Making an impact

Become more confident when speaking publicly or networking and develop techniques to ensure your voice is heard.

Co-creating the Women Leaders Manifesto
Heather Moorhead, Director, Northern Ireland Confederation for Health and Social Care

In this highly creative interactive session, map out the key issues impacting on women in leadership and prioritise the actions that collectively will help us all shift the curve.

Be the change you want to see
Emily Miles and Jane Galloway, London Women’s Leadership Network
