The theme of this year’s conference, “Better Balance Better Business”, will deliver a thought-leadership platform enabling informed debate about delivering balance, diversity and talent management within business.

To ensure that every element of this conference is what leaders are looking for and needing, it has been specifically created by leaders for leaders – with some of the country’s most recognised visionary leaders acting as a steering group for the Forum, which is chaired by Chris Sullivan, Chief Executive of Corporate Banking Division, RBS.

The Women’s Business Forum 2013 will establish the world’s first ‘gender balanced leadership conference’ – with all supporting organisations encouraging 50:50 male and female representation in attendance.

“The balance of high level leadership and gender diverse talent within the delegation will never have been experienced before in the UK.”
