The One People Oration: Learning to Lead
Dame Cressida Dick, Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, gives this year’s One People Oration, Learning to Lead.
The One People Oration is a lecture given each year at Westminster Abbey. The intention of the series is to make people ‘think not only of all Christian people but of all mankind’.
The orations commenced in 1966, the 900th anniversary year of the consecration and dedication of Edward the Confessor’s original church. The phrase ‘One People’ was coined by Edward Carpenter (then Archdeacon, later Dean of Westminster) in 1965-1966.
This year’s oration is given by Dame Cressida Dick, the first woman to lead the Metropolitan Police, and is chaired by the Very Reverend Dr David Hoyle, Dean of Westminster.
In this conversation Dr Hoyle will talk to Dame Cressida about how she evolved her leadership style and what influenced it and continues to do so, across different areas of her life, the people whose example she has followed and continues to learn from, and her own personal leadership experiences.
