Big Tent held its second annual Leaders’ Summit at the end of October, kindly hosted by KPMG.

It brought together over 100 of the UK’s most senior sector and business leaders, journalists and politicians to discuss what’s next for democracy, navigating politics in a digital age, how we can make politics feel truly UK-wide and much more. We were joined by a superb array of speakers including the Rt Hon Sir Vince Cable MP, Julia Hobsbawm OBE, Sir Craig Oliver, Dr Yasmin Fitzpatrick, Matthew D’Ancona and many others.
