Kate Kirk | Cambridge Innergame LeadershipKate Kirk – Co Author of the Cambridge Phenomenon & 7 Secrets of Great Leaders

I have been researching, writing about, and lecturing on the highly successful Cambridge technology cluster known as ‘the Cambridge Phenomenon’ for over 15 years.

My first book on Cambridge, co-authored with entrepreneur Charles Cotton and titled The Cambridge Phenomenon: 50 Years of Innovation and Enterprise, described the history of the technology cluster, focusing on how it developed after the establishment of Cambridge Consultants in 1960.  I am also co-author of the 7 Secrets of Great Leaders, which distils the habits you need to know to become a great leader.

The second, The Cambridge Phenomenon: Global Impact, detailed the multiple ways that Cambridge companies and technologies have come to be used around the world, every day.

I am currently researching my third book in the series. By looking into the academic, organisational, political and social structures that underpin the Cambridge Phenomenon, I will attempt to answer the question, ‘what are the essential ingredients for a successful technology cluster?’

Simon Laughlin – Head of NeuroScience and trainer. 

I have been a Professor at the University of Cambridge for many years.  I am interested in discovering design principles that govern the structure and function of neurons and neural circuits.  It is interesting in the age of Artificial Intelligence to compare the brain to a computer.  In the past, I have investigated several general problem areas related to the brain.  How are circuits designed to integrate information efficiently? How do sensory adaptation and synaptic plasticity contribute to efficiency? How does the sizes of our neurones and networks relate to energy consumption and representational capacity? Expert in NeuroScience. (Professor from Churchill College, University of Cambridge.)

Ung Lee Ling is an experienced professional in the tertiary education and business fields. Her previous studies for her BBA (OUHK), MSc (NUI) both in Human Resources and her MBS (HKU) have stood her in good stead in her management and administrative roles in International Education while working at universities in both Malaysia and Hong Kong.

This programme was very useful for me because I began to really think about managing and coaching on an individual basis. I now have the tools to be an even better leader, manager and coach. It’s also been a lot of fun. I would recommend Lorraine to anyone who wants to increase their personal performance and get even better at what they do. Which in turn will help increase results and profits.
