Nourishing our next-generation leaders
This year’s Women of the Future Summit is dedicated to giving next-generation female leaders a boost of energy and support, recognising that we have all been digging deep for a long time through the Covid-19 pandemic and its knock-on consequences. Our aim is to be deeply practical, sharing insight, inspiration and connections that can accelerate delegates’ leadership journey and support their personal wellbeing.
In times of stress and complexity, it can be very natural for our perspective to narrow. Yet having the ability to take a step back is a key element for great leadership. Session one is aimed at helping us re-broaden the way in which we think and in turn, giving us a greater chance of coming up with a fresh and creative angle that adds value.
