What is leaderFest?

LeaderFest conference

LeaderFest is a conference – with a difference. As with everything MD2MD you will find the emphasis is on pragmatic action.

Rather than sitting listening to speeches and talks from ‘experts’ you will discover LeaderFest encourages interaction. We adapt our core approach of leaders learning with and from leaders to a larger scale by interviewing experienced and interesting business leaders on stage. Then, more importantly, we encourage business leaders like you to engage directly with them through questions and answers from the audience and through private conversations with them and with fellow business leaders between interviews.

 

In another year where major challenges facing business are as pressing as ever, hear new ways to approach challenges from other leading thinkers, take away fresh insights to try out and connect with new supportive colleagues from member companies around the UK, Europe and South Africa.

Who is on stage this year?

This years program promises to be as inspiring and thought-provoking as always. Our CEO, Bob Bradley will be exploring leadership insights, experience and stories through a panel of interviewees and speakers and as always the floor will be open to questions.
