We have recently held a number of Events which you might’ve engaged with, or if not, we would like to highlight some new events in the pipeline which you may be interested in.

Our most recent event was our STRIDE EVENT on Building Emotional and Mental Resilience which was held on the 27th June. We had a wonderful turnout and our guest speakers – Jennie Johnson MBE – CEO of Kids Allowed, Karen Campbell – Tax partner at Grant Thornton UK LLP and Joanne Conway – Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Strategy Lead at EY Uk; all shared their amazing stories of success – along with the difficulties they faced, and face still, in their leadership roles. Their honesty and insights shared were helpful, insightful and provided great guidance.

Additionally, we have hosted our THINK TANKS:
– Health and Public Sector Think Tank
– Talent Management Think Tank and;
– Higher Education Think Tank.
