This interactive ‘warts and all’ Growth Workshop was led by FEO Member Helen Gibson, Managing Director of Agencia. Drawing on over two decades of Agencia’s experience, Helen shared stories, practical examples, and tips which both inspired and encouraged attendees to explore working overseas. Serving to bust some of the myths around the challenges of working internationally, this session was geared towards how to take advantage of international opportunities, whilst managing the risks.
A big thank you to Helen for an interesting and thought provoking session.
