Access the ‘X’ factor of Commercial Acumen and make your career soar! F2f or livestream

Mark 31st August for NAWO's very first live streamed Quick Bite event!

How do you create impact with Commercial Acumen?

Today’s operations organisations need leaders, managers and employees who can directly contribute to the achievement of their company’s goals and objectives by making the right decisions using their instinct and acumen.

Commercial Acumen is viewed as the ‘X’ factor in maintaining the competitive advantage in business and for breaking through middle management to the executive level. Why is this elusive quality so important for getting ahead and how can you apply its attributes to your professional situation?

NAWO is excited to offer a series of nation-wide professional development events focused directly on attaining that ‘X’ factor. Sponsored and hosted by our Gold Corporate Member, BP, you will hear from two of the organisation’s top female executives :

Brooke Miller, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, BP Australia, and

Amanda Woollard, Retail General Manager, BP Australia

They will share their success stories and prove you don’t have to come from a financial background to succeed at the executive level!

This will be followed by a 2-hour workshop on building Commercial Acumen for career success facilitated by Michelle Redfern, Facilitator & Program Manager of Lighthouse.

You will learn to:

  • Understand the three elements of leadership
  • Consider the career advice you have been given and see how it maps to what has typically been provided to women
  • Contextualise how this issue manifests in the operations environments in which we all work
  • Develop an individual action plan to close any gaps in both developing and demonstrating the “missing 33%” in the career success equation

Put your ideas into action and achieve business, strategic and financial acumen with NAWO!
