Sheffield finance professionals discuss leadership

14 October 2010
Last week, over 35 of Sheffield’s leading finance professionals met to discuss effective leadership styles in a forum hosted by Hays Senior Finance, the recruiting expert. The event was held at the Leopold Hotel in Sheffield and included representatives from leading local businesses.

Speakers included Adele Pennington, Mountain Expedition Leader and the only British female to have climbed Everest twice, and Paula Duncan, Chartered Occupational Psychologist specialising in the assessment of senior and executive level individuals. Both shared their thoughts and experiences on the defining characteristics of effective leaders, particularly when under extreme pressure.

James Murray, Regional Manager at Hays Senior Finance, comments: "It is great that we could provide a forum for Sheffield’s finance professionals to discuss topical issues. Leaders in the industry were also able to network and share thoughts on a topic which is pivotal to developing and progressing the real entrepreneurs of business."
