SIGBI Leadership and Club Development Days

Development Day 2017

This year’s event is being held at Conference Aston, which is part of Aston University in Birmingham on Saturday the 10th June 2017.

The purpose of the day is to learn how to strengthen our voice and influence and achieve our ambition to be the leading international organization for today’s women.  Live events might seem old-fashioned in an increasingly virtual world; however, they can still provide a powerful and effective way to improve relationships, deepen networking and build and create a buzz around our goals and aspirations.

Ann Hodgson, Federation President, will open the day with her theme Step and Lead. Our main speaker this year is Jasvinder Sanghera, CBE, the founder of Karma Nirvana.  Jasvinder will tell us how she has got her voice heard and how she works in partnership with other organisations to achieve the change she wants to see.

There is a choice of three workshops:

  • Understanding our relationship with the United Nations and strengthen our voice
  • Getting our voice heard – Media Training (Radio/TV interviews)
  • Make your Club a success – new ways of enriching members’ experience

This day is valuable to all and in particular to officers, or those thinking about taking office, at Regional and Club level. The focus of the day is you.


Isobel Smith, Director of Organisational Development
