What does it take to lead? How do you recruit a great team that can support you as you power your business forward?
The workshop starts with an energising and interactive session that challenges the stereotypical image of a leader. This session is facilitated by Anne Boisier-Fouché from Shine For Women and will explore how you can influence others and create impact. Be prepared to get on your feet! The session will leave you with some key takeouts which you can use within work and life. Shine For Women partners with major organisations all over the world making the corporate world a more human place.
To shine as a leader, you need a good team and we have an international employment law expert for you. The session will be followed with a talk by Kim Wedral-Rooke, Partner at Taylor Vinters, on people strategy considerations to support scaling up your business. Kim will discuss topics such as a forward-looking recruitment approach, identifying the best skills for your business, as well as building and retaining an efficient team in a fast growth environment. The talk also presents practical insight on other key factors such as role model behaviour and how to embed transformative diversity and inclusion.
Rakhi Rajani will then follow with a talk on innovative ways for building and leading teams. During her career, Rakhi had to interview thousands of candidates to grow teams from scratch. She looked beyond the CV and her far-from-ordinary interview questions took candidates by surprise and disrupted classic recruitment styles. Rakhi believes that we often have a fixed view of what makes a great leader, but solving today’s problems requires different types of teams and new interpretations of leadership. Her talk will explain how.
