Redwood’s CEO Lucy Close, a highly respected and experienced Leadership Coach, today addressed an audience of over 500 executives from across the US financial sector on leadership theory and practice at the AICPA Women’s Global Leadership Summit in Boston. View the programme here.

Entitled ‘Politics with a lower case ‘p’’, Lucy’s one hour seminar focused on developing leadership identity and how to successfully manage both career and life with sophisticated political skills.

In the context of women in leadership, Lucy spoke on universally applicable techniques that address the multifaceted behavioural systems facing all executives in industry today. The interactive seminar was informed by academic theory and real life case studies, enabling participants to challenge perceptions about their own behaviours in real time, as well as providing tools on navigating differing organisational models.

As a key note speaker at the two day conference, Lucy was joined at the informative seminar series by other inspirational speakers including Oracle CEO, Safra Catz and Vandana Juneja, Senior Regional Director, Central Canada, Catalyst Inc.
