turned to a philosophy set down two millennia ago by thinkers in Athens and Rome called Stoicism.

This keynote is based on stories and learnings taken from ancient and modern stoics. This action-packed and practical keynote will challenge participants to apply stoic methods to:

1)Evaluate their own leadership style and values.
2)Reduce stress and increase focus, both as a leader and as a team.
3)Create a culture where respect, collaboration and ethical behavior increase creativity and long-term success
