SiP favourite Louise Beale was back in action this week hosting some more presentation workshops.
Louise was first on-site at Schroders in London, and then facilitated a virtual session with one of the research directors from WisdomTree Investments. Louise demonstrates how the use of storytelling is vital to bring impact to communication, and the best ways to deliver a punchy TED style address.
Everyone’s had a great day at the Schroders Adviser Investment Forum. Ben Lyttleton, football journalist and author, closed the conference with his thoughts on how the world’s most popular sport can offer key lessons on the world of work, particularly in terms of recruiting and retaining talent. Ben will also be joining us in April, at MiP’s flagship event, JiC.
Janus Henderson Investors
Today saw the return of the Janus Henderson Annual Investment Conference. Kickstarting proceedings was Zanny Minton-Beddoes, Editor-in-Chief of The Economist, setting the scene for the geopolitical landscape in 2023. Closing the conference was generational expert Dr Paul Redmond, with his illuminating insights into the relationship between emerging technologies and Gen Z, and what this means for the workplace of the future.
