This Year's Event

Since its launch in 2010, LeaderFest has grown to become one of ​Thames Valley’s​ premier annual events for business leaders, offering a unique opportunity for business leaders to learn with, and from, their fellow business leaders.

This is a great opportunity for Managing Directors and other business leaders from across the UK and especially from the Thames Valley, Home Counties and South Midlands to develop their leadership skills whilst networking with, and learning from, fellow leaders.


This year the event returns to Village Club Hotel Swindon,the venue of the very first LeaderFest seven years ago in 2010.


At the event this year the process will be to work with peers – fellow business leaders – on practical activities that develop your leadership coaching skills. You will become even better at getting the very best from your teams. You’ll develop your ability to motivate your staff whilst also ensuring they are totally accountable for their own performance.

You’ll be participating in the same interactive and practical workshop used by world leading firms such as Google, Twitter, LinkedIn and Vodafone to develop their senior management.

Whilst revenues matter to all business leaders, the culture of LeaderFest is one of mutual respect and trust which discourages the inappropriate sales pitches that detract from many networking events.

LeaderFest is, like MD2MD, about leaders learning with and from other leaders and​​ as such​ is strictly targeted at people leading an organisation of at least 10 people.
