Vestd celebrates International Leadership Week with The Business Pharmacy!

The science of success is big business. Everybody from snake oil salesmen to academic institutions are doing their damndest to identify and bottle whatever it is that makes the likes of Musk, Massenet and Bloomberg so intensely superhuman.

To celebrate International Leadership Week, Vestd, the UK’s most popular share scheme platform, will be launching a brand new interview series that explores the components of success.

Vestd’s marketing team has rounded up some of the most innovative and influential founders from across the UK to ask them what their ‘prescription’ for prosperity is. 

The resulting ‘Business Pharmacy’ series will be published throughout November and December, with featured founders unveiling the secrets of their achievements.

Throughout the series, readers will gain a deep insight into just what it takes to rise to the top.

Why now?

International Leadership Week is the perfect time to launch the Business pharmacy project.

Running from Nov 22nd - Nov 26th, the theme for this year’s celebration is ‘leadership reinvented’. 

The past two years have brought leadership under the spotlight as traditional leadership values have been challenged by aggressive changes in the workplace.

Nearly half of all Britons were working remotely by late spring 2020 and since then, we’ve seen radical shifts in what we collectively want from our leaders and what we want to leave in the past.

This ‘WorkQuake’ has led, in part, to The Great Resignation of 2021, in which nearly 5% of the workforce has quit their jobs. Many of this number will be looking to strike out alone to create their own fortunes. 

What have they learned from the mistakes of their employers and what sort of leaders will they become?

A global shift

Historically, global events like Coronavirus have been followed by revolutions and cultural renewal. The Renaissance followed The Plague, the retreat of the Spanish Flu signalled the start of the roaring twenties and the end of World War 2 unleashed the vivacity of mid century expressionism.

Covid19 looks set to do the same and the decade ahead of us is bursting with promise. We can anticipate new leaders emerging from every imaginable field of endeavour and entrepreneurialism. What will their impacts be on the world?

Vestd’s founder and CEO, Ifty Nasir, says that the project, “seeks to sow the seeds of victory now by gaining leadership knowledge from those forging new paths.”

The new series looks to deliver actionable insights and practical advice as to how leadership thinking has changed. The interviews will be published on Vestd’s blog and circulated on social media.

From all at Vestd, Happy International Leadership Week!
