An Evening with Sarah Wood, Co-Founder of Unruly

WiTT is very pleased to announce a special members-only evening with Sarah Wood, CEO and co-founder of video ad tech company Unruly. Sarah will discuss her new book,  Stepping Up: How to Accelerate Your Leadership Potential.

Stepping Up is a breakthrough leadership manifesto which urges everyone to transform business culture for the better. It’s a call to arms and a practical toolkit for building quality leadership. The book asserts the need for more diverse leaders at all levels and from all backgrounds in today’s business world.

Unruly is one of the world’s most innovative ad tech companies; it employs 300 people globally and was acquired by News Corp in 2015 for £114 million.

This supportive, how-to book asserts that traditional management texts are no longer fit for purpose and only serve to lock out people and possibilities. It’s a call to arms that dares everyone and anyone to step up and lead in a disrupted world where success depends on harnessing technology, embracing our humanity and leaning into change.

Our evening with Sarah will start with drinks and networking from 6:00 to 6:45pm. We will sit down to dinner at 6:45pm. Sarah will speak to us at 8:00pm. The evening will conclude at approximately 9:15pm.

This event is open to WiTT individual and corporate members only. If you are not a member and are interested in this event, please email info@wittgroup.org for membership details.
