We held our first Progressive Leadership Summit!

Thrive Life

We launched our inaugural Progressive Leadership Summit on 20 March, in recognition of our sixth birthday.

The event, held at Glean’s office in Leeds, attracted dozens of local and national business leaders, HR personnel and operations staff.

They attended to celebrate our impact over the past 12 months and learn how progressive leaders can drive the development of positive workplace cultures.
