Here's what our delegates say:

Through the Women in Leadership Programme, I’ve learned several tips on how to insert myself even more in conversations and meetings with other Leaders and how to ensure I get my point across while also supporting and engaging others to speak up. It also helped me gain more confidence in my own leadership style as well as helping me define my own leadership style more.

For me, the Women in Leadership Programme was not only a professional but personal development journey. It helped me identify conscious and unconscious habits be that in the workplace or in my personal life that was holding me back from being a better leader. I feel more confident in my ability to lead from the front and have developed a network who provides support and encouragement to each other.

Through the programme, I found comfort and confidence after to speaking with others, as it highlighted that my worries about my next career move were shared by many in the room. However, this did not stop them in progressing, and gave me the reassurance I can do the same.
