Global female empowerment group, Lean In, will host Susie Ashfield, renowned coach and voice-over artist for the BBC, Sky, ITV and Sony, for “Talk Like TED” on 23 October, sponsored by Duff & Phelps. Susie will focus on how to engage, influence and have an impact on an audience. ‘TED Talks’, upon which the presentation is based, is a popular online platform which shows influential and encapsulating videos from expert speakers on education, business, science, tech and creativity.
This event is open to both men and women and has attracted interest across the board. Event sponsor Duff & Phelps are promoting through their Network of Women (NOW), whereby women are encouraged and supported in their career journeys. NOW was launched in 2012 to attract, develop and retain women at all levels of the firm.
Pippa Davidson, the founder of the Lean In Jersey circle, said: “Since founding the local Lean In circle, we have been very keen to highlight the fact that men and women are both instrumental in each other’s career aspirations. We are pleased with the level of interest in the ‘Talk Like TED’ session and look forward to an inspirational event and a good level of constructive networking and learning.”
Malin Nilsson, Managing Director of the Duff & Phelps Jersey office, also commented: “We are delighted to sponsor this Lean In event which underlines our firm’s commitment to diversity. The number of registrants clearly underscores Jersey’s interest in this topic and also the financial community’s understanding of what Lean In is trying to achieve.”
Lean In’s “Talk Like TED” event, sponsored by Duff & Phelps, will take place on 23 October at 5.30 pm at the Royal Yacht hotel.
