Despite improved representation across the Retail and FMCG space, there is a significant imbalance between women and men in executive leadership roles. For women in retail and FMCG, it is critical they build skill sets to move into leadership, overcome challenges and bridge this gender divide. The requisite skills at this level may include negotiating, influencing stakeholders and managing change. It is vital that aspiring and emerging leaders establish a strong personal brand and master these skills in order to be successful in their careers.
Liquid Learning presents The 5th Annual Women in Retail and FMCG Leadership Summit 2017 which brings together aspiring, emerging, and accomplished female leaders in this unique environment. Delegates will be provided the opportunity to hear uplifting and inspiring testimonies from successful leaders in this space. This annual conference will be comprised of case studies, expert commentaries, and panel discussions that will divulge the critical skill sets required of female leaders. The learning is reinforced with optional full-day workshops that take a hands-on approach to developing the skills needed to excel.
