Sheffield Leader Community Event


The first Sheffield Leader Community Event of 2018 will be held on Tuesday 6 February 2018 and will focus on how leaders build strategic partnerships. This is open to all members of the Sheffield Leader Community.

The event will provide an insight into some of the exciting partnerships the University is building, including a case study of the longstanding relationship with Siemens and the recent development of the innovative MindSphere Lounge. There will also be a practical look at the principles behind good partnership working, which all leaders can use both internally and externally.

The Sheffield Leader Community is the development of networks that support and encourage leaders to do their jobs as effectively as possible, developing their potential and facilitating their involvement in wider university projects. Most importantly it is a community of leaders irrespective of level and role in the University - building on the principles of 'Me, We and Us' and 'Leadership Everywhere'.

Each of the Community Events throughout 2018 will be based on one of the five interconnected themes of the University's Strategic Plan.

To register please see the Sheffield Leader Community webpages. Follow the Sheffield Leader on Twitter @SheffieldLeader.

There is also a toolkit for managers who recruit international staff.

If you would like the opportunity to meet with a colleague from Human Resources to

discuss the support that is available to you as an international member of staff.
