Monday I was named an associate at St. George's House, Windsor Castle Windsor. Particularly as an American in London, I'm a bit overwhelmed. It's a post you usually pay to fill, but I was made associate for service rendered to the house.
Windsor Castle Consultations are conversations around insight regarding business, culture, healthcare, commercial practice, organisational values, brand, and any other large internationally relevant topic you can name.
It's what the corporations call thought leadership, although I don't believe you can call anything leadership unless anyone is actually following you. Let's instead call it very smart people from across disciplines making short work of big problems.
Started by Prince Philip, the consultations last about a day and a half and take place entirely at Windsor Castle, complete with the most interesting private tour of the chapel at 10pm I've ever experienced.
In any case, I'm honored to be said to belong among the great minds who participate, fund, and play there.
