The Centre for Army Leadership Conference 2019

12 September 2019 / Categories: DA News and Events

Event date: 23/10/2019 Export event

This year’s Centre for Army Leadership’s (CAL) Annual Conference will be held at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst on the 23rd October 2019.

The 2019 Conference theme is ‘Leading in the Digital Age’. It will examine the challenges and opportunities for leadership in the digital age, spanning a range of topics such as organisational structures, information flow, the role of power and authority, problem-solving, decision-making implications, personal development and emotional control.

In today’s complex and rapidly changing world, leaders at every level need not only to be comfortable with the digital revolution but also have the skills to anticipate it, the ability to recognise its impact and the agility to adjust. The 2019 Conference is an excellent means by which to better understand these challenging issues and thrive.
