What kind of leader do you want to be?

The theme of the fourth annual WIE Symposium New York was The Female Advantage, which was about playing to your strengths and staying authentic. The event was hosted by Katie Couric and Nadja Swarovski and featured speakers such as Tyra Banks, Brooke Shields, Norma Kamali and Aileen Lee.

We heard from some of the most dynamic leaders in business, fashion, philanthropy, politics and entertainment on topics such as Leveraging Your Personal Brand, The Spirit of Competition, Thinking Outside the Box, Tech: The New Frontier and Women Making the News. And we engaged in useful master-classes that ranged from Executive Presence and Media Training to Negotiation skills and Leveraging Your Network.

Some new features, such as The WIE Debate featured lively and thought provoking discussions about issues of the day.

At WIE, you'll connect with your peers, and you'll broaden your knowledge and enhance your skill set. Whether you’re an ambitious executive blazing your way to the top or a change-maker addressing the social issues that matter, this conference is for you.

We look forward to seeing you at our next event.

Kind regards
