Themes: Guest speakers, Leadership

See the glass half full

It was billed as the Cambridge Chapter launch of ’85 Broads’, a global network of trailblazing, visionary women who aspire to use their talent and leadership savvy to affect change for all women globally. The speakers at the day-long conference offered advice on how to overcome adversity, how to make the recession an advantage, why it’s good not to fear failure and how to find the resources to keep digging deep. It clearly ‘inspired’, ‘connected’ and ‘transformed’ the many women who attended it.

As a recruiter for McKinsey at a European level, Lena Henry, offers positive advice to those concerned about entering the current job market. “You’re lucky. You’re challenged to think about what you really want,” she says.
