Hugely Successful Day at the Women of Hitachi Summit 2017
Denise Watkins, HICSE's Business Development Manager, and 4 other members of HICSE have just returned from a fantastic event which was run by and for the amazing women of Hitachi. This was the 5th annual Women of Hitachi (WOH formerly WIN) summit for the EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) region and Denise's 2nd year as a member of the core team responsible for organising the event - so no pressure!
The WOH Summit aims to provide participants with opportunities to enhance their success and contributions which they can make to the company. It addresses needs and issues within the workplace, and provides attendees with resources which they can utilise to aid their aspirations.
There were 100 delegates from 18 different Hitachi Ltd group companies at this year’s event. The theme was Transforming for Success, with a strong focus on understanding your traits and environment to maximise your potential.
There were some interesting keynote speakers and delegates took part in some fab workshops on Social Thinking, Thinking about Thinking and Megatrends.
HICSE can send up to 5 delegates to the annual summit which is fewer than we would like but we do try to offer the opportunity to a different group each year. These events are such a good opportunity to meet other women from a variety of different professional backgrounds.
It's also a great opportunity to learn some new skills and have some fun!
Last year a video was created and uploaded to the Hitachi Brand Channel on Youtube which explains more about last years WIN Summit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5CdDFAeirA
