The Trials and Tribulations of Leadership in a small Market Town

Location: Zoom

We hear so much about the lack of opportunity for 

women in the workplace, but it’s great to know that there are and have been men in leadership positions who see the absolute benefit of creating an environment that fosters the growth of women.

Ron Simpson BEM is a patron of the women in management network. He retired at the age of 52 from the role of Regional Director of the Local Government Management Board where he led an award winning, predominantly female, team supporting the 45 local authorities in the East Midlands. His presentation provides a tale of triumph over adversity in creating and delivering with likeminded colleagues a community governance model respected in other parts of the UK.  Women figure significantly in his story.

Ron was awarded the EMMA Lifetime Achievement Award n 2017 for his outstanding contribution to women’s development.
