Diverse Thinking is the Key

19 January 2016 | Updated 01 January 1970

The call for diverse thinking in the workplace is a hot topic surrounding businesses which is being hosted by Voice At The Table in central London. Voice At The Table’s primary focus is to support and represent women at all stages of their career and provide them with the necessary tools to progress and deliver their special skills.

“The era of command and control leadership is largely in the past and we are now experiencing a collaborative stage,” explained Rina Goldenberg Lynch, Founder and MD, Voice At The Table. “However, the future demands purposeful management and leadership which is something that requires authenticity and a vision beyond the bottom line. This event will give senior female and male executives at corporate organisations the opportunity to learn about this huge shift and explain the ways in which they can gain a positive advantage.”

The agenda for the 25 January event, entitled Being Authentic: What’s the Big Deal? will include the topic of authenticity, what it means to be authentic, why it matters and how women can develop authentic approaches to work. The panel will also discuss how the topic fits into the early stages of a career and the associated risks and pressures.
The event which will feature speakers including TV star Kathryn Flett, takes place on Tuesday 25 January 2016 at the City law firm Addleshaw Goddard, Milton Gate, 60 Chiswell Street, London, EC1Y 4AG. The event starts at 18.00 and ends at 21.00.
