Bishops College was invited by Doug Howie of the Willow Creek Organisation to join the Global Leadership Summit on 15 and 16 October 2010, in Cape Town. Forty-two people from the Bishops community elected to attend, including staff from all sectors of the school, students, parents and some students and staff from the LEAP school, who were kindly sponsored by donation.

The two days of video-conferencing went without a hitch, and delegates were entertained with practical messages of leadership and common sense. Bill Hybels spoke about the four Cs (character, competence, chemistry and culture) and Jim Collins about faith and perseverance in business and personal life. Andy Stanley focused on the upside of tension and Adam Hamilton spoke to the topic ‘When leaders fail’. Jeff Manion asked about the need for people to either be ‘here’ or ‘there’ in their lives and the great richness of being ‘in between’, linking this theme to the 40-year journey of the Hebrew nation under Moses.

Blake Mycoskie, founder of TOMS Shoes, told of the agony of people going shoeless through poverty and his company’s determination to make a difference by giving away a pair of shoes for every pair sold – watch this space for news of Barefoot Day at Bishops. Jack Welsh talked of authenticity, energising others and candour in leadership and shared his experiences of turning around General Electric and BP. T.D. Jakes gave 10 encouragements to leaders, including ‘empassion’ those around you; lead, don’t mimic; trust God to deliver; and surround yourself with people who complete you.
