An away day for women (and allies) in retail leadership roles

8 November 2022. London

Retail Women In Leadership 2022

This event is an away day for women in Retail HR leadership to come
and reset, refocus and be ‘nurtured’ for a day… with three inspirational
speakers and moderated by MOK O’Keeffe.

The last two years have demanded more from our HR Retail Leaders than most could have been physically
and mentally prepared for. From the outset of what was arguably the biggest crisis of our lives, our
retail Teams (especially in HR) immediately stepped up to the plate to spearhead critical WFH strategy, nurture
and motivate scattered and confused teams, navigate legal requirements that changed at breakneck
speed, manage the myriad of concerns for frontline workers and those unable to work remotely,
stay on top of the additional pressures of their own precious home life, child care,
schooling etc.

Most organisations rely heavily on HR teams specifically to carry on and meet business goals that were
unthinkable prior to 2020. Burnout, fatigue, mental health, exhaustion, and much more was
sidestepped and ignored as they kept calm and carried on.

The team here at TRB have had a front row seat as these talented individuals have found new ways
to reset work/life processes and stay ahead of all the challenges.
We have been witness to exemplary demonstrations of leadership especially in HR teams, in our panel discussions on
and off broadcast. Some discussions have been so stirring we have been left speechless. Our HR
leaders have taken charge, innovated, inspired, and generally impressed us no end. BUT…If we
truly want a strong recovery post-pandemic, then we must nurture and re-energise our women and
allies in leadership roles. It’s better for our workforce, our economy, our businesses and most
importantly ourselves.

To this end, we are enormously proud to be hosting an away day for our women in leadership roles, especially HR. We have a special focus on for our women in senior HR roles, but this is open for all women in retail leadership as many of the challenges have been similar despite the role. Ans of course - open to our allies despite agenda!

If you are one of our Retail Leaders – this is a day for YOU! To re-energise, rethink, reset and
feed off our remarkable contributors.

Moderated by MOK O’Keeffe.
