Chair Bio

Bob Battye

Birmingham UK, Vistage Chair 

I work with business leaders and their management teams in the West Midlands with their professional and personal growth thus increasing their effectiveness, enhancing their lives and making strategy happen. Working as a Vistage Chair and as a Strategic Planning facilitator and non-executive director. 

Good prospects for me are successful Business Leaders running companies over £5 million turnover with more than 25 employees who are eager to learn and grow.

Vistage works because in every group and in every meeting, no topic is off-limits. If you are willing to talk candidly about the tough decisions you face, fellow members will rally around you, listen, ask tough questions and bring to bear every resource they have to help you grow as a leader and improve the workings of your business. When our members have access to new perspectives – whether from fellow business peers, their Vistage Chair, or expert speakers – they expand their view beyond their company walls in a way that traditional executive leadership training just can’t offer.
