Speed mentoring – 24 April 2024 at Barclays 

Mission accomplished! 

With a motivation at the top, 50 members of Women In Finance France participated last Wednesday in our first 2024 speed-mentoring session in preparation for joining the Boards!

We are extremely grateful to have been welcomed by Barclays, and especially thank Caroline Gahnassia Berdah and Raoul Salomon for their warm welcome and their unfailing commitment to our side 🙏


During a small group workshop, our members were able to benefit from ultra-personalized and pragmatic advice from a panel of influential financial personalities:

Raoul Salomon, CEO of Barclays France

Lucille Desjonquères, President of LEYDERS ASSOCIATES

Jerome Hamon, Partner at Egon Zehnder

Isabelle Reux-Brown, Member of the Board of Directors of Swiss Life Asset Managers

Ann Van Aken, member of several private equity advisory boards, European Investment Bank (EIB) Luxembourg

The testimonies of our mentors reinforce the missions of Women In Finance France:

"Women must develop their leadership, their network and their soft skills... this is what is sought after today on the Boards".

"To access a first mandate of Board you have to work on your course and your network in the fine mesh"

"Women must get out of their comfort zone, dare to go to board positions and be bold. They have the capacity!"

A huge thank you to all our mentors, to all our members for their active participation and to Barclays for this incredibly successful and inspiring evening!
