Oxford University Museums, in partnership with colleagues from the Saïd Business School, are delighted to announce that its highly successful residential programme, Oxford Cultural Leaders, will be running again 26-31 March 2017. They are now accepting applications through their online portal.
Oxford Cultural Leaders is for dynamic and reflective directors, heads of department, and senior managers who want to challenge and redefine their identity as a leader and their vision for their organisation at a time of great challenge and complexity for the cultural sector. This week long immersive, residential course will be held from 26-31 March 2017 within the University of Oxford’s museums, colleges and cultural assets.
The programme was created in response to the clear message from governments across the globe that cultural organisations need to look beyond the state for their income, demonstrating their commercial acumen and ability to deliver successfully new business models. Oxford Cultural Leaders addresses the need for cultural organisations to reinvent themselves as businesses, albeit not-for-profit, with entrepreneurial ways of thinking and behaving, by developing a cadre of leaders who are able to skilfully and confidently tackle these challenges.
