  • Keynote address: An Officer, not a gentleman – leading from the front line

    As the second woman to fly a Tornado GR4 on the front line, Mandy Hickson pioneered the movement of women in the Royal Air Force. Throughout 45 missions and 3 duty tours, her remarkable career is a testament of her strong mental resilience, bravery, and powerful attitude. Drawing on her experience of calculated risk-taking, decision-making under pressure, and the critical role of humans, Mandy’s vivid leadership story demonstrates the importance of leading, quite literally, from the front to get the best from yourself and your team.

  • Achieving growth and exposure in a hybrid working environment

    This session tackles the paradox of flexibility and exposure in this new working environment. As organizations are returning to the office in some capacity, many are also offering more work from home options. With that flexibility, some may be wondering if there are trade-offs to choosing more flexible work opportunities. 

    • How are those that take advantage of working from home missing out on key exposure opportunities that could impact their career? 
    • How can meaningful exposure to leaders, team management and growth opportunities still be available to those who choose a more flexible work schedule? 
    • What types of solutions allow for equitable opportunities for all types of work styles?

    • Building a team culture that considers different stakeholders – both internally and externally
