Welcome to Leadership Jersey
Our objective is to promote and support the development of better leadership in all aspects of life in Jersey. We are strictly not for profit and politically neutral, we just want to see more great leaders on our island in types of business and the not for profit sectors, at all levels.
We aim to provide a programme of speakers and events that are available to access at an affordable cost for all, with any profit after costs being donated to local charities.
Ralph Nader said “the function of leadership is to create more leaders not more followers, in essence that is what we are all about”
Kevin was born and educated in Jersey and has gained over 40 years experience of working in here. Roles have included Finance Director of Le Riche Group, Managing Director of Jersey Dairy, Chairman of Jersey Water, Chief Executive of Jersey Post, Advisor to the States of Jersey, and most recently Interim Chief Executive of Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.
Over the last few years he has become particularly interested in the contribution leaders make to organizational success and failure. This interest has led him to founding a not for profit initiative called Leadership Jersey which aims to encourage more recognition of the importance of great leadership and in turn a lot more focus on leadership development in all sectors of Jersey life.
