Learning from Leaders in London

Members of my experiential business learning group heard from Roger Evans this week. Roger was elected to the London Assembly in May 2000 and has enjoyed a ringside seat – observing controversial mayors Ken Livingstone and Boris Johnson. He treated CEO members of this London-based group to some fascinating insights to the leadership styles within the city. He also explained how the massive budgets for the Metropolitan Police and Transport for London were monitored and used.

The main takeaway value was the opportunity for the group of 14 leaders present to find their way through the plethora of bureaucracy – enabling them to access opportunities in London particularly building up to the 2012 Olympics. (75,000 contracts and £150 million are being managed by the London Assembly.)
