In their words...

"Working with Emily and the Conversation Space at our International Women’s Day Event provided a real clear, consistent and engaging approach and framework for our colleagues. People left feeling like they had the tools and knowledge to face into conversations they may have previously avoided. This is one step on our approach to supporting our Women of William Hill and this investment in their development was invaluable – for women and the guys! I’d definitely recommend Emily and the team at the Conversation Space to support you and your businesses in putting the human touch into conversations"

Sarah Barnett and her team at William Hill understand the importance of conversations, particularly when it comes to engaging and retaining talent.

As part of their work on the #WOW (Women of William Hill) agenda, they invited Conversation Space to run an inspiring bitesize session on International Women’s Day.

The aim was to provide a framework and tools for participants to be able to face into conversations they had previously avoided.


The session, which was broadcast globally to locations in Sofia, Krakow, Gibraltar, Manilla and the US, covered:

  • The power of conversation
  • How to increase your self-awareness
  • How conversations can empower or hold us back
  • Conversational Wisdom® – 3 top tips to practice growing courage in conversations

Take a look at this short video of the day here.


Running this session in a blended way, both face to face and virtually, has enabled people at William Hill to have a clear, consistent and engaging framework from which to hold conversations.

Participants left the session feeling like they had the tools and knowledge to face into conversations they may previously have avoided.

It also provided an invaluable step in the company’s approach to supporting their Women of William Hill.
