Join us for dinner, drinks & a chance to meet fellow entrepreneurs, followed by an after-dinner talk and informal Q&A with Amanda Davie, who’ll be talking about the role of emotional intelligence in leadership.

Sorry gents, this dinner is ladies only.

Being in tune with your own emotions and having strong awareness of the emotions of the people around you, can be vital for leading your team. Known as 'emotional intelligence', this will be the dinner conversation and our speaker is perfectly placed to lead the discussion. She is an ECR Certified Coach, which means she is trained by emotional intelligence experts RocheMartin to define, measure and develop EQ in leadership.

Amanda was one of the UK's digital media pioneers. She started her career in digital media, where in her last role for i-level, she grew the search business from scratch into a team of forty, with annual media billings of £30m, in four years. She has since started her own digital management consulting firm as well as a non-profit, voluntary programme that matched business mentors with high potential digital talent. More recently, she trained as an executive coach, specialising in coaching leaders in fast-moving and volatile environments and in helping women transition back to work after having children. No rest for the wicked, last year she co-founded Digital Talent @Work, a professional and leadership development business committed to putting people at the heart of digital transformation.

Phew, Amanda has been busy! Good news for us though, as it means she has a wealth of great first hand experiences to share on the evening’s topic.

Take this chance to meet Amanda and other ladies that share the same interests as you over dinner and a glass or two of wine.

Price includes private dining experience with after dinner speaker, 2 course dinner with wine and highly curated and relevant networking.

About Amanda - "I am an executive coach and digital talent consultant. I love all things digital; the digital talent in particular.

I am proud to say that I was one of the UK's digital media pioneers. In 1998 I stared at my blue MSDOS screen and wondered what the future of work would look like. So I applied for a job with the strange new word in it - "Internet" - and embarked upon a career in digital media: firstly at 24/7 Media managing pan-European online ad campaigns; before going on to build search marketing operations for Outrider (a WPP agency, now MEC) and for the award-winning digital media agency i-level, where I grew the search business from scratch into a team of forty, with annual media billings of £30m, in four years.

In 2008 I bumped my head on the proverbial glass ceiling and it hurt. So I quit my high-powered job and set up my own digital management consulting firm, Reform. Also determined to help other women in my sector to not bump their heads, in 2011 I launched Mentoring Digital Minds, a non-profit, voluntary programme that matched business mentors with high potential digital talent.

In 2015 I decided to try a more impactful approach to helping business leaders and change makers. I trained as an executive coach, launched my own coaching practice and am now a member of the Association for Coaching. I specialise in coaching leaders in fast-moving and volatile environments, like the digital and technology industry, and in helping women transition back to work after having children.

My entrepreneurial muscle still pumping, last year I co-founded Digital Talent @Work, a professional and leadership development business committed to putting people at the heart of digital transformation.

In my unpaid time I am also a mentor on the Cherie Blair Foundation Mentoring Programme, mum, wife, volunteer in a homeless shelter, karaoke queen, retired hooker (rugby!) and champion for helping working mums find a better work/life balance – it does exist and we are worth it!"
