International Women’s day is the day when people around the work celebrate the success of women. 

We are taking this opportunity to celebrate a number of women managers who will be sharing their career highlights, lessons learned and any management and leadership tips they have for others who wish to emulate their success or encourage other women to do so. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask them questions after they have each spoken, in the form of a panel debate.

This event is sure to be interesting, enlightening and inspirational to all managers (male and female).
