Fiona Cannon – Inclusion & Diversity Director, Lloyds Banking Group: The Diversity Champion

In this session you’ll learn more about Fiona’s career; effecting change ‘from the inside’, a fresh approach to flexible working and getting more women on the board.

Three takeaways:

1. Recommended resource: Timewise Jobs is a great resource for seeking jobs with an agile and flexible approach.

2. Be more productive today: Use technology – Skype and Webex reduce the need for travelling to endless meetings.

3. Make an impression: You have 30 seconds to make your mark, avoid wearing distracting jewellery/clothes but do standout for the right reason – make it part of your personal brand.
