Developing a female leadership pipeline is still a challenge for many organisations. The Rise Women in Leadership Report highlighted the low levels of women in senior leadership positions within the broadcast industry, with little change since 2000. This is something that needs to be challenged – and providing support to existing and future women leaders plays an integral part in facilitating change.

We know that women need different support to navigate the transition into leadership, and all too often training is only accessed when people are in leadership positions, which can be too late!

Delivered by leading women’s careers consultancy, Birdsoup, in this interactive and thought-provoking session, you will learn more about:

  • What leadership is, and how is it different from managing a team or project.
  • Different leadership styles.
  • The essential elements of leadership; identifying what you already have and what you need to build to become an effective leader.

Who should attend

This session is designed for:

  • Emerging women leaders or those taking on a new leadership role.
  • Women taking on more responsibility or leading a project for the first time.
  • New leaders dealing with challenges or simply needing a refresher on tips for leading.
