Question: What life experience has influenced you the most?

John Hovell, Director of KM, BAE Systems, is living and working in the UK for 6 months.

He wonders if we're at a tipping point in history where personal and professional approaches to work are about to significantly change.

Come discuss the future of leadership, knowledge, globalization and daily improvement.

From the "Queens Roundabout" (adjacent to the Farnborough "Holiday Inn") on the A325 between Farnborough Town Centre and Aldershot take "GOVERNMENT HOUSE ROAD" towards the "Farnborough Aerospace Centre".

At the bottom of the hill turn right into Gladiator Way and drive through the car park as far as possible (to the rear of the Park Centre.)

Park in the car park and walk around to the entrance to the Park Centre at the front of the building. Then follow the signs.

There is no direct Public Transport. Taxis from Farnborough Main or North Camp stations take about 5 minutes.
