Leadership and the Business of Change

The next JLA Breakfast will look at the big issues affecting business and business leaders, from dealing with and leading change, to technological, political and social disruption and building a robust organisation. To reflect on their experiences and insights in all of these areas and more, we’ll be joined by former Lloyd’s of London CEO Inga Beale, former Channel 4 CEO David Abraham, and RocketSpace General Manager and former diplomat Priya Guha

This free event will take place at 1 Wimpole Street, W1 on Wednesday 30th October.

Inga Beale led the 300-year-old insurance institution Lloyd’s of London. As CEO she faced complex business challenges, and attempted to make a traditional, unique business fit for the 21st century. She pushed the company into new global markets, worked to embrace digital platforms, and changed the culture and attitudes towards diversity within Lloyd’s and the wider insurance industry.

David Abraham was in charge of Channel 4 during a period of unprecedented change and disruption, culturally, politically and technologically. During his tenure the broadcaster dealt with the rise of streaming and increasing scrutiny on their impartiality, he led the decision to drop many long-standing, popular programmes, grow the Film4 production arm, and move into sports broadcasting including their acclaimed Paralympic sports coverage.

Priya Guha is the Ecosystem GM for RocketSpace, a California-based startup incubator, and is an Advisor to venture capital firm Merian Ventures. Taking an unorthodox route in to the tech sector, Priya was a diplomat, stationed in Spain and India, before being appointed British Consul General to San Francisco. The role gave her unique access to the workings of Silicon Valley behemoths as well as startups, witnessing how their leaders operated and developed strategy. She now focuses on the intersection of innovation, the tech sector, and government.

Please join us from 8.30am. Speakers will be on stage at 9am until around 10.15am.
