Mr Fletcher said: “In any sector of society – whether it’s business, education, media, science or politics – leadership is all about facilitating proactive cultures.

“Our extensive 2020Plus research has shown that leaders who inspire innovation articulate a vision of the preferred future, for the enterprise and the city.

“They marshal activity, bringing together people with particular skillsets.

“In short, they shape cultures in which people flourish and projects fly.”
