Who is Leaders of
Change for?

The Leaders of Change Programme at LREF has been designed for the leaders of the most progressive and rapidly growing businesses across the capital. 

With agility, talent and wellbeing at the top of many corporate agendas, CEOs, CFOs, and HRDs are exploring the role property can play in furthering their corporate objectives. 

LREF provides the perfect platform to bring Leaders of Change together with the property market to tackle issues that are facing businesses across the world. 

*Complimentary Leaders of Change places are strictly limited to the senior management teams of non-property organisations.

These places are ideally for CEOs, CFOs, and HR Directors and limited to two people per organisation.

We are reserving 200 Leaders of Changes places at LREF this year for non-property organisations to bring them together with the property market at LREF to explore and discuss the role property can play in furthering their corporate objectives.
