The public & not for profit sector makes decisions that affect all of our lives - usually in full view of public scrutiny.
The growing focus on the healthcare sector from a population with spiralling expectations and often an ageing profile, requires leaders who can manage opportunity and challenge in equal measure.
As world-class organizations grapple with the global challenges of the 21st century, it is their leaders that define success.
