Leadership Series

Bailey Fisher’s Leadership Series brings together top entrepreneurs, investors & influencers from the technology sector, with inspirational individuals from other walks of life, to share ideas and celebrate successes.

We’ve welcomed over 4,000 guests to almost 100 events, from roundtable dinners & panel discussions to prestigious receptions at the House of Lords.

During 2020 our Leadership Series found a new home online and we’ve enjoyed welcoming guests to some fun and informative discussions.  Whilst we’ve not been able to meet in person, the ethos has remained the same – bringing together C-suite leaders to share ideas with their peers in a relaxed environment. We plan to restart our in-person events from Autumn 2021.
