On June 17th a group of a few men and about 40 women gathered in Solihull for the annual WIL conference headlined “Competency and Talent Development” – “approaches to future talent development, improving team performance and overcoming barriers”.
It was a great day with presentations from: Helen Sandall, Hotel Chocolat; Antoniya Dimitrova & Rachel Lander, UKWA/Westminster Business School; Amy Isherwood, Eddie Stobart; Sandra O’Toole, BIS Henderson; Wendy Manning, Coca-Cola Enterprises
The day finished with a panel discussion on mentoring chaired by Penny Sayce. Together with Danielle Drozd and Kirsten Tisdale I was privileged to be a panellist.
A marvellous day all around and I took away a lot of inspiration from great role models and met a bunch of lovely people too.
