Bring your brain to breakfast and meet some of the UK’s leading business thinkers – these are among the invitations going out to business people around Wales ahead of a new season of free events.

Leadership and Management Wales (LMW), a consortium led by Cardiff Business School, is calling on current and aspiring managers and leaders to attend events, designed to inform and inspire.

They include the popular "Bring Your Brain to Breakfast" events involving speakers, networking and group discussion to get managers and aspiring leaders thinking – over breakfast – about how leadership and management development can help their businesses.

Also returning is The Challenge series involving some of the UK’s biggest business stars in talks and high-level networking events, which will challenge the way managers think, lead and manage.

The new LMW programme also includes "LMW Extra", events sometimes run with training providers or other partners, including taster days and one-off special events with learning outcomes.

Dr Barrie Kennard, LMW’s director, said: "This is probably the most exciting programme we have ever produced. These events will deliver real rewards – not just in providing information, but also new insights into the real, practical value of leadership and management development."

The programme began with a Bring Your Brain to Breakfast event in Wrexham on September 8 and continues through to summer 2012.

The next event is another Bring Your Brain to Breakfast - at the Metropole Hotel, Temple Street, Llandrindod Wells, on September 21. The topic will be staff retention and engagement, and the event will be run in partnership with Antur Business.

More information is available from the LMW Mid Wales office at or 01970 622209.

Leadership & Management Wales is a unique centre of excellence, funded by the Welsh Government and European Social Fund.

It is run by a consortium, led by Cardiff Business School, and including Aberystwyth University, Glyndwr University and Tattum Guest Associates Ltd.
