About the workshop
The insurance industry has made significant progress in narrowing the gender gap. However, there is still a major imbalance in women occupying executive level positions. With the influx of financial conglomerate subsidiaries and smaller insurance companies, the insurance industry is in a state of increased competition. To stand out from the work, women working in this unique environment should develop vital leadership qualities for career advancement.
This hands-on, two-day interactive learning session has been designed with both current and emerging leaders in mind. It will equip you with a practical leadership plan that you can use to navigate a successful career and advance to senior levels.
You will also have front-row seats for an intimate 'Leadership Lunch', where a panel of senior leaders will join us to share their real-world leadership experiences - and a few war stories - from scaling the heights to surviving the hard yards in the Insurance and Fin Services sector!
Book now to secure your seat and take the next step in your career.
