The highest achievers reach the top with the help of their networks: they know their strengths but also their weaknesses and when to ask for help. Yet, there is still a great deal of reticence to open up to our contacts – although the culture is changing and people are increasingly recognising the power of sharing.

Our special guest, author and expert Andy Lopata (see BIO below), has interviewed several senior executives, stars, outstanding individuals from a range of sectors to explore how vulnerability and openness have impacted their journey, culminating in his latest book "Just Ask": http://www.andylopata.com/justask

In this talk, Andy will share some of the powerful stories and lessons that came out of his research. Some of the questions he tackles:

# Can a modern leader show vulnerability and still shine?

# what changes in mindset are needed to untap the power of your network?

# How can we develop strong, trust-based networks and gain support?

We look forward to welcoming you for a special Thursday evening
