To be inspired.

To have open, meaningful discussions.

To share and learn from fellow exceptional women.

In our industry it's important to find space for women leaders to share experiences, common concerns and learnings. Earlier this year, we launched Limitless specifically for this purpose.

As we reflect on the initiative, we are delighted to see the Limitless community continue to grow and proud to facilitate such valuable, honest conversations alongside hugely inspirational keynote speakers - India Gary-Martin, 25 year financial services veteran and Dr. Sue Black, one of the most influential women in technology. 

We look forward to welcoming you at the next event in the series for another day of authentic discussions.

Upcoming Event - Thursday 7th November

Location: Hush Mayfair 

Date & Time: 7th November, 12:00-14:30

We are excited to welcome distinguished Labour politician, long-time Leader and Shadow Leader of the House of Lords and Principal of Somerville College, Baroness Jan Royall of Blaisdon.

During her keynote, she will be discussing the role of education for women and the importance of leveraging the learnings of the past to inform decisions for the future, as we navigate geopolitical uncertainty.
