Have you been told you need to promote yourself more at work, but the sheer thought of getting more visible is literally crippling you with stress and anxiety? You’re not alone. That’s exactly how I felt, too. When I was told by my manager “you think you’re doing a great job, but you’re not being perceived as such. It’s your responsibility to change that!” It was the toughest message ever. But it was also the catalyst that changed how I showed up at work, and a few months later I finally got that promotion I’d been longing for. In this workshop, you’ll discover the exact tools and strategies that helped me, so that you can succeed, too.

Key takeaways include:-

  • Experience a simple but effective tool to instantly boost your confidence
  • Discover the underlying subconscious blocks that are stopping you from standing out at work
  • Ways to promote yourself and simultaneously help your company improve results

A natural and unseen aspect of adapting to change and disruption is transition fatigue when cognitive functioning can be impaired. This is a time when regrettable decisions are made, productivity is low, and relationships are strained. When life pivots in a new direction the stakes are high, choices and commitments impact life for the long-term. Big life events, retirement, divorce, inheritance, business disruption or sale, as well as a global pandemic, dissolve the norms of life and require us to adapt. The objective of this session is to introduce the concept, explain how decision making and planning can be compromised and provide two take away tools to assist in the universal need for reclaiming our capacity to make our best decisions, tolerate ambiguity and uncertainty, and move forward in the process of shaping the life we want to live.


Key takeaways include:-

  • Identifying the four signs of Transitions Fatigue, in clients and ourselves
  • Direct benefits of enhancing capacity for comprehension and long-term thinking
  • Transitions Fatigue self-assessment short form
  • Decision Free Zone® protocol for prioritizing actions and decisions by timeline, urgency

How can you lead when the whole world is emotionally exhausted? How can Emotional Intelligence build resilience? And what is the link between Emotional Intelligence and Cultural Intelligence? When you understand the impact of these soft skills and how to acquire them, your personal leadership style becomes your leadership signature. When emotional intelligence is part and parcel of how you show up, stand up and speak up as a leader, the outcome is Executive Presence. This workshop will address steps you can take to increase your understanding of the interplay between Self-awareness and Other-awareness, Emotional Intelligence and Cultural Intelligence and how together they impact Executive Presence.

Key takeaways include:-

  • The foundations of Emotional Intelligence and how to develop it
  • How Cultural Intelligence is inherently reliant on Emotional Intelligence which is the way you show up, stand up and speak up influence how you lead across cultures.
  • How leading with emotional courage builds trust and leads to psychological safety

In 2019, pandemic risk was not even classed as a top 50 risk by global firms surveyed by Aon; but in the last year COVID-19 caused unprecedented disruption to businesses globally. In this session, Julie Page will share insights on the insurance industry’s response to coronavirus and on the changing face of risk and insurance in a post-pandemic world. This will include how traditional risks have been replaced by less tangible risks that require innovative solutions, the steps the industry is taking to address these risks and the emerging perception gap about what the industry can – and can’t – do.

Key takeaways include:-

  • How the insurance industry is responding to the evolving needs of clients
  • Why risk preparedness matters now more than ever
  • How diversity underpins the evolution of the industry

Throughout sales and marketing departments globally it's been said that women are better with money and making financial decisions and as such we become the target of countless advertising. So why are 54% of millenial women deferring financial control to the men? Women need to be educated into their financial planning and competency. Although women are more likely to be savers, we are less likely to investing and growing our assets. Educating women on their access to finance is the next step in achieving financial equality and freedom.

Key takeaways include:-

  • Educating women on their financial choices and how to build their financial freedom
  • How exposing young women to different aspects of finance will also expose them to different career opportunities

Mobile-first banks and cryptocurrencies are becoming the driving force behind the move towards a completely cashless society, but historically, regulators and policymakers are slow to respond to new innovation. As the new regulation moves to enforce Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter-Terrorist Financing (CTF) initiatives how can financial services prevent criminal activity while protecting their customers privacy?

Key takeaways include:-

As a woman in finance, you're incredibly likely to be the only one in the room, team, function and even, organisation. You'll be presumed to have particular traits and as such, you will be treated differently. But there is a larger community out there of women who are experiencing the same thing you are and together, we can change how everyone sees the world of finance and how you can elevate yourself above your male counterparts who underestimate you. In the words of Michelle Obama, "when they go low, we go high."

Key takeaways include:-

  • How to deal with men who underestimate or undermine you in the workplace with real life examples
  • Learning from your failures and picking yourself back up again
  • Finding your community and building a network of women in finance for a more inclusive workplace

Investing seems complicated and risky and today’s market conditions add to the skepticism. But if you want to grow your money, achieve long-term goals and outrun inflation, investing is key. When you invest, you’re looking to achieve higher returns in exchange for taking on more risk. With interest rates at rock bottom, it’s especially important to consider investing to make your money work harder. Research suggests that men are more likely to invest than women. This gender investment gap has a direct impact on women’s wealth, pensions, and overall financial wellbeing, and it needs to change.

Key takeaways include:-

For many women in the financial services, their career will peak at middle management where they will either stagnate or stop altogether. Financial services is an overly traditional industry which has been built on male traits that the industry still very much thrives on. Those who do not showcase similar traits will feel like they're underperforming and risk leaving the industry.
