“Ashridge Business School’s view of what makes a great leader is grounded in its research into the everyday challenges faced by the leaders and organisations it supports and develops,” says Kai Peters, Chief Executive of Ashridge Business School.
“Together with the National Business Awards we believe that the 2014 Leader of the Year needs to be transformational in their organisation and industry; have a major impact on the strategic direction, growth and culture of their organisation; engage strongly with employees, stakeholders and wider society; demonstrate awareness of socio-economic and political trends; and be an authentic corporate citizen.”

"Each of these champions has led significant change in their organisation, industry or sector"
Five transformational leaders demonstrating these characteristics have been shortlisted for the Ashridge Business School Leader of the Year.
“Each of these champions has led significant change in their organisation, industry or sector,” explains Alex Evans, Programme Director of the National Business Awards. “A jury of peers will determine which is the most exemplary, based on a filmed interview focusing on their strategic vision for change; key challenges they have overcome; how openness, engagement and strong values helped them achieve their objectives; and what the culture of their organisation will retain after they have departed. The public can also vote for their favourite based on case studies of their achievements and excerpts from these interviews.”
