I will argue that those nominated as leaders MUST become aware of what I will call the leader's conundrum and complement their inspiration with 99 x perspiration.

You might want to skip to the topic that interests you most -- the social mobility of women, or of ethnic minorities, current debates about immobility in Britain or whatever.
