Leadership and Management Academy: celebration event for 2020 alumni

July 10th, 2020

Staff from across the University joined together to celebrate their completion of the Leadership and Management Academy’s leadership and management programmes 2020.

On Wednesday 8 July the Leadership and Management Academy (LMA) hosted their first ever virtual celebration event to recognise and celebrate the achievements of  over 180 colleagues who participated in LMA core leadership programmes this year.

During this time of crisis, colleagues continued to develop their leadership skills and found their feet in the lockdown world, sticking with and completing their programmes which had moved rapidly to digital delivery. It was great to see participants, their line managers, external learning partners and guest speakers all taking the opportunity to raise a glass (or mug) in celebration.

It was hugely impressive to see the amount of commitment, time and effort that had gone into the programmes and hear from participants who shared their reflections on how the programmes have impacted them.

It was also great to hear from Professor Sarah Speight (who has previously been a participant on a number of LMA programmes) as well as having the chance to see everyone who had been involved across the 4 programmes.

Professor Shearer West shared her own reflections on leadership at the University and responded to each of the guest speaker stories in support of what they had achieved. You can watch the celebration event alumni video here.

The LMA would like to thank colleagues for the dedication, collaboration, peer support and kindness that has been shown in such difficult circumstances.
