Elpie Bannister: The Power of Leadership

Elpie believes organizations are made up of groups of amazing people trying to achieve great things. Often great things are achieved through sheer hard-work and determination; sometimes the potential within the business isn’t realised.

Within organisations some people have leadership responsibilities and some demonstrate leadership behaviours – ideally these overlap! Whether through positional or personal power, leaders have opportunity to have a hugely positive impact on the success of organizations due to the behaviours they demonstrate and the culture they nurture resulting in sustained business growth.

In this talk, Elpie will share insights gained through her experience of working in organisations large and small and invite you to consider some important questions as you lead your respective organizations from startup to scale-up.
