NMBS lines up Women in Leadership event

The National Merchant Buying Society (NMBS) is running a Women in Leadership at London Stock Exchange on 13 September.

Bringing together women from across the industry, from merchants and suppliers, the Conference will be hosted by TV presenter and technology journalist Georgie Barrat, the presenter of Channel 5’s The Gadget Show.

The event will kick off with a talk from a prominent sports woman, followed by a presentation from a business speaker, with delegates then able to ask questions in a short Q&A session.

Those will be followed by two ‘lean in’ (rather than ‘break out’) sessions, with a focus on the importance of networking. A networking lunch will take place before a speech by Mandy Hickson, a female Tornado fighter pilot. The event is expected to close around 2:30pm.

More details of the conference will be revealed in the coming months.
