What: Executive Program for Women Leaders
Where: Stanford Graduate School of Business

“The program was extremely well-rounded. It covered various aspects to leadership, such as communications, influence, power, alliance-building, negotiation, decision-making and social networks. There were common threads across these different topics, which meant that the overall program was very cohesive. The program was also quite unique in factoring in the issue of gender to the discussion of various topics, recognising particular challenges that may be faced by professional women leaders in the workplace.

Spending time in San Francisco after the course was a real bonus. The temperature did instantly drop about 10 degrees in the short hop between Stanford and the city, but no better excuse for hitting the shops! The city is charming – from its iconic bridge and bay, to traditional pastel-coloured Victorian homes and cable cars, and the historic Alcatraz Island. I loved it.”
