We are in a new era of communication, from operating on a hybrid model to further integrating technology into our daily work lives, to the greater value placed on leading from a place of empathy, understanding, and trust.

As female leaders in business, how do we navigate these changes within our local organisation and cross-culturally? How does this impact the ways we communicate? Examining our evolving ways of communicating is now more important than ever to address the new frontier of work life, manage cross-cultural teams, and nurture true equality in our organisations

Told from the perspective of a business leader to other executives, aspiring leaders and entrepreneurs, Frédérique will address the value of the soft skills that are needed for clear, concise, creative communication in a cross-cultural organisation, and align how we can nurture these soft skills to collaborate best with modern technology and ways of working. Ultimately, elevating our voice as women in business and technology, and exemplifying what communications means in the modern business world.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • How to nurture soft communications skills is just as important to effective leadership and collaboration, as knowledge of new technology and industry
  • Communication does not look or sound the same in every culture: cross-cultural understanding is critical when working at a global level
  • Technology is here to support the ways we work and increase collaboration, not to replace tried and tested ways of communicating

This session is for you if… you are looking at new ways to maintain attention and concisely convey your messages in day-to-day communications in our increasingly digital world.
