About Us

Welcome to the Leadership Institute



William J Clinton Leadership Institute

The William J Clinton Leadership Institute at Riddel Hall brings world class facilities, leading academics and industry experts together to deliver a high end portfolio of executive education and leadership programmes.

Riddel Hall is located in a unique eleven acre parkland site in South Belfast.  It has been refurbished with a contemporary styling that doesn't lose any of its rich heritage.  This exceptional facility is the perfect location for business leaders to come together and learn.

As specialists in executive education, we are dealing with the highest level of business people and their associated organisations.  The credibility and strength of our team is critical to our success. 

We have assembled a group of people with the experience and influence to make a difference at every level of our interaction with you.  We are ambitious and forward thinking.  We are not afraid to challenge assumptions, create new ways of thinking and do things differently.

In 2016, the Leadership Institute merged with the Queen's Management School.  As, one of the top business schools in the UK and Ireland, Queen's Management School prides itself on offering a world-class range of unergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes in Accounting, Economics, Finance & Management.

A globally renowned centre of management education and research, it enjoys close links with the business community, a dedicated placement office and a financial trading room.

A select group of companies across Northern Ireland has donated more than £1m to support this initiative in Riddel Hall recognising the key role that Queen's University and the Leadership Institute will play in the development of a sustainable  and competitive economy in this region. 

These Founder members are demonstrating highly visible leadership and support for this project which they believe is important for our future economic prosperity.  Through the exchange of expertise, advocacy and thinking, they will contribute to Northern Ireland's success and become a part of Queen's influential network at home and abroad.
