Leigh Smyth - Responsible Transformation and Inclusion Director, Lloyds Banking Group UK

Leigh has a passion for tech and data for good and has pioneered a new function for the UKs largest Bank, Lloyds Banking Group, Responsible Transformation. Leigh currently leads the Lloyds Banking Group transformation approach to all inclusion and diversity as well as running multiple programmes using tech and data for good for the banks customers, communities, colleagues and cross sector partnerships.

Leigh joined Lloyds Banking Group in 2012 as Head of Digital Inclusion, establishing and leading the digital inclusion agenda on behalf of the Group. In this role she built Europe's largest digital advocacy network of over 24,000 Digital Champions and also leads the development of the UK’s only behavioural analysis into the digital capability of SMEs, Charities and 1 million Consumers– the Lloyds Bank Digital Indexes. These annual reports are now used by both central and local Government as the UK benchmark for digital capability.

Leigh’s passion for digital for good started during her career in retail, where as Innovation Lead for PC World Leigh launched the first UK computing for children range with Dixon Stores Group. Following this Leigh then moved to the public sector, helping to lead and design the UK Government Home Access Scheme which Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced in 2010 and saw half a million low income families access the power of digital at home. Leigh then joined the UK Digital Champion Baroness Lane Fox in her challenge to remove the digital divide and was appointed as Managing Director for ‘Race Online 2012’. This involved running the organisation including the partnership campaign and the production of the Manifesto for a networked nation, launched with the Prime Minister David Cameron with over 1000 organisations signing the pledge. Leigh is also an entrepreneur, successfully starting a company in her local town of Northampton and mentoring local talent to run their own local business.

Leigh has won several awards for her work and recently been recognised with an award for Outstanding Achievement by Women in Banking & Finance of which she is now an executive board member. Leigh is also a UK Top Ten Digital Leader and a considered thought leader for UK tech inclusion.
