The Alumni network has really been an added and unexpected bonus of the Awards.
Alumni Connect - Accelerating the careers of female talent (3 December 2020)
Today’s organisations aspire to be more inclusive and are committed to supporting more women to move into leadership roles. For these commitments to be achieved we need more than the traditional approach to leadership development.
Our alumni speaker, Sue Gammons was Coaching Director and Executive Coach at healthcare company GSK. Sue led the design and delivery of award-winning coaching and leadership development programmes for women and ethnically diverse leaders worldwide.
This session will explore how a combination of 1:1 and group coaching, sponsorship and inclusion dialogues has been successful in addressing gender balance and led GSK to receive a Princess Royal Training Award in 2018.

Leaders of tomorrow competition: 4 February 2020
IBM Early Professional Leaders are hosting a competition exclusively for apprentices from Princess Royal Training Awards organisations.
Your apprentices are invited to join a creative, fun workshop in central London during National Apprenticeship Week 2020. They will team up with other apprentices and use design thinking to find the best idea around developing themselves as leaders. Winners will get a £50 prize.
This is a fantastic opportunity for your apprentices to meet and work with their peers in other industries, to clock up off the job learning hours, and to get involved during one of the most important weeks for apprenticeships in the UK.
Apprentices will also earn an IBM digital badge to show their design thinking skills, and have the chance to network over drinks and canapes.
