Wo+Men's Leadership Conference 2023

Sat 25 November 2023

Cambridge Judge Business School

This year, we were delighted to welcome as keynotes:

- Alumnae Marie von Bethmann, Associate Partner at McKinsey & Company and Rina Einy, Founder and Owner, Culthread London In conversation with Professor Dame Sandra Dawson, KPMG Professor Emerita of Management Studies, Cambridge Judge Business School
- Anne Robinson, Chief Strategy Officer, Kinaxis In conversation with Professor Feryal Erhun, Professor of Operations and Technology Management and Academic Director, Wo+Men’s Leadership Centre, Cambridge Judge Business School

At this year’s conference we are delighted to offer a first - an interactive masterclass on communicating at your best. Whether selling an idea, building a team or driving change, leaders need stories, stories that ‘stick’.

Barbara Dryhurst, from AGL Communication, London’s leading communication experts, will help us understand how to craft stories that we truly own; that stay in the memory of those that hear them; that others will repeat; and that win hearts and minds, and inspire action.

For over a decade AGL have helped some of the world’s most influential leaders be better communicators, which, in turn, makes them better leaders. They work with executives, managers, future leaders, policymakers, entrepreneurs, celebrities and individuals. Effective communication makes the difference between a competent leader and a great leader. Barbara will help us find our voice.

We’ll also have two panel discussions on:

- Negotiation strategies. Moderated by Patrizia Vecchi, Assistant Professor in Organisational Behaviour, Cambridge Judge Business School.

- Inclusion in Investment Management, where we’ll discuss the recommendations from our newly published research report in collaboration with Invesco and the Investment Association. Moderated by Jenny Chu, Associate Professor in Accounting, Academic Director of the Wo+Men’s Leadership Centre, Cambridge Judge Business School.

Don't miss this opportunity to shape your success and invest in your future.

We look forward to welcoming you to Cambridge Judge.
