Following on from the successful event of the same name held in London in October, People In Aid and the Center for Creative Leadership are working together again as we look at the organisational leadership journey.

A journey that :

This is the opportunity to discover the very latest thinking - and doing – about organizational leadership.

The Guest Faculty

The guest faculty for October’s workshop brings together two different Center for Creative Leadership professionals. Lyndon Rego has over a decade of experience delivering leadership programs around the globe. He brings insight and experience to this event, especially in his ability to explain the tools and techniques of Collaborative Leadership. Lyndon’s audiences have ranged from the most senior corporate leaders in the Americas, to rural communities in Africa and Asia – his talent lies in the ability to work at both ends of the spectrum.

Aaron White joined the Center for Creative Leadership in 2011 building on a history of international development. Now the Deputy Regional Director, Africa, Aaron has worked in East Africa since 2005. Since joining CCL he has concentrated much of his time bringing leadership development to small communities.

  • An overview of the results of recent surveys in Kenya and comparative results with other surveys in East Africa and the Horn (Ethiopia, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda)
  • Roundtable discussion of key topics of interest to participants, including among others… Determination of the “right” and “equitable” compensation packages in a market where there is not an accepted “market rate” as in Kenya and the region; Statutory versus practice, a case for developing competitive compensation and benefits structures in a defined resource environment; discussing “the what”, “the how”, and ‘the why” of comp in order to then be transparent and knowledgeable in discussing with staff
