Mark’s presentation is entitled: Strategic Thinking: Learning from History’s Great Leaders—Queen Elizabeth the First.
Elizabeth, the daughter of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, ascended to the throne of England on November 17, 1558 at the age of twenty-five. She succeeded the only surviving child of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon, Mary the First, who died after a five-year reign. Mary, fearing her half-sister might have designs on her throne, imprisoned Elizabeth in the Tower of London for eight months—and effectively kept her under house arrest thereafter. Nevertheless, as she recognized her own mortality, Mary proclaimed “that only Elizabeth could succeed me.”
Thus began a 44 year reign marked by political intrigue, religious strife, precarious national finances, romances, and countless proposals of marriage. Through it all, Elizabeth maintained a focus on one central mission: to unite the divided people of England. She came to embody a truly national consciousness with such success that she gave her name to the Elizabethan Age.
Mark will share her extraordinary story of leadership, identifying both her challenges and the means by which she succeeded, including courage, resolve, as well as masterful negotiation and diplomacy. In bringing her story to light, he will illuminate principles that can strengthen each participant’s leadership in business and life.
