Looking to progress in your career? This event is for you! This event is designed to help with ‘people skills’ in general so book your place and join us for an informative and entertaining evening.


Our speaker, Kate Atkin, took her first management position at the age of 30 and at the time became the youngest, and only female manager, at Barclays Bank in Bene’t Street Cambridge.


She dealt with male chauvinism (to put it politely!), managing a difficult staff situation and had a fast learning curve in her specialist subject area of international trade.


Since that job, Kate has gained a wealth of experience in training many managers and leaders and in 2008 wrote 'The Confident Manager' based on her own and her course participants’ experiences over the years.
 
Attending this session will provide you with insights into what works, and what doesn’t, when managing people and will give you the courage and confidence to put yourself forward for the next step in your career.


Kate will cover areas such as delegation, giving feedback and why saying “no” is so vital. You will also pick up tips to develop your confidence and assertiveness levels – both important areas when managing others and dealing with your colleagues and superiors.
 
Cambridge AWiSE members: £10.00, non-members £14.50 (includes refreshments: tea, coffee and delicious Lucy Cavendish College cakes).
