Leadership Through Sport & Business is organising the second Women in Finance conference at Macquarie Group’s London Headquarters on 25th May 2017.
Carolyn Fairbairn, Director General of the CBI, is chairing our panel. Brenda Trenowden, Head of Financial Institutions Europe at ANZ Bank and Global Chair of the 30% Club, Claudia Harris, CEO of Careers and Enterprise Company, Rachel Short, Director of Why Women Work, and Jane Magill, MD and Chair of Balance for Macquarie Group are panel members.
Senior women from BDO, BKL, Capital One, Close Brothers, Deloitte, EY, Goldman Sachs, Hays, Kaplan, KPMG, Mazars, NEX, PwC, RBS, Santander, Social Business Trust, Sulla Investments, The Co-operative Bank, Thomson Reuters and Willis Towers Watson will be mentoring our young women throughout the event.
This year’s conference will focus on preparing LTSB young women for executive and P&L roles, highlighting opportunities and possible hurdles to overcome.
The young women in the audience will range from part qualified chartered accountants / tax / management accountants from our Intakes in 2012 and 2013 to young women just starting out as AAT Level 3 apprenticeships from our Intake in 2016.
Leadership Through Sport & Business is in it’s 5th year of transforming the lives of young people who lack social capital and need our help launch their careers in accounting and finance. Although we don’t just work with young women we are aware that many of our young women need extra support to believe in themselves, grow in confidence and aspire to senior roles. The Women in Finance event is designed to inspire and motivate them. It is also designed to deliver some practical learning and invaluable interaction with senior women.
Mazars, PwC and Hays Recruitment will be delivering interactive practical sessions covering commercial awareness, teamwork and networking, personal brand and promoting oneself in the workplace.
