I enjoy speaking at conferences and events as part of my mission to support the development of women leaders in the City. One of the subjects I speak about is applying the insights from neuroscience to leadership development. Aligning with the brain's approach to developing relationships, optimising thinking and maximising productivity, for example, allows leaders to achieve better results in a shorter timeframe - whilst creating a balanced approach to both work and the rest of life.
I believe we need "Developed Leaders" who are able to create a balance between the many facets of their leadership role whilst also finding a “brilliant balance” between work and the rest of life.
I am particularly keen to talk to groups of current and aspiring women leaders in the City to assist them in developing the balance – both within their roles and between work and the rest of life – necessary for sustainable careers. This balance has tremendous benefits for both the women themselves and the organisations for which they work.
If you would like to learn more about how I help women become "Developed Leaders", please go here.

"I invited Catherine to talk at The Confident Mother 3rd annual online conference. The theme of this year's event is confidently balancing work and life. Catherine shared her thoughts and knowledge on How to develop a confident mind-set and create a more balanced life. She explained what we can learn from neuroscience to build and nurture our confidence at work.
My audience (ambitious women in the City, in technology and professional services) really enjoyed Catherine's talk.
As the event host and organiser I found Catherine to be very easy to work with. Professional, prepared and poised.
Thank you Catherine for being a fabulous contributor to the event."
