At a time when the “Digital Age” is well and truly here and developing at a pace 'Lead On 2014' is totally focused on the implications for leaders and managers in their use of social and digital media and their impact on communications, relationships, trust, marketing and business growth.

Building on the highly successful format of the last three years, 'Lead On 2014' is a fast-paced and manageable morning of carefully-chosen speakers, inspiration and learning, enabling you to get back to your business and apply that learning in the afternoon.

Leadership in a Digital Age” is chaired by Dr Jonathan Deacon (Reader in Marketing and Enterprise at the University of South Wales, Trustee and Board member at the Institute of Small Business and Enterprise). Jonathan is well known for his passion for helping small enterprises grow using creative approaches to marketing.

Barbara Chidgey, in her capacity as Executive Chair of the Leading Wales Awards, is in a unique position to provide an overview of Leading in a Digital Age. Using case studies of selected Award-winners she will illustrate ‘what works’ in the real world and provide you with thought-provoking suggestions about implementing leadership in a digital age in your business. This will be followed by a focussed Q&A session.
