International Simmons Leadership Conference 2019

  • 10 November 2019

Congratulations to all at the Simmons International Leadership Conference for a wonderful two days in Dublin on 5,6 November 2019. This was the fourth international conference for SimmonsLEADS and its second year in Dublin. This year’s conference theme, Designing Success, focused on the need for women leaders to constantly reinvent themselves and redefine what it means to succeed.

One of the key elements of the SimmonsLEADS mission is to support and develop women leaders to make a positive contribution within their organisations, their communities and the world. This it certainly did here in Dublin.

It was a packed schedule and we enjoyed the amazing speakers and panels. Our Twitter feed was busy capturing the many ideas and insights from the speakers. Jane Goodall, her story and her commitment to action was the highlight among many. Read about Jane here.

WITS was delighted to be invited to partner with the conference. We spread the word about the conference through our website and newsletter, hosted a WITS stand at the exhibition and shared our 2019 WITS brochure with the conference participants. At the stand we met so many interesting women leaders from Ireland and the world; it was good to share WITS’s mission and vision with them. It was a pleasure to meet the Professional Women’s Network (PWN) Dublin again this year.

Thanks to Tracie Charland, Director of Corporate Relations and Business Development and all her team, especially Georgette Arato and Renata Breytman Kersus for a great conference. It was a pleasure to partner you on the conference.

The Simmons Leadership Conference motivates, educates, and empowers women leaders at every stage of their careers!
