Abstract

It is hard to picture the scene – a manager in a major manufacturing company with a background in chemical engineering, standing on stage in a tuxedo reading Nelson Mandela’s inaugural speech. But 29‐year‐old John Petre, process and packaging‐development manager for soup, with responsibility for all of Batchelors’, Oxo and Campbell’s UK processing and packaging needs, was not the only one that day to let his hair down in pursuit of better leadership skills.
