Leadership, Communication and Vulnerability – a talk by Simon Lawson

November 15, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm

Simon is Chairman of Lawsons Timber, Building & Fencing Supplies, the largest independent Timber, Building Materials & Fencing merchants in London and the South East and also one of the most profitable in the sector with 17 branches and a turnover of over
£95m. The family business was founded in North London in 1921 by Simon’s grandfather and great-grandfather and was the first to sell fencing materials cut to length and ready treated.
Lawson’s mission to ‘make work as interesting and satisfying as possible’, puts the well being and happiness of its 450 employees firmly at the centre of the firm’s culture.
Simon will be explaining how the themes of Leadership, Communication and Vulnerability
have shaped his vision and has allowed Lawsons to be a profitable business that is still
centred on what “the people need out of it, rather than what shareholders, or the stock
market, or the pension fund wants out of it.”
