PLEASE NOTE THAT EVENT IS A WORKING GROUP FOR ADVOCATES AND THEIR GUESTS. NOT AN ADVOCATE? JOIN HERE.
TLA WiT is passionate about taking the action needed to raise the profile of Women in Tech – our working group and all our initiatives are created around this principle.
If you aspire to move up the ladder, to be on a Board or look at a Non-Exec position and are asking the question what tools and skills do I need now and in the future to get there, then this working session is for you.
We will focus on Executive Presence and give you insight into what it will take to achieve your progression and some ideas on how to prepare yourself. Female leaders who have already made the journey will also share their pearls of wisdom.
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can develop Authentic Executive Presence in order to be taken seriously, and also to educate those around us that the outdated perceptions of what “it” is, no longer belong in business.
This event is for all our advocates, male and female, as most of you will be working with aspiring women whether this is a challenge for you or not, and the more knowledge you have on this subject the better you can advocate!
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.
P.S We are please to be holding this Working Group session in London's Living Room on the 9th floor at City Hall!
