Apologies – registration for this event and the waiting list have now closed.


We are delighted to invite you to the Women in Rail Annual Conference on Wednesday 5th December 2018.

The conference will take place between 10.30am (registration from 10am) and 4pm at the offices of Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP, Adelaide House, London Bridge, London EC4R 9HA and will be followed by drinks and networking from 4pm to 6pm.

This year, the theme of the conference is “The Power of Great Leadership: successfully leading oneself and empowering others”.

Our keynote speaker is Dame Inga Beale (former Chief Executive Officer, Lloyd’s of London) who will present on her personal story as a successful leader, from her early days at Prudential to her recent role as CEO of Lloyd’s.

During the day, we will also hear from inspirational leaders Rob Brighouse (Chairman, East West Railways Company), Staynton Brown (Director D&I and Talent, Transport for London), Dyan Crowther (Chief Executive Officer, HS1), Polly Payne (Directors General for Rail Group, Department for Transport) and Nicola Shaw CBE (Executive Director, National Grid) and Deborah Hulme (Minerva Engagement) will give us a fascinating insight into the neuroscience of leadership.

Places for the conference are limited so if you wish to attend, please register your interest below.

Attendance to the conference is free but we would really appreciate it if you would consider making a small donation to the Women in Rail Charity to enable us to continue our work MyDonate – Women in Rail

We hope you will be able to join us and look forward to seeing you on the 5th December!

Best wishes
