Quick quote Joanne Lockwood

By chance, I just happened to meet Joanne Lockwood just before I delivered my talk at the People Power conference. Joanne kindly stayed for my talk so out of courtesy I thought it only polite to do the same. I arrogantly however, thought I pretty much knew most things about Diversity and Inclusion so thought it would be interesting, because Joanne seemed lovely and interesting, but if I’m to be totally honest… I didn’t think I’d learn anything new. My goodness how wrong could I be!!!!! Not only did Joanne open my eyes to so many things I hadn’t considered before but I also don’t remember feeling so inspired by a speaker who can turn a subject about something we all think we know more than we actually do, into something so interesting, clever and moving! So, a massive thank you to you Joanne, I’m so lucky and grateful that I just so happened to sit next to you.

I was fortunate enough to hear Joanne speak at an Inclusive Recruitment event that we held in our offices recently. Joanne spoke with a calm authority and delivered a presentation that mixed inspiration, emotion and humour. She set the tone in the opening minutes with a story that was disarming yet pin-point accurate to the subject matter. We were also lucky that Joanne had time to hang around to do a Q&A which meant we got some practical questions around inclusive recruitment answered by an expert. I would highly recommend Joanne as a speaker on this topic.
