Jo Haigh will be sharing her experiences of the board room next week at Coutts and Co on the Strand.
Men and women are still experiencing a very different journey to the board room as executives but more so as a non-executive.
On the back of ever increasing pressure and with various government call for quotas to ensure more women have a recognised seat in the board rooms of uk plc, this highly participative session will allow you to share the very different experiences of two seasoned executives and non-executives. Leading business woman Jo Haigh of fds group will allow the audience an insight into how she has broken the mould and held dozens of exec and non exec roles in the very male M and A world supported by David Adams Vistage chair and ex stockbroker. They will share their different experience on the success ladder to understand what has worked what hasn't and how they can learn from each other.
Forget Mars and Venus, we suggest being successful in the board requires men and women to at least become the same species.
