Alumni November 2017

In conversation with...Jayne Jenkins, Thursday 16th November

Accelerate Your Inner Leadership Impact
Success in the business world can be daunting and even c-suite executives suffer from the “Imposter Syndrome” which means they have more vulnerable moments than you might think! With the rapid change, ambiguity and global diversity you face as an entrepreneur, it becomes even more important that you know how to lead and realize that great leadership “starts within.”  

Executive, Communication and Strengths Coach Jayne Jenkins (Chemistry, 1989) will bring practical, proven strategies during this one hour interactive learning webinar
