In this interactive, engaging session ‘Connected, Confident and Compelling’ we’ll navigate what it really takes to be confident, stand out, and be your best. From cultivating a network that’s not only wide but also deep and mutually beneficial through to articulating your unique value and engaging with clients and colleagues in a way that ensures you're not just heard—you're remembered. This fun, useful and thought-provoking session will give you lots of practical tips and techniques to help build your impact and influence.
