Sir Alex Ferguson’s hugely successful career not only earned him the title of one of the greatest Sports Leaders of all times, but also worthy of his own leadership study by Harvard Business School. The Harvard study understands how Sir Alex’s methods went beyond sport, and should be a lesson for business people who want to improve their leadership and development of high performing teams and businesses.

John McMaster left home at 17 to start on a journey that led him to top European and Domestic Football Honours with Aberdeen F.C. The pinnacle being Aberdeen’s Cup Final victory over Real Madrid in 1983.

Today John is involved as a scout in the English Premier League whose annual income is a staggering £2.7 BILLION.

A key part of John’s journey was working under the Leadership of Sir Alex Ferguson for 7 years. John has the experience of how a Vision (Sir Alex’s) can turn a highly talented group of individuals (Aberdeen players) to a truly high performing team producing measurable world class results.

John has partnered with Route to Employment (RTE), a Talent Management Company, to demonstrate how the methods and processes employed by Sir Alex can be used by business to great effect. John will discuss in detail how Sir Alex approached Strategy, Decision Making, Succession Planning, Motivation, etc, translating it directly into a business perspective. John’s Real Life examples of Sir Alex in action will form some of the most entertaining business education ever.

Join us in the wonderful surroundings of The Blythswood Hotel’s Cinema Room to learn about leadership.
