We are delighted to have the Deputy Mayor of London, Rajesh Agrawal open the session hosted with the support of the Mayor of London at City Hall. The Mayor is committed to challenging gender inequality, prioritising closing the gender pay gap and supporting women to break the glass ceiling.

Queen of startups & serial investor - Bindi Karia
3xNED & CEO of IronGroup - Anne de Kerckhove

Multi NED Holder & CEO of Featurespace - Martina King.
Exclusive Executive Workshop with Nikki Watkins: Executive Presence. We’ve all heard of it and we’re told we need it, but what exactly is it and how do we know if we’ve got “it” or not?
It is an elusive phrase used more frequently to give developmental feedback to women than men: “You’re too quiet, you need to speak up, you need to develop more Executive Presence.” Sound familiar? In a world where corporate leaders are no longer confined to the white male stereotype of the past, there is a need for us to be aware of how we can develop Authentic Executive Presence in order to be taken seriously, and also to educate those around us that the outdated perceptions of what “it” is, no longer belong in business.
Wrap Up Party
Following our Executive Workshop we invite you to stay for our wrap up party, raising a glass of festive cheer to celebrate 2016 and commit to actions for 2017
This event is for all our advocates, male and female! Please bring a colleague or friend – reminding them to apply to join us on line first in order that we can welcome them into the fold.
