"Repeated Application of Choice – Cue Change" with Jane Buxton

An interactive session on personal change.

Learning to create the habits we want is tricky, especially when it involves unpicking or replacing an old habit: whether considering a great question rather than telling someone what to do or rising at 6am to go to the gym.

Here’s a look at some simple tools to help – but be warned – practice really does make perfect.

"Championing your leadership brand" with Dr Shaheen Janjuha-Jivraj and Lady Kitty Chisholm, Boardwalk Leadership

Explore why a champion is crucial to your career success and what is takes to attract a strong Champion to support your leadership journey.

Interactive session on

  • Identifying how championing can be a powerful tool to promote women into leadership roles
  • How women can build their brands to attract Champions
  • Sharing stories of successful women who have reached the top of their careers

Drawn from Boardwalk Leadership’s work with high potential women in multi-national corporations and research from over 60 countries.
