The forty-ninth Strand Group event, held in conjunction with Allen Lane, will take place on Thursday 22nd April. Sir Michael Barber, author of 'Accomplishment: How to Achieve Ambitious and Challenging Things', will discuss his new book in conversation with the Rt Hon Tony Blair and King’s lecturer and researcher on reform and delivery in government, Dr Michelle Clement, followed by a Q&A.
Sir Michael Barber has spent many years advising governments, businesses and major sporting teams around the world on how to achieve ambitious goals on time. In this book he applies the wisdom he has gained from dealing with large, complex organisations and elite athletes to help anyone tackle their most challenging goals.
Tony Blair is Executive Chairman of the Institute for Global Change. He served as Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from 1997 to 2007, the only Labour leader in the party’s 100 year history to win three consecutive elections. Since leaving office Tony Blair has spent most of his time working on three areas: supporting governments to deliver effectively for their people, working for peace in the Middle East, and countering extremism. In 2017 he established the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change.
