04:05 PM – 04:20 PM (UK Time)       Finding Your WILD
Speaker:
Emma Burdett
* Founder – WILD – Women in Leadership Deliver
A number of years ago I worked for a large corporate who asked me if I would set up a Women’s Empowerment platform. Having been in Dubai and the construction/interiors sector I had some close connections with Women in leadership. What originally started as four Women sat around a table with a sheet of paper has since become a staple, vibrant and integral network within the UAE. At the time I realized that there was a niche in the market and a wider opportunity to include ALL Women from the sector. After leaving the role I I decided to take time out and embarked on an incredible journey of self -discovery, courage and a striking realization that inspiring Women was indeed a passion. Bringing Women together, creating a community and making a difference was something I felt compelled to do. I was able to build on my expertise and experience to create WILD. After encountering significant challenges of which, have enabled me to be open, authentic and useful in encouraging other Women, I wrote WILD from scratch. My prerequisite was to create a platform for ALL women to come together, feel a sense of belongingness, hold events where Women can network with purpose and hear personal journey stories from a range of Women; both influencers at the top of their game and younger females just starting out. I wanted every female in the room to leave feeling inspired, motivated, confident and ready to take on the World! WILD accomplishes just that. With events full to the brim and Women on the edge of their seats I am proud of the impact WILD is making.
