Event description


If someone were leaving a meeting you chaired, what are the three words you would want them to describe you with?

Back by popular demand after an eye-opening talk at last year's SCS Conference, Shaheen Sayed is speaking on the topic of performing in meetings.

We often think of performance in terms of performance management. But the truth is, we're performing all the time - in 1-1's with our line managers, in front of Ministers, and even in our run of the mill team meetings. Shaheen's talk will touch on how we take control of how we are perceived by others and project the image we want others to see.

Shaheen leads Accenture's Health & Public Service Business in the UK and Ireland. She is responsible for providing transformational solutions to the public sector using new platforms and ways of thinking. Shaheen holds significant experience from her global career at Accenture where she has led complex technology and business transformation programmes for clients across the public and private sector, both in the UK and globally. As a ‘’hands on’’ practitioner, she has driven some of the most complex implementations in Justice, Health, Rural Affairs and Capital Markets. Most recently, she has been working as an advisor to senior Financial Services clients at the forefront of their digital transformation and driving first-in-kind innovation from inception to execution.

Shaheen is a respected adviser on inclusive business cultures and is a recognised thought leader on human capital and the evolution of talent in the digital age. She was recently included in the Top 100 influential Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Global leaders by the Financial Times and EMpower. She is a passionate campaigner for Inclusion & Diversity in the City, with a specific focus on Social Mobility and Race.

Shaheen is also a member of The Prince’s Trust Business in the Community (BITC) Race Leadership team.
