In the often cut throat, challenging and competive world of work, we often forget the human element. As well as buildings, equipment, structures and finances, organisations consist fundamentally of people with have an innate need to be understood.

With a special focus on empathy at work, she will outline ways that we can enhance our empathic potential in an frequently uncaring organisational arena.
