Cherron Inko-Tariah, MBE. Author/Founder of The Power of Staff Networks

"The panellists were great, really high calibre. And I got a lot out of the discussions. At my table I had a lot of public sector representatives, who do disability and ethnicity really well – so I took lots of notes!

Kirsten Edwards, Associate Director Culture, Engagement and Diversity, Coutts

"Working in the media industry I attend many and varied kinds of events and organise some myself so I know how much is involved. I thought the warm welcome, the inclusive tenor of conversation and the beautifully smooth transitions between different parts of the day were really outstandingly done. You are a real find, I look forward to attending more of them and bringing more colleagues!”

Justine Roberts, Director, Viacom

"Radius really are becoming the D&I one-stop shop, there is so much they offer to help support our organisation, all of it adding real tangible value. Everyone at the EA…including Lord Smith is totally sold on the benefits of working with Radius."

Mike Clark, Head of D&I, Environment Agency

"I have no doubt of your continued value to PwC."

Andy Woodfield, Partner, PwC

"As Chair of the LGBT group I find Radius hugely useful to connect and learn from other group Chairs. There is no other regular forum out there which does this."

Sarah Rock, Chair, LGBT Group, Olswang LLP

"It was really insightful to get an understanding of which areas of D&I other organisations are focusing on, struggling with, specific initiatives they are working on etc. It was excellent how the conversation just flow around a topic. HSBC especially gave me some really good takeaways on where I could be making improvements."

Joanna Chamberlain, Head of D&I, Groupon

"Radius recognises that inclusive businesses are better businesses and use their expertise to help businesses to become more inclusive, share best practice and ultimately become better."

Dale Simon, Director of Public Accountability and Inclusion, CPS

"I think it was an interesting session, the group gelled well and that communication flowed effortlessly. There were a lot of good points that were raised.


It was very useful to get a feel for the types of issues other organisations have been facing with D&I and how this compares with us. I definitely took away some good points, so it was a good use of my time."

Pradeep Madhavan, Legal Counsel, GE Capital

"It was great connecting with companies across sectors, especially young companies like Groupon. The D&I circuit can often be filled with the same faces, so it was refreshing to meet a range of different leaders. I think the balance was just right, especially the mix of Private and Public Sector organisations. Looking at how the different sectors approach D&I and the specific topic set this month, was hugely insightful."

Fiona Daniel, Head of D&I, HSBC

"I thought it was a great mix, especially having companies like Groupon mix with folks like HSBC and the MoD, and all those in between. Radius is creating an excellent, high calibre forum for business leaders who are committed and passionate about D&I to meet, engage, share best practice and ultimately inspire one another!"

Kevin Cavanaugh, Head of HR, Amazon

"I enjoyed the event very much and found it very interesting. Thanks again for providing the opportunity for us to attend this event and I surely will be attending more events in the future."

Sonia Zahiroddiny, Transport for London

"I haven't been to one of your events for a short while due to my schedule, however I just wanted to share with you how much I enjoyed the evening. I can see the Radius business events are going from strength to strength!


I spoke to many people tonight who mentioned that the event/company gave them the perfect platform to network efficiently. Well done from me, a very satisfied customer!"

Gregory Hall, Linklaters

"The crowd was probably the friendliest and most-welcoming I've ever encountered at a networking event. Will definitely be back - and will recommend to friends."

Clare Lynch, Doris and Bertie Ltd.

"Thank you all for a very enjoyable event!"

David Goggin, Managing Director, Insala

"I had so many interesting conversations. Certainly one of the most civilised and well-organised networking events I've ever been to."

Zeb Soanes, Newsreader, BBC Radio 4

"I wanted to write and thank you for allowing me to attend your networking events. To prove its worth today we have contracted to provide an aircraft to a client whom I met at a Radius event.
I cannot go into details for reasons of confidentiality but the Radius model works exceptionally well and has connected two great businesses. Thank you!"

Steven Warner, JetCard Account Manager, Air Partner PLC

"Having attended several of Radius’ Blue Chip events, I’ve always been very impressed with the quality of event. They always offer just the right mix of presentation, discussion/Q&A and networking. The themes have always been very topical and highly engaging, with an excellent calibre of presenters and attendees. If you’ve not managed to make it to one during 2012, make sure it’s at the top of your list for 2013"

Kathryn Townsend, Design Manager, Financial Services, Barclays

"I thought last nights Radius event was exceptionally well organized and professional. I was not sure what to expect, but was very pleasantly surprised! Lovely people and very interesting conversations. As a regular networker I attend many events but Radius really stands out in the crowd. I have heard nothing but positive things about Radius, now I know why."

Sarah Bramall, Publisher Services Account Director, Specific Media

"The Radius Blue Chip event was a great example of how networking events should evolve. No longer does it make sense just to get together because we all happen to be gay – we have friends for that! This evening was rich in excellent content about Digital media with insightful contributions from Accenture, GE and the National Theatre. The topic was very relevant for both businesses and individuals and as the subsequent chatter in the room demonstrated, this was a really valuable way of spending precious time. More please!"

Richard Beaven, Operations Director, Lloyds Banking Group

"Equality of opportunity is a difficult nut to crack. All minority groups suffer as a direct result of both conscious and unconscious bias, so the work Radius does assisting the LGBT community to advance their careers and build sustainable businesses is invaluable. Radius events are attended by senior decision makers from a wide range of business sectors who are welcoming, friendly and genuinely interested in building professional relationships and doing business."

Andrew Hick, Director, Executive Search at Cavendish Hawk

"Radius is genuinely about business and being professional but with a glint of informality. Unlike other gay networks that tend to pose as business centric I have found them to be authentic and have already made business relationships. I would strongly recommend Radius to any LGBT business professional who’s looking to build relationships with similar and likeminded people."

Mark Pavlika, Founder and Talent Director, Morph Talent

"The event was well organised and I was made to feel very welcome. I was pleasantly surprised by the good turnout (the room was full) and I was also impressed by the calibre of the speakers – really refreshing, engaging and knowledgeable people from big name organisations who delivered well-paced, practical and topical content. I’ve picked up lots of useful ideas from the very interesting conversations I had."

Paul Howarth, Senior Policy Advisor, EU and International Equality Policy. Government Equalities Office, Home Office

"Having attended Radius a few times it has now become a regular fixture in my calendar. It provides a good forum for me to meet senior professionals. The networking is very well facilitated. I receive information about the people attending before the event and when I arrive I am introduced to people who I might like to meet. The people attending are there to discuss business, as well as enjoy a good social environment and the events are always held in lovely surroundings. I see Radius going from strength to strength in the coming months."

Jean Balfour, Organisation Consultant and Executive Coach
