As part of our 4-week long Women’s History Month & International Women’s Day Event Series, we are hosting an open Q&A session with Emma Cannon, Head of People at Duco Technology, and Beth Nevins, People Director at CloudNC. 

Emma and Beth will be taking open questions and discussing some of the best ways to self-position with confidence, including dealing with the psychological ‘trip-ups’ which can hold us back, and negotiating effectively with employers. Emma’s specialist area is coaching for confidence, and Beth’s specialist area is recruitment and talent management.
