Ancient history is full of great leaders who have changed the course of events thanks to their qualities as "shepherds of men". But can we measure these men using the parameters of a 21st century leader? In this brief talk we will try to carry out this experiment, and the results can be surprising. 

SPEAKER: 

Javier Alonso. Writer, Historian, Biblical Scholar, Translator, IE Business School and IE University Professor

The presentation will be followed by book purchasing / signing. 

Javier Alonso (1967) holds a degree in Philology and a doctorate degree in Ancient History, both from Complutense University, Madrid, as well as a Complutense University Master in Languages and Cultures of the Ancient Near East.
