Published 19th Jul 2018

“Step Up To Leadership” was the theme of the networking event hosted by Global WPR at this year’s Cannes Lions and we have some hot tips to pass on.

Senior women and “manbassadors” from the festival attended a Happy Hour of drinks at the ICCO House of PR to hear Co-Founders, Sue Hardwick and Angela Oakes talk about the importance of female leaders inspiring the next generation of women to have the self-belief to “step up” and achieve success.

We took the opportunity to catch up with some of the attendees to film their quick tips on how to #StepUp – please click on each link to hear their thoughts:
