We are delighted to welcome Alice Lyons as a guest speaker as part of our Personal Excellence Programme of events on Leadership. This session will explore a new style of leadership which can create stronger teams, workplaces and communities in the wake of Covid. It involves a radical rethink of the ways we communicate, connect with, and empower our people. When leaders bring more of their authentic selves to work, they create an exceptional wellbeing culture in which everyone can thrive.

This energising workshop will create a space for attendees to practice the art of self-expression.

Expect storytelling, personal reflection time, group conversations and some downright liberation!
