Over 100 inspiring women shared the insights learned from Sue Stockdale's trek across the Greenland icecap. Her perception and analysis of motivation, team roles and frustrations gave each and everyone there something to take away. We all gained insight into our own roles and how we can influence others to raise team performance. Sue Stockdale is an inspirational speaker whose business and adventure experience has helped hundreds of leaders and entrepreneurs step out of their comfort zone and achieve extraordinary results. From athlete and adventurer to entrepreneur and executive coach, Sue demonstrates how you can achieve anything if you believe it is possible.

Insights into career maangement and development were enhanced by a panel drawn from the different areas representing engineering, technology and architecture.

WES was also delighted to award the 2010 Karen Burt Award to Julie Templeton of Atkins Global who impressed the judges with her competence, passion and energy for engineering.

The IET kindly hosted and supported the event in their wonderful building in Savoy Place.

This was a partnership event with Women in Architecture and womenintechnology.co.uk
