Event description

Description

Leaders Now is a series of breakfast meetings aimed at the social sector and is run in partnership with The House of St Barnabas; the Soho based charity, whose not-for-profit members’ club is run as a social enterprise to help London’s homelessness back into lasting work. These influential figures share insights into their leadership journeys, and guests have the opportunity to engage in discussion and question and answer sessions in an intimate setting.

The free breakfast meetings are a networking space for those interested in, or working for the social sector. Through the partnership with The House of St Barnabas the events bring together current and aspiring leaders to encourage new thinking and collaboration about social and ethical leadership.
