2:00 PM Welcome!2:10 PM ‘LeaderX’ — Lucy Barkas The 2020s will see a fundamental shift in leadership as the Boomers retire, a new type of leader will take their seat at the table. LeaderX is results-focused but understands that people, teams and culture are what will make the difference between surviving and thriving. Lucy will share her ‘5 My’s’ leadership model and highlight how women, in particular, will be the biggest influences of strategic change. She will highlight where nature and nurture play a role in your leadership and how you can totally dial up your strengths and lead with confidence. She will challenge you to step up, take control and be a purpose-driven leader.2:40 PM Break with Dougnotts!3:10 PM ‘How Nostradamus led me to find my #PerfectJob’ — Pei Mun Lim A tale of how my career journey started with some dire predictions about the future from a long-dead French Astrologer from the 1500’s. I had dreams of piloting the next USS Enterprise to “explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no man has gone before!” because you know, Nostradamus foresaw the end of the world (maybe). Obviously, that didn’t happen. I talk about what happens instead.3:40 PM ‘ Above and beyond… your day job!’ — Yvette Kempson Yvette has held numerous positions in a wide range of industries including care work, logistics, administration, Taxidermy, and being one of the only women on the British lion free-range egg welfare advisory boards. Mainly working in the heavily male-dominated agricultural industry for over 30 years, she’s had to prove herself time and again, sometimes ‘literally’ grabbing the bull by the horns to go above and beyond to take the initiative, implement change and provide system and process improvements. With each opportunity, she’s broadened her skills set, given herself an insight into over six industries, all while dealing with a wide range of people from all warps of life. In her spare time, she continues to support her husband in running their architectural sustainability business from home and volunteers her British sign language skills to promote inclusion for deaf children to have access to sports and events. She’s given over 100 talks on various specialist subjects in various industries, however, this will be the first time she speaks about herself and her career journey. In this talk, you’ll learn how going the extra mile can help you and your business achieve more.4:10 PMFood, drinks and chats!
