Firmwide Leaders Group

The Group aims to help members attain greater clarity over priorities, new capabilities and skills, insights and practical tips, awareness of policy developments, as well as making new contacts and building relationships.

  • PolicymakerPoliticians, government officials, economists, analysts and lobbyists.


  • Leader: Executive coach Richard Thorby
  • Policymaker: John Rowland of Cicero Group

20 to 30-minute presentations, followed by an open discussion conducted under Chatham House rules.

Our presenters are both heavily involved in the development and deployment of new technology tools that help leaders measure culture and engagement, and make relevant interventions:

  • Penny Newman has championed software that allows dynamic measurement of engagement, giving leaders a rapid perspective on the pulse of the firm. The firm then feeds back with ‘you said, we did’ each month.
  • Thomas Davies's organisation has created a culture workbench that helps leaders continuously measure organisational health and workplace culture, diagnose relative performance, and make suitable interventions.
