Announcing our Special Guest Speakers...
Emma Dutton MBE Founder, Applied Influence Group
Emma breaks down the steps to influence and make change happen at Board level, through fine tuning our ability to 'Influence'. Emma served as an Engineer Officer in the RAF before transitioning to the influence capability of Military Intelligence. Over five tours of Afghanistan, she was placed in leadership and governance roles, leading teams to collect life-saving information. After a realisation that she was using the same influence skill set and methodology in her interactions with politicians and military commanders as she was with the Taliban, Emma co-founded the Applied Influence Group. She was honoured with an MBE in 2015 for her service in Afghanistan.

On hearing about the Intent Group proposition, it was of immediate appeal to me. We’re a billion dollar business, and I’ve worked in supply chain over 25 years. For us, it’s the perfect platform to collaborate, see if others share our beliefs about the future of agile supply chain, and to have more useful touchpoints outside of our business” NL, FMCG member.
Venue & travel
