Cordell will talk about how her unexpected life story led to the development of
Result CIC, a successful social enterprise providing coaching and training to
people who continue to be marginalised in society, particularly in times of
economic uncertainly. Jane’s talk will challenge the audience to consider how
talent can be ‘hidden in plain sight’ and pose questions to help expand how we
develop responsibility in business.
