Following the first sell-out Thought Leaders Conference in June 2010, The Academy for Chief Executives has announced the second in the series.

On the theme of How to Survive in Challenging Times, the Conference will take place on 16 September 2010 at 2 Gresham Street London EC2V 7QP and will be hosted by Investec Private Bank and chaired by well-known international businessman, Sir Eric Peacock.

Says Founder Brian Chernett “The Academy for Chief Executives is unique in providing a powerful platform through which our members continuously learn and develop their businesses. However, we felt that this opportunity should be available to the wider business community and so our Thought Leaders Conference concept was created. The first was a huge success and we now plan to run them throughout the country over the coming months.”

“Our second Thought Leaders Conference will feature the acclaimed motivational speaker and author, Kevin Kelly, who will be talking about the importance of focussing on the basics to survive in challenging times. Participants will leave with a thorough understanding of how to unleash the full potential of their employees and how to dramatically improve their sales figures. Academy for Chief Executives Chairman, Sir Eric Peacock, will lead the Conference while I will explain the work of The Academy and its enormous success in mentoring members. Entrepreneurs, Directors, CEOs and senior managers are all welcome to attend. It promises to be a memorable event!”

The second Thought Leaders Conference takes place on Thursday 16 September 2010 from 8.00am - 4.00pm.

Following a morning of talks by the keynote speakers, in the afternoon delegates will work together in groups for coaching and mentoring, chaired by an experienced Academy facilitator, and network with successful fellow business leaders.

The fee to attend is once again highly competitive at only £95.00 + VAT but places are strictly limited.
