Sparrowhawk will introduce insights from his book on cognitive fitness at the third MBA Tuesday Club which will take place at the University of Westminster’s Marylebone Campus from 6pm on 10 January 2017. The event brings together current, past and prospective participants of the Westminster MBA programme, giving them an opportunity to network, keep in touch and learn the latest business practices and ideas.
The recently published Executive Function: Cognitive Fitness for Business covers the importance of cognitive skills and how cognitive health relates to leadership and management performance. It also explains how leadership can be measured and improved upon by cognitive assessment and training, which creates more robust and agile leaders. Speaking about his book, Sparrowhawk said: “This would not have occurred without Westminster Business School.”
