Thought provoking speakers and a series of superb historical venues were the highlights of the ‘Gathering’ of the IWF UK and IWF Ireland members in Dublin last week (7th - 9th June). The main theme was “Strengthening Connections in a Disrupted World’ and a wide topical and cultural agenda was packed into a day and a half.
In this month's Leadership Story, we feature Marty Wikstrom, a top brand and retail executive with over 30 years’ experience. She was the first woman to lead Harrods and her current board roles include Fortnum & Mason, Cath Kidston and Farrow & Ball. Marty writes about managing family life and how listening leads to more considered decisions.
'Evolution and Revolution' was the topical theme of the 2018 IWF Cornerstone Conference in Melbourne which explored global issues – human origins, frontiers in genetics, the evolution of work, shifting geopolitics, and changing oceans – in a local context.
