Vision & Momentum

Paris - London

An extraordinary breakfast series for purposeful leaders

Hungry for even more impact?

You’re a high-achieving leader in tech, digital or another fast-moving sector. You're accomplished, you know how to make things happen, and you are hungry for even more impact.

You want to create extraordinary results in the next 12 months and play a bigger game than ever before.

You’re tired of ‘being in the trenches', but you’re not sure your team are galvanised and playing at the right level.

Vision & Momentum is for you. You'll sharpen your vision for the impact you want to create, shift your mindset around ‘the next-level you’, and set yourself up for more progress and impact than you thought possible.

Ready for a different type of event?

"...when you're the smartest person in the room, you're in the wrong room..."

In theory - getting outside your daily routine, meeting peers, and receiving fresh input should be incredibly valuable.

In practice - you're tired of seminars, business breakfasts and meet-ups that sound interesting but end up being a case of “bum on seat, brain disengaged”.

Let's face it:

You don’t need:

  • another dry business breakfast
  • more slides, more information, less action
  • another awkward networking event.

You do want:

  • a clearer, more inspiring vision
  • a more powerful and strategic game plan
  • to accomplish things that seem ‘impossible’ right now

We get it, so we've decided to do something rather different from your average meet-up.

Vision & Momentum 2020

Sharpen your vision for the impact you want to create, expand your sense of ambition, and set yourself up for more progress and impact than you thought possible

Vision & Momentum is not another seminar - it’s an invitation to experience personal transformation and new results. Because when we change, everything changes.

We’ve designed it with help from the transformational experience coach who developed the XPRIZE and Singularity University’s flagship events.

And it starts when you say yes to making 2020 your year.

A transformative experience


  • you’ll create valuable new connections
  • you’ll be guided through the design of your custom ‘launch plan’
  • you'll learn how to maximise your personal return from the event


  • there’ll be no more than 20 leaders in the room, all of them top performers
  • as soon as you arrive you’ll be immersed in powerful, meaningful conversation
  • you choose how you want to play: soak it all in or go for edgy hot-seat coaching


  • a bold and inspiring vision for your coming year
  • clarity on what’s holding you back and how to overcome your obstacles
  • concrete (and surprising) next steps to move you forward


  • we’ll help you keep your vision in front of you, and stay accountable to any commitments you make
  • there’s also the opportunity to receive 1:1 coaching to address specific obstacles you may encounter

This isn’t a money-maker for us. But it’s a key part of our vision: to catalyse visionary leaders to play a bigger, bolder, game than ever before and make a huge positive impact on the world, their business and their teams.

Are you ready to challenge yourself to create momentum in 2020?

I love Richard's ability to find the right angle of attack to spark self-reflection on my role as leader. He made me sit up and take action!

Richard Medcalf

Richard Medcalf describes himself as "what you get if you were to put a McKinsey consultant, a slightly unorthodox pastor and an entrepreneur into a blender".

Richard is an executive coach & leadership consultant to exceptional founders and senior leaders in the tech/digital sector (and their leadership teams).

His clients are elite performers who've already achieved incredible things, and still have the ambition to 10x their impact and influence and achieve something that seems impossible right now. That can involve 1:1 coaching, taking the leadership team to its next level, or scaling high-performance culture throughout the business.

After a Masters Degree at Oxford University, where he came top in his year, Richard started his career in a premier strategy consultancy where he rose to become the youngest-ever Partner. He then spent 11 years at tech giant Cisco, firstly elevating Cisco’s relevance in the C-suite of its Fortune 100 customers before being selected for an elite team set up by Cisco’s President and CEO, John Chambers and Chuck Robbins, to catalyse strategic partnerships & new business models.

Richard has advised Founders and C-level execs for 20 years,  from Fortune 100 companies (Comcast, Mastercard, Sanofi, Sky, Orange, Bosch…) to high-growth tech firms (in AI, networking, robotics, fintech, …). He has overseen >$2B of deals.

Keen to marry the disciplines of strategy and leadership in service of his clients, he qualified as a senior leadership consultant and executive coach with GiANT Worldwide before founding Xquadrant in 2017.

Richard is bi-national English/French, lives near Paris, and is happily married and the proud father of two. He's also a licensed lay minister in the Anglican Church, and has an insatiable love for spicy food and the electric guitar.
