Want to be seen as a leader in your organisation? 

A measure of leadership is influence. True leadership doesn’t come from being appointed a leader, it comes from influence, which can’t be mandated it must be earned. Build the right kind of relationships with the right people and you can become a real leader in an organisation.

ICON SA is pleased to invite you to hear from a panel of BD and Marketing professionals to learn how you can develop your influence within your organisation to demonstrate the value you generate for the firm, develop as a leader within the business and progress your career aspirations.
