Stepping Into Leadership: with Fiona Craig, Founder, SmartWomen Connect

Smart Breakfast Sydney: Wednesday 1 August, 2018
Hosted by PwC


As you sit at your desk grinding out the work, you might think:

“What relevance does that have to me! I’m not a leader, I’m just the worker getting the job done.”

And you’re RIGHT. You do get the job done. And no doubt, you get the job done very well. Because technically, you’re great at what you do.

But there comes a point in most people’s careers where they are asked to (and want to) step it up a notch.

You might be thinking about the next promotion, or moving into a role where you’re going to be challenged with new aspects of the job you’ve never done before. Maybe it’s growing or managing a team. Maybe it’s growing or managing a client base. Maybe it’s growing and managing YOU.

And that’s when you need to shift focus from being the “doer” to being the “leader”.

Fiona has inspired, coached and mentored thousands of professional women to move beyond the technical and embrace the traits and behaviour of leadership, helping them step up to the next level of their career.

This topic is ideal for any woman who knows they want to progress and be the best they can be in their career – for themselves AND for others around them.
