In June 2017, Maynard Leigh held its breakfast seminar at the Fortune Theatre in London's West End. We asked leaders from some of the most recognisable companies in the world, two questions. What’s the point of you? And what’s your point of view? We also had two guest speakers share ideas around leadership that can be applied successfully to business.
Guest Speakers Included:
Julie Mangan - Capgemini UK Plc
Julie Mangan acts as the Company Secretary for Capgemini’s UK & Irish businesses and is Vice President for Corporate Services. During her time with Capgemini, Julie has run Commercial Operations and was Legal Director for a decade. Julie was highly commended in the Finals of the search for “Britain’s Best Boss” and as well as acting as Company Secretary.
