Swindon and Upper Thames

Swindon, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, West Oxfordshire, North Hampshire, and West Berkshire.

Where do we meet?

This group is supported by the Village Hotel Club Swindon, and we meet regularly at this superb venue. The hotel is in West Swindon, close to the Shaw Ridge Leisure Park, M4 Junction 16. All major towns in the Upper Thames Valley and Cotswold towns are within an hour of the hotel.

To the West are the Wiltshire and Avon districts around Chippenham, Trowbridge, Bath, and Bristol. To the North West is Gloucestershire and Cheltenham, Cirencester, Stroud, Tetbury, Malmesbury, and Stow-on-the-Wold. To the South and East we welcome business leaders from the towns of Salisbury, Marlborough, Andover, Newbury, Basingstoke, Reading, and Winchester.

Do you lead tens or hundreds of people?

If so, this MD2MD business leader group will be valuable to you. We’d like to invite you as a guest to experience the power of learning with and from fellow business leaders. Most meetings for the Swindon group start at 8am. Members learn with and from each other through an interactive workshop in the morning, led by a top professional speaker. After lunch, we have a catch-up and feedback session, and the group combines as part of a confidential peer challenge discussion for the remainder of the afternoon. Members depart at 4.30pm to avoid the traffic.

Membership of this group includes the opportunity to bring a senior business guest to the speaker session of each meeting. This adds depth and variety to the session, enhancing the value for each member by providing a chance to develop one of their key people or build their relationship with a key contact.
