Further information

The purpose of the Leadership in Business dinner is to provide insights into leading industry and brand successes, and what it takes for the business to stay at the top of their game.

Guests can expect the speaker to share their company vision, what makes their brand of leadership in business approach unique, and where they are taking the business next. The value in attending is the personal insight gained, the long term relationships developed in the company of executive peers.

Business Alliance members are invited to join our CEO, Paul Britton, at the exclusive Leadership in Business dinner series where we will hear from Great Western Rail.


With a 182-year-old railway heritage, Isambard Kingdom Brunel had the vision to transport passengers daily across the South West and East regions of the UK, helping businesses with their workforce journeys.

By re-adopting the historical name, the company hopes to “rediscover the pioneering spirit” of the service that first ran on the line in 1833. Managing director Mark Hopwood said the rebrand was a “historic milestone”, to recall what Isambard Kingdom Brunel first achieved. The rebrand is part of a £7.5bn programme, which involves the electrification of tracks, the modernisation of stations and the introduction of new trains, from the collaboration with Hitachi.
