An unforgettable day for ambitious women building their future in media, marketing and communication leadership.

WACL’s Festival of Talent 2024 is a one-day accelerator for female leaders. With speakers, workshops and performances, the hybrid event provides a best-in-class leadership toolkit that attendees can put in to use straight away, helping them maximise their impact.

This year’s programme is curated to inspire and enable attendees to build their leadership from within; developing the power of leading from a place of internal strength to unlock potential and unleash creativity in others. 

Designed for emerging and established female leaders, the day will explore how new models of leadership can unlock self-awareness, emotional regulation and is key to protecting, sustaining and strengthening our industry’s life blood: creativity. 

“Felt like an inclusive space, with speakers of many different backgrounds and abilities – having such different perspectives was deeply refreshing”
