Technology and insurance recruiter Gravitas Recruitment Group will share how they chose attitude over skillsets to spot their future shining stars and what that meant for their organisation.
Session 2: Redefining listening and inspiring connection
Alumni and Author Mandy Preece shares her ongoing discovery to reconnecting with ourselves and others and restoring what it means to be heard in a time when we need it most and are returning back to work.

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.
