London Business School's Women in Business Conference

London Business School, the #1 ranked MBA by the Financial Times, will hold its 10th annual Women in Business Club Conference on Friday, March 5th, 2010. In addition to keynote speakers Helen Alexander CBE, President of CBI and Dr. Lynda Gratton, Professor of Management Practice, the conference will feature three panels to address the theme "Embracing Change in a Global Environment".

1. Taking the less trodden path: Pursuing non-traditional careers 

The global economic and financial crisis has prompted a re-evaluation of established models and practices. Indeed, it has perhaps encouraged many of us to think more seriously about the different routes there may be to having a significant and positive impact in society. In this panel we will hear from inspiring women (including entrepreneurs, career changers) who have ventured off the beaten path to pursue their own visions of success. 
Confirmed Panellists include: Dr. Heather McGregor, Principal shareholder of Taylor Bennett and Columnist; Mireille Guiliano, ex-CEO and Author; Dr Nighat Awan O.B.E., Entrepreneur and CEO of Shere Khan Group; Lorella Zanardo, Il Corpo del Donne

2. Success Stories from Emerging Markets: A woman’s perspective 

Since we first heard of ‘BRIC’, the emerging markets have become the key focus of future growth for many organisations. In this panel we will hear the experiences and insights of women who have firsthand experience in emerging markets, and observed the rapid transformation of these environments. 
Confirmed Panellists include: Jyotsna Suri, The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group; Haleh Janani, Emirates Bank; Puja Turner, Director Debt Capital Markets, Deutsche Bank; Inna Baigozina, Principal, A.T. Kearney

3. Pushing Boundaries for Women: Experiences from public and private sectors 

Is the glass ceiling metaphor still relevant today? Are women helping other women up the ranks? In this panel we will hear from senior women in both the private and public sector and compare their experiences of how women can best apply their skills and navigate success in these environments. 
Confirmed Panellists include: Dagmar Chlosta, VP Processes and Systems Solutions at Adidas; LaVerne Council, corporate VP and CIO at Johnson & Johnson; Eileen Sills CBE, Chief Nurse and Joint Director of Clinical Leadership Guy’s & St Thomas NHS Hospital; Louise Redmond, HR Director, Bank of England
