daily update from John Bridge OBE DL, Chief Executive

Leadership and Management

There is little doubt that the recovery we all are working hard to achieve from the current COVID-19 challenges will require exceptional leadership and management skills.
In order to enable us all to meet this challenge at a recent “Coffee Break” event Brian Jones, the Chairman of Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce, gave us the benefit of his exceptional knowledge and experience of the difference between leadership and management and the key aspects of this we all need to understand going forward.

I am delighted that Brian has agreed for us to make available the video recording of his excellent presentation which was so well received by all who attended.

Do not miss the opportunity to gain the benefit of Brian’s extensive experience which can be found here
