Come and join us for our last event for 2016 with an evening of insightful, informative and inspiring conversation with influential women and men who have managed to rise up quickly in their careers to Senior positions within FTSE 100 businesses, media and the public sector.
We want you to end 2016 on a high and be ready to win for 2017! The end of the year is always a great way to reflect on our lives, business and careers. What went well? What didn't? What lessons have we learned? What changes do we want to make? How can we do better for ourselves? How can we step up in our life and career in 2017? What do we want to do next?
We hope to help you answer these questions and more at our last event of the year.
We have a kick-ass panel of men and women who have managed to succeed and get promotions in typically male-dominated sectors such as TV/Entertainment, Telecommunications and the public sector.
This event will focus on how we can raise our game in 2017 and how to put together a strategic plan in place for success and progress in our careers and lives.
Our panel have defied the odds to break boundaries in their careers and rise up to get promotions and pay rises and recognition in multiple sectors.
This evening is perfect for anyone who wants to meet like-minded and supportive people, get motivated and encouragement for your career and life and for anyone who wants to get step up in their life.
Our wonderful panel are:
