The Women 1st Conference 2013 will include interactive workshops covering communication skills and networking, hosted by Smarter Networking, Reflexion Associates Ltd and The Impact Coach.
Heather White, CEO, Smarter Networking will host ‘Networking - what’s your value?’ This session will help delegates adopt a proactive and positive view to networking, challenge the mind set of what networking is supposed to do and how it really works, identifying and using its real value in career and business relationships.
‘Your leadership story,’ hosted by Jenny Garrett, director, Reflexion Associates Ltd. is designed to help delegates understand why personal leadership stories are critical to career and business success. Jenny will show delegates how to craft their story effortlessly and unlock its value.

As communicating effectively is now more important than ever, Susie will show delegates the simple secrets of powerful memorable and compelling presentations, how to increase personal charisma and the power of your personal brand and how to communicate and leverage it.
