Chris Lewis – Founder and CEO of Lewis and author of The Leadership Lab: Understanding Leadership in the 21st Century
Chris Lewis is the founder and CEO of LEWIS, one of the largest independent marketing and communications agencies in the world. They have 650 employees and 30 offices around the world. He is a media trainer who has coached senior politicians, businesspeople and celebrities. He is a published author and journalist featured in The Financial Times, Daily Telegraph and The Guardian. Real leadership combines both logic and emotion, both short and long-term thinking. There is a clear pattern to change and leaders can no longer lead by analyzing and trying to connect the dots separately. They must learn to join them together. “Leadership must see the limitations of the left-brain process,” said leadership experts Chris Lewis and Pippa Malmgrem, authors of THE LEADERSHIP LAB: Understanding Leadership In The 21st Century.
