On our 50th anniversary


2016 marked the 50th anniversary of the founding of St George’s House.  To celebrate this milestone and honour the founding vision of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, the House established the Society of Leadership Fellows to further our core mission of nurturing wisdom.

The Society represents a new community through which leaders can come together and nurture each other’s wisdom.

Our Leadership Fellows

After launching the Society of Leadership Fellows late last summer, we are delighted that we now have over 150 Leadership Fellows. They include among them exceptional business and social entrepreneurs, not just from the UK but also a number of other countries. We are truly proud of them all.

High Trust Conversations

Together with our Fellows, we have put in place an ambitious programme of high trust Leadership Conversations. During our first 8 Conversations, a number of Fellows made important breakthroughs in their thinking, captured in our Leadership Products. For feedback from these Conversations, please see our Latest Feedback page.

Becoming a Leadership Fellow

Leadership Fellows meet the cost of joining Conversations on a pay-as-you-go basis. In addition, the annual membership fee payable by Fellows is £240 plus VAT. This covers our core staffing costs and also supports partial bursaries for Fellows who have difficulty meeting the full fee charged for Conversations.

Signing up for a Conversation

When individuals join us as a Leadership Fellow, we ask you to sign up for one of our Conversations in your first year of membership. This is a sign of your commitment to becoming an active member of our leadership community. In the case of international Fellows, we ask for this commitment over your first two years of membership.

Our next reception: Tuesday October 31st

Each term we hold a reception to welcome new Leadership Fellows. Our next reception will be on Tuesday, October 31 from 6.00-7.30pm with the option to join Evensong beforehand. These are an important opportunity for new Fellows to meet with a range of current Fellows and we look forward to welcoming a good number of our Fellows to this reception.

Annual Gathering: Weds September 6th

Our 2017 Annual Gathering for Fellows will take place on Wednesday September 6, from 6.15pm onwards, on the theme of “Leadership in a VUCA world”.  Here is the invitation for those Fellows who have not yet responded and those who have recently joined us.  Fellows will be most welcome to bring up to two guests with you.

Are you a leader …
