Debate surrounds the concept of leadership; is it an innate and inherent ability held by a small number of people, or can anyone rise to the challenge of leadership? Into this complex field of study comes the issue of female leadership. Does it differ from male leadership, and if so, what are those defining characteristics? Women in their own way, wield enormous influence and have inspired many to their respective cause. In this panel, leaders will join together to discuss female leadership in business services.
