Led by Jersey Finance’s Director – GCC, An Kelles – we are delighted to host one of our Perspectives: Women in Leadership series of events in Doha, building on the insights and success of these events since 2018.
Our inaugural event “A View from the Top” broadened our focus beyond wealth management to explore the perspectives and experience offered by today’s women in leadership, globally, working across multiple business sectors and regions.
Now we are seeing the continued growth of women’s key leadership roles in the workforce. Our events aim to tap into this rich source of inspiration, expertise and insight, whilst enabling women in leadership to support each other by connecting and building global networks.
These events will hear from female business leaders and authorities in their field discussing their experience and insights in the financial services industry.
