Networking Event 4 with Guest Speaker
Danielle Dobson

This month, join us for a session with Danielle Dobson and stand a chance to win a signed copy of her book “Breaking the Gender Code: How Women Can Use What They Already Have To Get What They Actually Want”.

You know that having women in leadership positions is an essential part of a diverse and inclusive culture, becoming an employer of choice and meeting business critical KPI’s and objectives.

But the truth is, if a person doesn’t believe in themselves, their value or that they are truly supported, they will not bring all of who they are, their potential and their unique contribution to the table.

Danielle Dobson uses her research-based Code Conversations™ framework to empower the women and men in your organisation to help you expose, decode and recode gender biases in the workplace.
