An expansion of our quarterly leadership development forum for board directors and senior executives.

Meaningful Human Leadership: 

New models of leadership, business and people in a changed world

Wednesday 12th June 2019

Bounce Old Street, EC1V 9EY

While promising to release life and potential, the revolution we are in seems instead to be putting mental health under strain.  Are we enslaved by, or in control of, our technologies?

The Meaningful Human Leadership conference calls on the one group who can make a difference: YOU. 

You are the leaders of today and tomorrow. How can you think differently and re-assert the human and the meaningful  in your leadership?

  • Be inspired by speakers from industries with extraordinary emerging technologies.
  • Hear how Formula One, health, professional and security leaders have helped people with technological change.
  • Learn what has worked.
  • Gain insights from multiple sectors that you can apply.

Our conference asks the question, how can we help people thrive in this age of fast change?

Come to Meaningful Human Leadership this summer to put the people back in focus.



The conference will be a private event at Bounce Old Street, Hoxton, London, EC1V 9EY.

We will stay at Bounce for the evening networking in a private area with it's own private bar, bathrooms and, of course, pingpong tables.....

The closest stations to the venue are:

  • Old Street (Tube and National Rail) - 3 min walk to Bounce
  • Shoreditch High Street (Overground) - 11 min walk
  • Moorgate (Tube and National Rail) - 13 min walk
  • Liverpool Street Station (Tube and National Rail) - 14 min walk


Conference Chair

Niki Fuchs

Niki Fuchs"I have always been a bit of a wild child and did manage to find trouble where most girls my age couldn’t. So, by the time I had finished my A-levels, University was not an option for me. I don't regret this, but as I got older, I realised that I wanted to learn more and so I'm actively engaged in a programme of personal development and self-directed learning.

Giles and I started Office Space in Town in 2009 having sold City Executive Centres Ltd to MWB Group in 2005. What a journey! I wake up every day looking forward to going to work. I am lucky to be working with a brother whom I respect and love, but just as importantly, I am surrounded every day by the most amazing individuals who make OSiT what it is. Each and every one of our staff is an inspiring individual who gives their all to make our clients happy and their businesses run smoothly.

My vision of success is for everything to continue as it is!"

Key Speakers

Emma Stroud


"I help high-level CEOs, MDs, authors and entrepreneurs realise the power and truth in their story, and how they can use it to positively influence and inspire others. It is about helping them to unpick their unique ability to connect with their true self and their wider purpose and I have helped thousands of people raise their impact through this process. I have helped people work on their TEDx talks, keynote presentations and so much more...

I also host global events, the one of the most recent European Women in Sales Awards in 2017. I am, and have always been, a comedy performer. My next one woman show is in March 2019 following the success of my award-winning sellout debut in London in 2015. I also perform in a London comedy improvisation troupe, the Banana Bunch.

I have recently been featured in the Telegraph, Diva Magazine, BBC Radio and the Lorraine Show."
