Keynote Talk - Chartered Institute of Securities & Investments - 13th March 2019

Tuesday 23rd April 2019

Understanding the importance of diversity to profitability and the responsibilities of privilege. It is so vital in this diverse climate in which we live and work that organisations embrace and champion diversity. Not only does it make them more profitable (as countless research indicates), they are missing key skills and diversity of thought, ideas and innovation to take their businesses forward. I was honoured to be asked to deliver a keynote address on these issues at the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investments in Liverpool. Thank you for the amazing feedback too. Make a difference to your profit and your staff....embrace and champion diversity.
