Up the ladder in a skirt! – Workshop

Maggie Georgopoulos

Join us at the whole Woman Conference to enjoy 8 great workshops from leading women in business.

Maggie Georgopoulos will share her own experiences – the good, the bad and the ugly – as well as those of other leading female business executives and entrepreneurs, in a down-to-earth and insightful style that is easy to relate to regardless of your current occupation.

This is not simply a workshop about how women can advance up the career ladder while enduring negative messages, it is also about being a good and effective people manager. Understanding a team’s needs and wants, being respectful and open, and giving team and staff members a platform to discuss issues – whether personal or professional – are skills that both male and female managers need to learn if they want to lead happy and productive teams.

In Up the Ladder in a Skirt, Maggie does not simply discuss aspects of career progression. She also talks about juggling personal lives with careers. Maggie discusses mental health issues, laying bare her own mental illness, and explaining how important it is not only to look after your own mental health but also that of those you lead. During this workshop you will get an introduction to the first 5 basic rungs of the leadership ladder which can be applied, revisited and grown no matter what point you are in your leadership career and whether you are working in an organisation, about to move into employment or are starting out in your own business, or work in and on your own business.

Key take-aways:

  1. How to gain leadership success as a woman in a ‘man’s world’
  2. Discover how to conquer the voices telling you you’re ‘not good enough’
  3. Learn to use a true sense of community to climb the ladder
