We are excited to announce that Lisa Unwin, one of the authors behind the recently published book “She’s Back - Your Guide to Returning to Work”, will be with us for an evening session as part of our Personal Excellence Programme. Lisa will be joining us to talk about her ground breaking book and why the messages it contains are relevant for anyone who wants to build a successful and sustainable long-term career.

In an age of constant and rapid technological change, the “100 year life”, millennials with different expectations, and shifting societal norms, we need to have an eye on the long term whilst at the same time being agile and responsive. Additionally, women’s careers twist and turn. We often step back or step away for so many reasons. And returning can be tough.

Whether you are coming back after a break, looking to re-ignite a stale career or seeking a new challenge, this session will offer essential guidance to help you succeed.

You’ll learn the truth about how the recruitment market really works; how to craft a narrative that explains your value; mobilise a network to support your ambitions and find work that will work for you.

Arianna Huffington describes it as a “must have guide to get more women back into the workplace. Sarah Wood and Matthew d’Ancona both pretty much said “Read it or be left behind”.

No wonder it’s just been shortlisted as one of the Chartered Management Institute management books of the year.

Copies of the book will be available to purchase on the night for a discounted price of £7 (cover price £9.99). You can guarantee your copy by pre-ordering via email to

Getting there: please enter via North St Andrew Lane entrance at the rear of the building.
