About Music and Leadership
Music & Leadership is an educational programme designed to provide business leaders with a new platform for discussion on key business issues. Using music as a metaphor Music & Leadership offers unique insight into how leadership, organizational structures and processes run in the music world and understanding how to strategically and constructively implement the same in the business world.
Music & Leadership shares the belief that education and professional development are the most critical factors in helping individuals change their lives for the better. Managers and business leaders are led to understand the importance of interdisciplinary values, an idea first pointed out by Leonard Bernstein, famous conductor and composer, quoting ‘that the best way to 'know' a thing is in the context of another discipline’.
