Leadership values – from here to where?

Alastair Wilson being questioned by Will Norman, Principal Research Associate at the Young Foundation.

UpRisers took part in a learning session on 18th August, which focussed on their leadership values and vision for the future. The session was hosted by Queen Mary, University of London, and kicked off with a Q & A session with Alastair Wilson, Chief Executive of the School for Social Entrepreneurs.

Alastair Wilson spoke about the values that influenced his career – both in starting up Homeless Direct, a capacity building project which supports local providers of emergency care for homeless people in recruiting donors and volunteers, and in his work with the School for Social Entrepreneurs. Alastair also shared lessons from his experience working in the third sector.

The Q & A session was followed by breakout workshops focussed on UpRisers identifying their personal values, leadership competencies and visions for themselves, their community and the world.
