/ Who we are
A diverse group of people, personalities and skill sets
It’s the board you can’t afford
/ What we offer
A framework to seek advice, receive feedback and develop leadership skills
The group is a mixture of leaders from a range of industry sectors, from large multi-nationals to founder-led start-ups. Early focus was on the creative and technology industries and this has extended more widely over time.
Much is often asked of leaders without necessarily giving them the appropriate support. Soho15 provides members with the framework to seek advice, receive feedback, develop leadership skills and discuss business challenges with a non-competing group of successful leaders who have faced similar challenges.
Soho15 has a maximum of 15 members and one group leader. It is crucial that the group has the right mix of people, personalities and skill sets. Diversity brings strength. We also ensure there are no directly competing businesses within the group. This means there is an element of selection – with the current members being involved in selecting new peers.
/ How does Soho15 work?
Group meetings, Speaker sessions, Individual coaching
Soho15 members benefit from monthly group meetings, monthly individual coaching sessions, guest speaker events and an annual two day off-site workshop.
Group meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month.
Resources, coaching, discovery and peer group support

About SI Partners
SI Partners is a global M&A advisor and growth consultancy to the marketing services, media and related technology sectors.
SI Partners founder Charles Fallon, a founding member of the Bath15, recognised the need for a similar group for the creative sector and so, with the Bath15’s support, Soho15 was created.
