Westminster Talks is proud to start the new series with a talk by Hilary S. Carty CCMI, Independent Consultant.

Today’s arts, cultural and creative sectors encompass a broad and eclectic mix of organisations – from the well-established opera house, to quirky creative businesses, via heritage, theatres, companies and spaces. The sector also includes a significant proportion of individual leaders – artists, makers, producers, curators, who combine artistic and creative innovation with influence, advocacy and resilience to deliver at the highest levels.

Sectors champion their distinctiveness and acclaim a range of unique characteristics that set each apart in creative practice, engagement and development. But is the leadership the same? In today’s complex environment just how transferable are the skills and competences of best practice? The talk will explore the complexities and challenges of leadership & management in the 21st Century cultural field.

Hilary Carty, MBA is an independent consultant specialising in leadership development, management and organisational change. Prior to working independently, Hilary was the Director of the Cultural Leadership Programme, a £22m government investment in excellence in leadership within the UK cultural and creative industries.
