The prestigious Oxford Leadership Prize 2009 has been won by GTC DPhil student Nicholas Sabin and Allison Stewart, formerly of GTC and now studying for a DPhil at Worcester College, for their entry Rethinking Boundaries: Leadership, Innovation and the Global Recession.

Sponsored by the Saïd Business School and Green Templeton College, the Prize seeks to find new ideas emerging from the cadre of young, future business leaders and entrepreneurs and attracts an impressive number of entries.

This year the Prize question linked leadership to innovation, entrepreneurship and the global recession, asking: "Enterprise and innovation are as much about people and culture as ideas. How can leadership help to harness entrepreneurship and innovation to combat the global recession?"

Another GTC student, Nadine Levin, studying for an MPhil in Medical Anthropology, was highly commended, for her entry Translating the Global into the Local: Leadership in Community and Agricultural Development.

Their success follows that of GTC's Danielle Logue, DPhil Management Studies, who was a runner-up in 2008.

The Oxford Leadership Prize has been running for five years and offers a £4,000 prize (one of the highest in the University) to the winner and two runner-up prizes of £1,250 each, in a competition which is assessed by a distinguished board of judges.

The competition is not looking for specialised knowledge but rather novel, insightful, well argued and well communicated perspectives on the issues involved.

All submissions are available on the Oxford Leadership Prize website.
