8:00 am - 9:00 am Breakfast Workshop: Women in OPEX: Female Leadership in OPEX & Business Transformation

According to the Workplace Trends Millennial leadership Survey, 91% of millennials aspire to be a leader and out of that, 52% were women. When asked about the type of leader they aspire to be, 63% chose “transformational”, which means they seek to challenge and inspire their followers with a sense of purpose and excitement.
 
This interactive breakfast workshop gives you the opportunity to connect and forge meaningful relationships with female leaders in the OPEX & Business Transformation space. Diversity in any organization is no longer a nice to have with numerous studies now highlighting that companies with diverse leadership teams are more profitable – up to 5% more profitable in fact. This workshop is a forum to create an informal network with your peers, understand how other companies are practically going about diversifying their workforce and take home practical skills to help your own career.
 
  • Develop yours and your employees personal brand and leadership skills to drive a company through a transformation and influence the bottom line
  • Create a recruitment strategy that encourages diversity, builds technological capabilities and promotes leadership qualities
  • Why the role of digital is important and how to increase the number of women with technology skill sets
