Kevin Murray, Chairman of the Good Relations Group, will deliver a lecture entitled; 'The Language of Leaders' as part of the Distinguished Executive Address Series.

What do leaders think about the subject of communication? What matters to CEOs when they want to inspire the people around them or build the right reputation for their organisation?

These were the questions Kevin Murray put to 60 esteemed professionals, the majority of which are chairmen and CEOs of businesses, charities and non-governmental organisations to form the basis of his best-selling book, The Language of Leaders.
