Register here to join our In Conversation Live with Martha Lane Fox CBE

Martha Lane Fox, Baroness Lane Fox of Soho, CBE, is a British entrepreneur, internet activist, philanthropist and public servant. Martha is a Director of Twitter, sits on the board of WeTransfer, and is a Non-Executive Director of Chanel and The Queens Commonwealth Trust. Martha will be joining Professor Henrietta Bowden-Jones OBE (President of the RSM Psychiatry Section) for an insightful discussion on her immensely successful career and where it all started, her responsible tech and the environment work, and her views on a tech-centric national recovery for the UK after COVID-19.  

Instead of charging for this webinar, we are asking people to support the Royal Society of Medicine in these unprecedented times. Now more than ever, we need your help to continue our work. Please consider making a donation for watching this webinar. Thank you for your generosity.

Martha has mastered the fine art of being a successful entrepreneur in multiple industries, but all of her ventures have one thing in common - technology. From Co-founding and Chairing LuckyVoice, which revolutionised the karaoke industry, to Co-founding Lastminute.com, Europe’s largest travel and leisure website, during the 'dot-com' boom of the early 2000s.

Martha founded Doteveryone in 2015 after giving the Dimbleby lecture on BBC1. Doteveryone started a responsible tech movement and in 2020 passed its tools and products to Ada and ODI to scale the work. 

Recently Martha has been appointed Chair of the COVID-19 Committee of the UK's upper parliamentary chamber, The House of Lords.  She intends to use this role, combined with her vast experience and knowledge of the tech sector, to help the UK on its post-COVID-19 recovery path. Read more here.  

Martha entered the House of Lords as a crossbencher in 2013, becoming its youngest female member, and was appointed Chancellor of the Open University in 2014. 

In November 2019, Martha was named as the most influential woman in Britain's digital sector from the past quarter of a century.
