The Leadership for Change (LFC) Lectures bring together skillful leaders with experience in dealing with change. Today’s societal challenges are complex and change processes require joint efforts of different sectors of society, which the wide variety of LFC lecturers reflects. The lectures are offered by the Master’s Degree Programme in Leadership for Change enabling students to develop the kind of knowledge and expertise that is needed to explain and understand complex phenomena, become a visionary leader, and to change the world. Through the LFC Lectures we hope to allow the wider Tampere community also to have access to the advice and best practices of visionary leadership minds and organizations and so the lectures are open to the public.
The Master's Degree Programme in Leadership for Change was excited to welcome Jyrki Katainen, President of Sitra, former Prime Minister of Finland and alumnus of Tampere University, as the first speaker of the Leadership for Change Lectures in 2021. In his LFC Lecture, Jyrki Katainen discussed the megatrends of our future. The event took place on Zoom on 22 January 2021.
