Women in Leadership: Forget the Apologies and Learn to Lead with Confidence


Friday 29th October 2021

Women have a lower threshold of what they consider to be apology worthy. However, with every unnecessary apology you give, you chip away at your confidence. Thankfully, sociologist, author and TEDx speaker, Professor Maja is on a mission to turn the apologetic communication styles of women into confidence building lingo.

Maja draws on years’ worth of data collected with thousands of women around the world to inform her research and build her concepts and strategies. This seminar will help you to forget the apologies, claim your credibility, and learn to lead with confidence.
