University to launch leadership centre

The University of Huddersfield is launching a new Leadership Centre to provide practical leadership development to unlock leadership potential and help empower effective performance.

Based at the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre (3M BIC), the Sir George Buckley Leadership Centre will officially launch at a virtual event on 19 January to support aspiring and senior leaders in the region looking to develop their leadership skills in 2021.

Named after Yorkshire-born leader and the University of Huddersfield’s new Chancellor, Sir George Buckley, the Centre will provide development programmes which strengthen leadership skills and empower inspiring, authentic, and effective leaders to meet the challenges of a fast-changing world.

The Centre will bring together leadership development experts from across the region alongside leading-edge thinkers from the University to deliver Chartered Management Institute (CMI) accredited programmes, providing practical learning, peer group networks and specific organisation-based leadership projects.

Professor Bob Cryan, CBE, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Huddersfield, said: “Following a challenging year, it has never been more important to develop the leaders of the future as we navigate through significant social, economic, and environmental change, as well as technological innovation.

“Through the Sir George Buckley Innovation Centre, we aim to unlock leadership talent and inspire future leaders to drive lasting change.”

Sue Alderson, Programme Director of the new Centre, said: “The start of a new year is always a good time to re-evaluate your leadership skills and those of your team, no matter how far up the career ladder you are.

“The requirements of leaders are changing rapidly and the world around us is too, so investing in developing leadership talent will ensure you are well-equipped to face whatever challenges and opportunities the new year will bring.”
