What is the Digital Leadership Forum?

The Digital Leadership Forum is a two-day personal development workshop aiming to support Digital Leads and other Managers lead digital transformation in their organisations.

It’s an opportunity to unwind, slow down, take stock of the past year, learn how to use some of the influencing, leadership and coping tools and create a personal development plan for the year ahead.

Developing ourselves often feels like a luxury when there is so much to do in the office, but it is essential for career progression and becoming better at one's job.

And learning about ourselves needs time. DLF stretches over two days (20 & 21 March 2017). Time for presentations is reduced to allow more space for participants' own reflection, discussion, peer support and facilitated thinking and planning.

If you've had a mentor or a coach, you will know what these two days will feel like. Many of us haven't got much time to think about how we operate in the workplace beyond pure delivery. So when we allow ourselves to do it, we can learn a lot about self and how others perceive us.

The day will be facilitated by Brani with the support of professional leadership coaches. Sessions will focus on discussion and exercises which will provide participants with tools to help them develop their (digital) leadership and influencing skills.

New for 2017

DLF refreshers

We know that it’s hard to find the time to focus on your personal development once you've left DLF. So we’ve started DLF refreshers - quarterly half-day meetings where you can meet with your peers and continue working on your leadership development. Refreshers will be scheduled for June, October and January. There is a small charge to cover for the costs of the venue.


This year's DLF will take place in London, at one of the oldest charities in the UK, The Royal Foundation of St Katharine - a peaceful oasis just east of the City of London and within very easy reach from central London. Dinner between two days will be organised (but we’re all splitting the bill) and we also have an offer of a short local guided tour so you can learn more about this part of London’s history and the significance of the river Thames. The Foundation offers accommodation if you don’t live in London.
