2012 lectures: The primacy of virtue

On 12 June, around 80 guests from across the city of London joined us at the Honourable Artillery Company for our summer celebration Tomorrow's Company event.

The keynote lecture was given by Colonel Chris Keeble, itinerant Christian pilgrim and supernumerary fellow at Harris Manchester College, University of Oxford.

Chris’ insights of leadership have been forged literally in battle – leading the UK forces in the Battle of Goose Green in the Falklands. His story shed a powerful light on leadership and challenged us to recognise an ethical imperative and spiritual dimension in war and in peace, and the importance of morals and values in business. He argued passionately that virtue can and must link value and values, drawing on personal experience, literature, faith and other sources.

This was followed by an engaging panel discussion featuring John Knights, co-founder and chairman, LeaderShape; Simon Langley, UK lead manager for diversity and inclusion, National Grid; Richard Sermon, previous sheriff of the City of London; and Nupur Singh, HR director of Tata Consultancy Services.

Please join the discussion at #TomorrowsValue or visit Chris' website for more information.
