The London Speaker Bureau has been running a series of webinars over the past months. These episodes are focused on sharing advice, support, and insights to businesses on how to navigate these troubling and uncertain times.
As International Women’s Day approaches, we invited Dame Carolyn Fairbairn, former Director-General of the CBI (Confederation of British Industry) to share her point of view on the future role and opportunities women have in the business world today. This insightful discussion also covers topics such as Inclusion in the workplace, digital transformation and International Trade.
Our webinar was hosted by former BBC news anchor, specialist conference moderator, interviewer & author, Roy Sheppard
As the first female Director-General of the CBI (2015 – 2020), Carolyn Fairbairn has incredible appreciation for the role of women in global business. With her outstanding academic achievements including a BA in Economics from Cambridge University, an MA in International Relations from the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA with distinction from INSEAD, she shares with us a wealth of knowledge and her own personal experiences from the boardroom. As a partner in McKinsey’s media practice and Director of Strategy at the BBC, she speaks to us about the role of leadership and how we can develop that to adapt to our current climate, whether that be gender, diversity or inclusion. International Women’s Day is something she cares about deeply and helps us to see how we can pave the way for women today, as she has done.
