Women's Seminar: Influence and Resilience

This seminar focuses on helping women become more influential and on building confidence and resilience to support them in their careers and lives.

To communicate with influence it is vital to engage both hearts and minds. This seminar provides a practical tool to help you understand others and so be better able to influence them. If people feel understood, they are more open to influence. The tool helps us understand and appreciate difference, without compromising who we are.
The use of energy, and conserving energy, is a theme of this seminar. That is the root of resilience. As women we may have many things draining our energy and affecting our resilience. During this seminar we explore how to retain resilience, to feel energised and optimistic, as we manage all the elements of our lives and work.

A great experience and learning opportunity”  Hannelie Gilmour, Head of Portfolio Delivery, Standard Life plc

This seminar is designed and delivered by women, for women. The intention is to equip women leaders with resources to help them lead in challenging times. This seminar works as a stand-alone event and is also one of a series of four linked women’s seminars which complement and build upon each other. Through participating in these intensive events, women leaders will gain deeper insights into their strengths and talents and enhance the impact they have at work.

This seminar explores how you can become more influential. It also creates space for you to reflect on yourself and your energy. We will explore how to focus on what is important, letting go of things that no longer work for you and allocating more time to areas that give you energy rather than drain it. The aim is to build confidence and resilience to help you survive and thrive – at work and beyond.

Our expert facilitators Hilary Danelian & Ruth Morris bring a depth of understanding of leadership development combined with a passion for helping women release their potential and a practical common sense approach.

Really great!  Ruth and Hilary offer an opportunity to take yourself out of your normal day and approach issues with fresh eyes”  Elizabeth Anastasi, Economic Advisor, Department of Business, Innovation and Skills
