22. Closing Plenary: Meet Hayley Barnard – Entrepreneur, adventurer, passionate about tackling unconscious bias and leadership challenges

This session will be video recorded and made available on the Conference App after the event
Come with Hayley on a journey from desk-bound office dweller to sleeping in a tent at -42 degrees in the Arctic, and spending over 14 hours in cold water swimming across the busiest shipping lane in the world. Along the way Hayley will share some mindset tools that served her well then on expeditions and even better now as Managing Director of two companies. Hayley’s session will support and inspire you. She’ll cover:

  • If you don’t ask you don’t get - whether it’s asking of ourselves or of our workplaces
  • Overcoming Imposter Syndrome - how to give yourself more credit and use your influence for good
  • Spin-it - how to rebrand your in-house counsel job in your mind and how that can spill out into how other individuals and departments view and value you too
  • Why fear is normal - the easy option is never satisfying, and courage is your special power

Hayley will be introduced by William D. Wright, Partner at Fisher & Phillips LLP

Sponsor: Fisher Phillips LLP

Date: Tuesday 24 May 2022 Time: 14:00 - 15:30 Level: B I A
