In times of disruptive change, leaders have always emerged to bridge the gap between an untenable present and an uncertain future. As our planet careens forward into a world that is increasingly data-rich but certainty-poor, the need for competent and capable leadership is becoming increasingly acute.

Organizations worldwide spend more than $50 billion a year on leadership training, yet only 15% of them believe they have a strong leadership bench and 89% of executives have rated the need to strengthen, re-engineer, and improve leadership as an important business priority.

As organizations strive to become more resilient, responsive and adaptable, leadership needs to be more organic than mechanistic, and more systemic than structured. Developing this new kind of leadership requires a completely different approach. Join this exclusive gathering of learning executives, where we will:

  • Brenda SegrueExplore what it takes to lead a global learning organization within a leading professional services firm whose purpose is “building a better working world.”
    Brenda Sugrue, Global Chief Learning Officer, EY; Duke CE Leadership Experience Host

  • Ignite a fire of collective insights about the future of leadership and learning from those already there. Discover what is required to build a future-proof workplace, and how high-performance organizations are reshaping leadership, learning and development.
    Linda Sharkey, Former Chief Talent Officer, HP; Nigel Paine, Former Head of People Development, BBC; Kevin Oakes, CEO, i4cp; Bruce MacGregor, Partner, IDEO

  • Examine leading-edge research that investigates what we can learn from the worlds of biology and complexity to create robust, resilient and adaptable leadership systems within organizations.
    Martin Reeves, Senior Partner, Boston Consulting Group

  • Experience how the unorthodox dance company Pilobolus practices radical collaborative creativity to generate artistic breakthroughs and imagine how these same practices can be
    exercised within your organization to achieve a step-change in innovation, creativity and leadership.
    Itamar Kubovy, Executive Producer, Pilobolus; and Pilobolus Team

  • Discover the informal “wirearchy” that hides behind the formal hierarchy, and see powerful yet pragmatic examples of how Organization Network Analysis can be used to catalyze change and activate agility within organizations.
    Steve Garcia, Managing Partner, Contemporary Leadership Advisors

  • World of CokeLearn what happens when you take your most senior leaders on a 41 Day Learning Journey around the world. Get a taste of Coca-Cola's Don Keough Senior Leadership Academy experience and how this leadership development journey helps leaders crystalize their global understanding of the Coca-Cola system, and their collective commitment to polish the Coca-Cola brand every day.
    Mark Kaestner, Group Director, Global Learning & Leadership Development, Coca-Cola


“In order to ensure that leadership is ready for what’s next, we must engage in meaningful dialogue around what’s next for leadership development. The Duke CE Leadership Experience, co-located with Training 2018, is specifically designed for this purpose: To explore cutting-edge research and practice in building leadership systems that enable organizations to be more resilient, responsive and adaptable. If you care about the future of leadership, do not miss this experience.
