In November, Dina Shiloh, an Associate in the Reputation Management group in Mishcon Private, was asked to participate in a panel discussion run by the Inspired Leaders Network in conjunction with Newcastle University. Other panellists included the former CEO of House of Fraser, John King; a professor at Hult International Business School, David James; and cofounder and chairman of Leadershape, John Knights.
The Inspired Leaders Network brings together "the best of the world’s Inspired Leaders, business executives and top emerging talent.” With operations across the UK and Africa, it has established itself over the last decade as a dynamic, contemporary and fast moving network. The topic in November was the growing desire for authenticity above all else in politicians and business people, and how that relates to PR disasters, social media gaffes and other contemporary issues. The event was chaired by broadcaster Rene Carayol; the large audience of business people and university alumni also contributed over a wide ranging discussion which lasted 2 hours.
The event was filmed and a three minute clip of the highlights can be viewed here.
