VENUE: Titanic Belfast

TIME: 8:00AM – 1:30PM
The Calibro Workspace team are excited to announce that we are exhibiting at the MLN SuMMit event in Belfast on Friday 13th May.
Business and Public Sector leaders from across Ireland are using the SuMMit as an opportunity to step back from ‘urgent’ tasks and consider what is ‘important’ for them and their organisations. The event provides world-class stimulus that triggers fresh perspectives, disruptive thinking, new ideas and an impetus to act. It has received acclaim from the leaders of micro-businesses, SMEs, Corporates, Local Government, Central Government, Charities and Social Enterprises.

It is fitting that, in the first SuMMit since the Covid-19 crisis, we hear from a health professional who takes on a leadership role where the stakes are high and the outcome, on many occasions, is the difference between life and death. As a Consultant Paediatric Surgeon of some 30 years, Bill McCallion has developed fascinating insights into the traits of leaders, particularly when it comes to performing in critical situations. His thought-provoking ‘5 As of Leadership Model’ is applicable to any and every management context.
