Meeting of the Quilter Mentee Network on 7 November 2018
 

The Quilter Mentee Network met on Wednesday 7th November 2018. Mentees and Alumnae of the Next Generation Women Leaders Programme were welcomed by Mr Paul Hucknall, HR Director, Quilter, followed by an introduction and update from Ms Peninah Thomson OBE, Chief Executive, The Mentoring Foundation.
 
They then enjoyed an "in conversation with…" session with Ms Anna Keeling, Senior Vice President – Business Transformation, GKN Aerospace.
 

Anna, who holds an Aerospace Engineering degree and an MBA, and has been listed as "One of 2017′s 100 Women to Watch" in Cranfield’s Female FTSE Board Report, outlined her career journey and described some of the benefits (and challenges) of leading high-performing teams in a traditional engineering environment.

 
The previous Network meeting was in July 2018, when Mentees and Alumnae heard from Ms Emmajane Varley, Global Head of Communications for Private Banking, HSBC Holdings plc, an alumna of Cohort 3. Emmajane spoke about her career, and shared valuable insights into the art of conversation and storytelling; the creation of unmissable content; and the challenges and opportunities in changing organisational culture.
