Where you can find me speaking about diversity and inclusion
BAME into Leadership
Wednesday 10 February 2021, Birmingham and Thursday 25 March 2021, London
I'm proud to be part of this year's inspiring roster of speakers from the public sector community, all coming together to enhance the capabilities and leadership opportunities for BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) colleagues across the Civil Service and wider public sector.
I will host a series of mini-workshops to unleash the 'quiet power' held within the talented, introvert leaders present at the two conferences.
This event facilitated by Dods Group Plc.

Internal Communications Conference
8 December 2020, Online
I was invited to give a keynote at the annual Internal Communications Conference, hosted by Dods Diversity and Inclusion. You can watch my session again on YouTube.
This year's theme was Rising to the Challenge of Unprecedented Times - Establishing an Agile, Authentic and Inclusive Approach. See the full programme on the Dods website.
Women in communications
2 September 2020, Online
This autumn, I co-delivered the closing keynote at the annual Women in Communications conference with the title: Leading a change in culture: where do we go from here?
The number of women at board director level and above remains stubbornly low. My talk will explore this and the importance of not losing momentum in recognising female leaders in communications.
Catch up on the event on the Dods Plc website.
D&I Leaders on demand: Giving voice to quiet leaders
23 July 2020, 11.15-11.55am (UK time)
I co-hosted a 40-minute interactive session alongside Quiet Leadership Coach Iain Wilkie, founder of the charity ‘50 Million Voices’ collaborating with leaders from 15 countries to transform the global workplace for people who stutter.
Together we explored:
How the virtual world is changing unconscious biases that have historically existed in our extrovert-orientated workplaces
The importance of redefining the extrovert-introvert dynamic if teams are to make better decisions in the workplace of the future
Ways for the natural skills and contributions of quiet leaders to shine in the post-pandemic workplace, for the benefit of extroverts and introverts.
