For some, the social interaction of networking is an opportunity to thrive, but for others it is akin to an annual dental check-up.

It is a necessity in your success for more business opportunities, broader knowledge, interdisciplinary collaborations, increased capacity for innovation, improved employment perspectives and essential for career development and progression.

Picture if you will, a day segmented neatly into a productive and effective eight hour work day, followed by leaving on time for your one-to-two hour fulfilling hobby, or perhaps you’ll meet friends or family after work giving them your undivided attention, maybe you’ll be picking up the children from school and run them along to their fun and enhancing after-school activities. The day then smoothly eases into the evening of leisurely unwinding and prepping up for the next day, and your head gently hits your pillow at the end of the evening for an eight hour deep sleep, to start refreshed the next morning.
In a 24 hour switched-on planet, technology driven in our waking and non-waking hours, we will endeavour to get a lot more done with a lot less, striving for professional and personal efficiency. We live in a world where people around the world are connected online resulting in information overload and competing priorities. Boxing off time is a luxury a few of us might be able to afford. Research has shown that the 9 to 5 is fast disappearing, (YouGov, 2018), almost half of people either work flexibly, job share or work compressed hours, to allow them to juggle other commitments (The Conversation).

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.
Our journey to Antarctica
What better place to sharpen one’s leadership skills than amidst the harsh landscape of Antarctica. The frozen continent is filled with stories of leadership from the early 20th century explorers and their race to be the first to set foot on the South Pole. For 78 women in STEM from around the world, Antarctica was the backdrop for their own explorations into leadership as part of Homeward Bound Projects.
Come join CamAWiSE co-chair Cathy Sorbara and University of Cambridge PhD student Hannah Laeverenz Schlogelhofer, 2 of the women chosen for this leadership program, as they reflect on their experience, why it is so critical to empower more women leaders, what they learned about themselves and working with others on board, and how it will influence their future careers and hopefully inspire others in the audience. And of course, learn more about the continent they have come to love and advocate for.
