Leading Change: Star Guest Q&A With Natasha Christie-Miller and LSX Co-Founders and Co-CEOs Terry O’Dwyer and Neil Darkes!

Change is the essence of every entrepreneur’s success – whether it’s your first big pivot, moving from startup to scaleup mode, or adapting your culture and processes to new realities.

The next London Meetup features a guest Q&A with two individuals who have embraced change in order to generate a step change in market position and enterprise value.

Natasha Christie-Miller, former CEO and President of Ascential Intelligence, has held leadership positions in information and media businesses for over 25 years. She holds multiple advisory and Board roles including with TED Conferences, Proven Growth and Income, Bayy Agency and Walking on Earth. She has run businesses including WGSN, Glenigan, Groundsure, Money 20/20 and Retail Week.

We will talk to Natasha about the evolving information / media / events landscape and about the power of culture, with particular focus on D&I and opportunities / blockers for female Founders.

We will also have Terry O’Dwyer & Neil Darkes, Co-Founders and Co-CEOs of LSX Leaders. After a powerful pivot to a 1-2-1 partnering led model, Terry and Neil will talk to us about how their business plan has evolved since launch.
