Soft skills development: coming soon

In these sessions we will share the skills we already have and enable each other to develop the so-called “soft skills”, ideally – but not always – using examples and exercises that are not tax related.

Our commitment to attendees will be to ensure that they are aware of what the session will involve, and that if they are required to do anything individually (e.g. make a short presentation) this will be mentioned in the notice of the session. What we would ask of attendees is that they must all join in, so there are no observers in these sessions.

Topics will depend on what expertise our members have and are happy to share – we are planning a session on “finding your voice” (see below) and other suggestions we are considering are:

Presentation skills
Writing for publication/ e-publication/ journals


Finding your voice
by Wendy Bradley

February 2016, date and venue TBC

Does your voice carry your personality and authority the way you might wish?  In a playful session (expect to make some noises you’ve never made before!) we’ll be looking at how the voice is produced and how you can modify it to create the impact you desire.

Details will be listed on the website – see the events list to the right. Register with this site (also on the right hand site) for alerts and news.

Masterclass events – first now booking

The Masterclass Series will be roundtable discussions on a variety of technical topics, with the objective of creating a safe environment for women in tax to share their knowledge and learn from others. We will connect people who have a mutual interest in a topic, bringing together women in tax from different backgrounds and levels of experience. The discussions will help facilitate technical and soft skills development and promote the sharing of ideas.

At each event, the presenter will open up the discussion, before passing over to a number of contributors (the more the better!) who have signalled in advance they are keen to participate in the discussion. Observers are welcome to the discussion, either to join in on the night or just listen in. Everyone is welcome to join even if you’re not a subject matter expert. The discussion will last one hour followed by some networking drinks at a local establishment. We are keen for events to take place throughout the country so please let us know if you are keen to host or present an event.
