Executive Education Leadership Programme 2022

Accelerating the development of Directors and Managers of executive education teams in UK business schools

Overview

The Executive Education Leadership Programme (EELP) 2022 is designed for new, and aspiring, Directors of Executive Education at UK business schools.

Facilitated by Steve Ludlow (formerly Head of Executive Education, Henley Business School) EELP 2022 is a multi-dimensional development programme. Over 6 months participants will develop the knowledge, skills and networks necessary to lead successful executive education teams.

The programme has been designed to suit a variety of learning styles. Sessions One, Three and Four will be attended by the whole EELP cohort and will consist of interactive presentations from experienced executive education professionals, lively discussions and engaging group activities. At each of these sessions there will be a dinner enabling informal networking and cohort building. Session Two is an opportunity for each participant to attend an existing open enrolment executive education programme offered by a Chartered ABS member business school. The cohort will attend a range of relevant programmes in groups of 1-2 allowing each participant to focus on their own personal development and experience executive education as an ‘end user’. This variety of real executive education experiences will feed discussions on the EELP about different delivery models, customer service levels and learning approaches.

In addition to the four main sessions participants will take part in monthly online Action Learning Sets (ALS). Each ALS will be attended by up to 6 participants and will be an opportunity to reflect on learning gain, share common priorities and receive support from peers and the Programme Facilitator, Steve Ludlow.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can 2 people from the same institution attend this programme?

Due to the nature of the programme which focuses on personal development and encourages frank and open discussion, it may not always be suitable for two participants to attend from the same institution. If we receive two registrations from individuals at the same institution we will notify the institution and the participants, taking account of when the registrations were received, and ask for guidance on whether one or both can attend on the same programme.

What will happen to my booking if some/all of the programme cannot take place as planned?

Before the programme starts: If, due to Covid-19 regulations, we are unable to commence the programme on the scheduled start date we will either postpone to a later date, or consider making EELP a blended, hybrid or fully online programme. The decision will depend on the nature of the situation. In the case of postponement registered participants will automatically be transferred to the new dates. If some/all of the programme is moved online participants will have the option of transferring their booking or receiving a full refund.

Once the programme has started: If, due to Covid-19 regulations, we are unable to run Sessions 2-4 as in-person events on the scheduled dates we will either postpone one or more of the sessions to later dates; or we will complete the programme in a blended, hybrid or fully online way. The decision will depend on the nature of the situation. Registered participants will be consulted before any decisions are made and will automatically be transferred to the new arrangements. If the programme can be completed on new dates or wholly/partially online we will not offer full or partial refunds.
