Peninah Thomson spoke at Meyler Campbell on ‘Women on Boards: Coaching the Pipeline of Female Talent’
Companies which are serious about identifying their talented women and accelerating their progress need to build a robust ‘pipeline’ of high potential women, actively developing them to increase their progression rate to senior executive grades. Coaching plays a significant role in the efficacy of this pipeline. Properly targeted coaching has a dual impact: it benefits the individual women and their careers, and also the companies in which they are enabled to make an enhanced contribution, stepping up to ‘take their seat at the table’ and to play a meaningful part at the most strategic and influential levels. This event took place in November 2013.
