Leading with the Earth in Mind with Simon Bailey

Join us in an enlightening conversation with Simon Bailey, an expert in the realm of leadership and systemic change, as we delve into the pressing need for a shift in the leadership narrative to avoid environmental disaster.

With over three decades of experience, initially with the British Army leading operations and training across Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, Simon has transitioned into a leading voice in sustainable and regenerative business practices.

Simon co-founded LSP Leadership, a firm that epitomizes the transition towards regenerative organizational values. This includes initiatives like net-positive biodiversity, carbon sequestration through UK land stewardship, and a deep commitment to not-for-profit partnerships partly through “1% for the Planet.”

In this interview, we’ll uncover how Simon Bailey is pioneering a shift in mindset from sustainability to regeneration—inspiring business leaders to not only mitigate harm but to actively enhance and revitalise the environments and communities they touch.

Join us to learn the lessons from Simon’s diverse experience coaching and developing the next generation of leaders who can steer our world away from an ecological precipice towards a thriving, sustainable future.

I recently shared a stage with Chris, speaking at a Business Growth Conference in Mayfair, London.Chris had a tough job as the final speaker at the end of the afternoon, following a series of speeches from highly experienced conference speakers.The organisers were delighted with Chris – he did a splendid job reminding the audience that they only had themselves to blame if they left that conference and failed to take appropriate action. Using humour and pathos, Chris engaged with the audience and left everyone feeling upbeat and raring to go at the end of the day. I highly commend Chris to you as a speaker.
