Event description

Description

Even the most successful leaders have advice they would like to give to their younger selves. We have all had moments of sudden realisation – or those moments where we kick ourselves – regarding things we wish we had known way back when. Truth is, you can hear this advice now, take it on board, and make significant changes to help you lead better today whilst you are your younger self.

We will introduce you to three influential leaders who come from different backgrounds, experiences, education, and jobs. Their stories and reflections will help give you ideas which will enrich your career and leadership style. Understanding the challenges others have faced and how they have managed to move forwards as leaders will help you to improve decisions in your career and accelerate your development. Because you won’t make these mistakes now that you know about them.

Foolproof’s Amy Shore, a senior UX consultant, will chair the discussion and explore:

  • What advice these leaders wish they had been given when they were younger

  • Mistakes they have made along the way and how it has made them better leaders

  • What lessons can be taken going forward as a leader

  • How to overcome past challenges to lead better
