The Global Leader
Organisations now recruit the best talent they can afford, and they source that talent from wherever in the world it happens to reside. Those who have global leadership skills and international experience will have a head start.
In their book Women with Attitude  Professor Susan Vinnicombe OBE and John Banks profiled 19 winners of the Veuve Cliquot Businesswoman of the year; commented on what they believed made these women stand out from the crowd and identified 10 Key Factors for Career Success
Feedback from Finalists, Winners and Applicants alike, shows that the Future Leaders Awards enhance visibility and confidence giving them the courage to take risks and voice their career ambitions. Many have been fortunate to have excellent mentors (and sponsors) and have been able to identify role models (both male and female) they wish to emulate.
Finalists and Winners report that being part of the Future Leaders Award acts as a springboard for career acceleration and opens up opportunities to take on additional challenges.
Many of our Finalists and Winners have already had international experience and our professional development prize (a place on the ICAEW’s Women’s Leadership programme) for the Winner helps her to develop her management style enabling her to better compete in the male dominated work place.
Guests, many of whom will be at the early stages of their careers will benefit from the experiences of our Expert Panellists, each of whom will share their experience, knowledge and expertise with the audience on topics that are key to developing Global Leadership Skills.
Each of our Panellists will present for 4 minutes after which there will be ample time for Q&As from the floor.
