Conductor Paul MacAlindin was in a cafe in rain-soaked Scotland when he read an Iraqi girl was looking for someone to put together a national youth orchestra.

Eight years later MacAlindin explains the lessons he learned about leadership from the experience - from the challenge of finding instruments that stayed in tune to the difficulties of persuading enemies to work together, and the heartbreak that came when it was all over.
