Women to Watch – December 2010

Barbican Centre – London

3rd December 2010 2 – 6pm

Hear from Ruth McKenzie, CEO of the Cultural Olympiad and gain insight form her personal leadership journey including roles as general director of the Manchester International Festival (MIF) and artistic director of the Chichester Festival Theatre.

Identifying and using your personal brand

We seem to be hard wired to notice and assess the behaviours of those around us in an instant; we broadcast messages about ourselves all the time, without even trying. As leaders, we take on a responsibility to provide clear messages and to act as role models – and it is the sum of these behaviours that add up to our reputation, or in effect, our personal brand.

Whilst we might recoil at this idea of having a brand, or indeed being our own brand, we all have one whether we like it or not and this workshop, led by Mark Wright of People Create Ltd, sets out to explore how and when we can positively align the cues we send out, whilst staying true to our leadership values and purpose.

The event will include opportunities for networking (over tea and cakes) as well as the chance for all participants to:

Pitch, Provoke or Share …  PPS!

An open mic session where you have 3 minutes to:

  • Pitch an idea or project to your W2W peers. If you’re looking for potential partners or feedback this is an opportunity to utilise the network
  • Provoke discussion about an issue that you, your organisation or the sector is facing and stimulate conversations within the network
  • Share success stories around leadership achievements (i.e. successful projects, a new position or overcoming a challenge)

It’s your space…  there will be a limited number of slots available so either let us know in advance (email us here) or sign up at registration on the day.
