BEAUTY AT BLENHEIM: Estée Lauder has gone back to Oxford University. The company has introduced a new professional and personal development program for U.K. executives, based on a model started by Leonard Lauder in 1987. The four-day event at Oxford will culminate tonight with a glittering graduation ceremony and dinner at nearby Blenheim Palace, the country's grandest stately home and family seat of Leonard Lauder's friend, the Duke of Marlborough.

The aim of the program is to help executives achieve a work-life balance, and when they weren’t sharpening their mental agility or honing their strategic thinking skills, the 90-odd Britain-based executives were working their muscles on the pitch or in the gym from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m. every day. Dr. Steve Peters, the sports psychiatrist and author of "The Chimp Paradox," was a keynote speaker.

The program is the brainchild of Lauder, who started the U.S. version in 1987. An international version for Lauder executives ran at Oxford for over a decade, until 2001, when the company became global and the programs were combined. The company said that Chris Good, managing director at the Estée Lauder Cos. U.K., plans to run the new Oxford initiative every other year to continue fostering employee development, with participants chosen on the basis of their performance and potential.
