What does it take to be a 21st century leader? That is the question that many female City professionals want to know.

The corporate landscape is changing as is leadership. There is a need for people who lead with purpose and authenticity. Some might call it “feminine leadership”. Regardless of the name, the leaders of tomorrow are stepping up and looking towards an exciting new landscape.

One woman who is championing this shift is Dr Danusia Malina-Derben. As well as being a devoted mother to her 10 children, Danusia is a highly experienced and straight-talking top-leadership consultant who specialises in transforming C-suite executives into world-class leaders with unstoppable business prowess.

Danusia is a great supporter of women’s leadership development and emergence, frequently delivering programmes that progress top talent across the boardroom.

In line with this, Danusia will be a key speaker at the exciting one day conference, Changing The Playing Field which is being held by London’s leading diversity and inclusion consultancy and women’s mentor, Voice At The Table.

Balancing her global consultancy business at the same time as raising her family, including triplets of 3 years old, Danusia is an undisputed super-businesswoman and academic, having also published 30 international articles, addressed the Oxford Union and won funding to undertake ground-breaking business research.

She will be sharing her vision and advice on the unique strengths of women in the boardroom and what they bring to their leadership roles at this important and inspiring conference, which is being held at London law firm, Hogan Lovells.

Speaking about the upcoming event, Danusia said, “It is so important for us to come together and talk about the ways in which we can harness our unique strengths in productive and collaborative ways.

“I’m very excited and honoured to be a key note speaker at the Changing The Playing Field Conference and look forward to meeting, engaging with and learning from the inspiring professional women of the City of London.”

Founder and managing director of event organiser, Voice At The Table, Rina Goldenberg Lynch said, “The Changing The Playing Field conference will be an exciting event for all our delegates who can expect some fantastic insights and a wealth of experience from our excellent speakers, including Dr Malina-Derben.

“The Conference is a great opportunity for professional mid-career women and senior HR managers from city institutions to learn about their personal leadership style, how to maximise input from a mixed gender, high performing team and how to become instruments of change in their companies.”

Also speaking at the event is world-renowned yachtswoman Tracy Edwards MBE and expert performance consultant Dr Pauline Crawford.

About Voice At The Table and Rina Goldenberg Lynch

Voice At The Table is a diversity and inclusion consultancy with the core aim of providing companies and their female workforce with the tools to progress and contribute authentically and improving the representation of women at all levels.

The consultancy takes a two-pronged approach. Firstly, it aims to transform corporate culture in order to facilitate women’s particular talents, to uncover the potential to deliver a stronger business with more women in leadership, to change the model of leadership to a more collaborative style with emphasis on emotional intelligence for leaders and to promote an adaptable working environment for both women and men.

Secondly, Voice At The Table intends to unlock the full potential of women by building confidence, changing internal dialogue and challenging assumptions.

Similar topics that have featured in Voice At The Table’s Training Academy have included “The Mindset for Success”, “Become More Assertive”, “Get Better at Stress” and “Find Your Strengths for Career Success” all of which have had impressive feedback from attendees.

The consultancy has worked with a variety of clients including American Express Brighton, ING Bank London and Amsterdam and FTI Consulting. Event and Training delegates have come from Deloittes, Royal Mail and The Royal Bank of Canada.

The business was founded by Rina Goldenberg Lynch who is an Accredited Associate Executive Coach and a qualified ILM Level 5 trainer.

Rina worked for 20 years as a City lawyer and executive and so has a wealth of skills that a corporate career imparts. In recent years, Rina has been working on diversity and inclusion matters (D&I), including strategy development and initiatives. She has experience coaching and mentoring women across the board in corporate, not-for-profit and entrepreneurial sectors.

Rina’s belief is that confidence is the key ingredient to a woman’s success and focuses on building this attribute as an ingredient in all services offered by Voice At The Table.
