Have you ever wondered how people achieve more with less, with ease and what appears to be little effort? Whether you’re running a one wo(man) project, part of a team or CEO of a multinational – you can lead from anywhere within an organisation or in your personal life. This workshop will show you how you can achieve exactly that! Julie Hogbin will take you through the steps to create change and adopt tools which will show you how to bring leadership skills to the table.
Leadership is an attitude, not a title.
The Sun, our star, is responsible for life on Earth, giving light, heat, and energy.
The lifetime work of internationally renowned scientist Helen Mason focuses on understanding the Sun, in particular, the solar atmosphere – the crown of light seen during a total eclipse (corona).
Helen was awarded the “Women of Outstanding Achievement of 2010” in SET (Science, Engineering, and Technology). Her dedication to promoting SET on numerous platforms was recognised in her OBE (2014) for services to Higher Education and to Women in SET. Through her work, she teamed up with astronaut Tim Peake (International Space Station), creating activities for schools in the Space to Earth Challenge. Her online resource for teachers and students, Sun|trek is extensively used globally. She has taken her outreach work across India and South Africa.
Come spend a special evening with Helen Mason. Listen to her rich journey, the successes, the challenges and the critical support from others in her life and career.
A short AGM will follow.
“We each have a dream, we each have a passion, and I have enjoyed a wonderful life in the Sun,”
Helen Mason OBE
