The Aspire 2020 Reinvent Virtual Conference

14th October 2020 - 2:00 pm - 15th October 2020 - 7:00 pm

In this new era, it is critical to make time for our well-being, career planning and visibility. With so many changes, we must reevaluate at speed and stand out in our lives, careers and as businesses and organisations. Join women from across the world as we reinvent ourselves and create a career and life of impact and visibility.

Do you have a plan for your career right now?
How will you stand out in a new and challenging marketplace?
Do you have the latest tools to manage higher levels of stress?
Can you make a difference to the issues that are important to you?

Join Dr Sam Collins, named as ‘One of the Top 200 Women to Impact Business and Industry’ by Her Majesty The Queen and ‘A Woman Shaping the World’ by CNN as she curates and leads this new event with 15 hand picked speakers from around the world.
