Annual Gathering for Leadership Fellows, 2018

The arrangements for our 2018 Annual Gathering for Leadership Fellows in St George’s Chapel are currently being finalised.  Further details will be available shortly and we now expect that it will take place on Tuesday September 11th on “Challenges of becoming a global leader”.

The main event in the Chapel will run from from 6.15 to 7.45pm and will be followed by a reception in the Dean’s Cloister.

The next day, on Wednesday September 12th (from 8.45am to 3.30pm) we will hold a one-day Leadership Conversation to take forward the discussion that we will open up at the Annual Gathering.  Limited accommodation will be available in St George’s House on the night of the 11th, with a number of rooms reserved for our international Leadership Fellows.

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.

Our Leadership Fellows

After launching the Society late last summer, we are delighted that we now have more than 180 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.

Our next reception: February 26th

Each term we hold a reception to welcome new Leadership Fellows. Our next reception is on Monday, February 26 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. If you would like to join us please contact Nicola.

High Trust Conversations

Together with our Fellows, we have put in place an ambitious programme of high trust Leadership Conversations. For feedback from participants, please see our Latest Feedback page. For the summary of Insights from Fellows during our first 13 Conversations, please see our Leadership Insights page.


Becoming a Leadership Fellow

The annual membership fee payable by Fellows is £240 plus VAT. This covers our core staffing costs and also the cost of events such as our Annual Gathering for Fellows and termly receptions to welcome new Fellows.  In addition, Fellows meet the cost of attending Leadership Conversations, set out at the top of our Conversations page. Before someone becomes a Leadership Fellow we ask them to satisfy themselves that over the coming year at least one of our Conversations would support their self-development as a leader.

Signing up for a Conversation

When individuals become a Leadership Fellow, we ask you to sign up for one of our Conversations over the next 12 months. In the case of international Fellows, we ask for this commitment over a 2 year period. If you look at the programme and can not see a topic that would be of benefit to you, please contact Pete Ashby (details below). One or two of our strongest themes have been developed with leaders who said “I’m not sure you have the right theme for me …” and then went on to develop that theme with us.

Are you a leader …

… committed to your own leadership development and willing to support other leaders with theirs?

If you are, and would be interested in joining our Society of Leadership Fellows, please email our Membership Advisor, Michael Pitfield, with a brief summary of your key leadership experiences:
