The last year has been the biggest test of leadership in our living history.

For organisations, large and small, to not just survive - but to thrive into the next century, will require a special kind of leader.

Using your own thoughts, ideas and experiences: 

  • what do you believe the qualities of a leader that  is able to lead a company not only to short-term success, but one that will be successful for many generations to come are; and

  • what areas in particular does that leader need to focus on to ensure that enduring and long-lasting success?

One of the key factors in achieving sustainable success is to ensure that the needs of all stakeholders are considered and addressed.

But how else can you establish a sustainable and successful business?

“Taking part in the essay competition gave me the opportunity to explore and deepen my understanding surrounding a really interesting subject matter.

“I initially entered the competition to reflect upon my own experiences having participated in the YE company programme and to share what I learnt about business leadership and success. But I now feel that my confidence in writing about a subject that I previously knew very little about has been lifted, and the competition has really helped me in this way. Winning the Sustainable Success Award was such an incredible honour that I am so grateful to have achieved, especially since I believe the message in my essay was an important one which applies both within and outside of the business world.”
