The focus in this edition is on growing talent and the importance of strong and empathetic leaders in all businesses. In the magazine we hear from graduates, a current student and a building society CEO about the impact of the BSA/Loughborough University Business School MSc programme and what it has delivered.

In addition, we feature two BSA members on very different, but equally fascinating strategic topics, along with the reflections of the BSA Chair, Mark Bogard, as he nears the end of his time in the post.
