Engaging with the Humanities: Clare McCaldin
When the Fat Lady Sings: Leadership and Creativity in Opera
Wednesday 18 January 2017, 12 - 1.15pm
Oxford Saïd is pleased to welcome Clare McCaldin to the School on Wednesday 18 January as part of our Engaging with the Humanities series.
In the world of opera, many experts work together to create an amazing show: everyone from costume and lighting to singers and conductor need to align their creativity to make a final product that audiences love. There are many valuable lessons to be learned from these relationships that illustrate how leadership works.
Leadership involves coordinating different functions and communicating effectively both inside and outside an organisation. This talk will explore just that: how a system of shifting leadership works to pull together the creativity of the skilled experts in order to generate value for diverse stakeholders.
Expect practical demonstrations from a top-class singer!
Registration will open at 12pm with lunch served from 12-12.15pm, the talk beginning promptly at 12.15pm and conclude by 1.15pm. Registration is essential so please click 'Register' above to confirm your attendance.
