Leadership Perspectives

The Leadership Perspectives series is the SMF’s premier leadership event. It occurs on an annual basis with the inaugural event having been held in February 2014. Each event in the series brings together a range of esteemed business leaders from across the globe to discuss a particular topic in a panel discussion format.

The event was founded to give our members insight into how management and leadership theory converges with practice. Our speakers give an address on a topic with which they identify within the current year’s theme. A chairperson then facilitates a discussion between the panelists and the audience.
