2018 Annual Gathering: Tuesday September 11

This year’s Annual Gathering for Leadership Fellows will take place in St George’s Chapel on Tuesday September 11th. It will be on the theme of “Challenges of becoming a global leader, and will run from 6.15 to 7.45pm, followed by a reception in the Dean’s Cloister.

The next day, on Wednesday September 12th we will hold a one-day Leadership Conversation (from 8.45am to 3.30pm) 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, and so at this early stage we are giving priority to bookings from international Leadership Fellows.  If you plan to travel from overseas to join us on September 11/12, please drop a note to Nicola Pryer (details below) and we will provisionally reserve a room for you in the House.

We will open up bookings to UK Fellows at the beginning of April, and give priority to those who have a considerable distance to travel to Windsor.

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 in the second part of 2016, we are delighted that we now have 220 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.

A maximum of 250 Fellows

St George’s House will be appointing up to 250 Leadership Fellows. Once we have achieved this limit, we will only make further appointments when individual Fellows decide not to renew their fellowship for a further year.

Our next reception: February 26th

Every three months we hold a reception to welcome new Leadership Fellows. Our next reception is on Monday, February 26 from 6.00-7.30pm. The list of Fellows joining us is here, and if any more Fellows would like to join us please contact Nicola.

Becoming a Leadership Fellow

The annual membership fee payable by Fellows is £240 plus VAT. In addition, Fellows pay a separate fee when they attend one of our high trust Leadership Conversations. These fees are set out at the top of our Conversations page. Please see our Leadership Insights page for their key outcomes and our Latest Feedback page for the views of Fellows joining our Conversations.

Signing up for a Conversation

When an individual becomes a Leadership Fellow, we ask you decide which Leadership Conversation you wish to join over the next 12 months. In the case of international Leadership Fellows, we ask for this commitment over a 2 year period. If you are unsure about what these Conversations involve, please scan one of the agendas on our Conversations page.
