“I fed the office cat (& sometimes cleared out his litter tray), picked up my boss’s dry cleaning, went to the sandwich shop and collected everybody else’s sandwiches, took the franking machine to the Post Office, made tea for the builders, did lots of photocopying and faxing (what’s a fax?!) and my first client was an envelope manufacturer. We all start somewhere and look where I am today!” Mary Whenman has carved a communications career through pastures such as Hill and Knowlton, FleishmanHillard, Grayling and interim positions at Cadbury and Freud. Currently the Managing Director of Weber Shandwick’s Corporate, Financial and Public Affairs Department, Mary will be discussing her career and how to reach the top. This workshop would suit individuals at the mid-level in their career (Senior Account Manager – Associate Director).

Refreshments will be provided.
