Our Women in Leadership series for 2023 continues with Caroline Keeling, CEO with Keelings Fruit as our guest speaker.  MC for this event will be Ingrid Walsh, Head of Foundation, General Medicines UK & Ireland and GM General Medicines Ireland with Sanofi.

We’re really looking forward to the conversation between these two leaders about their career journeys to date, some of the lessons learnt, challenges faced and what excites them for the future.  

Please note that this series is not a women only event!
All members are most welcome to these inspiring and thought provoking leadership events.
