Sarah Hopkins joined the speaker panel at the Erasmus University College International Women's Day 2019 event at their beautiful building in Rotterdam Blaak alongside Lijnie Reiers, a clinical behavioural scientist and martial arts expert, and Aynouk Tan, a fashion anthropologist.
Each gave their vision for women on this day of celebration and honouring women across the world and raising funds for the Fairfight Foundation which does such great work in empowering women in situations of difficulty or poverty through martial arts.
'My talk was focused on women and working with purpose which seemed to resonate with the audience and receieved super feedback which was lovely. It was a great opportunity to network and share ideas and different perspectives in an open and collaborative manner.'
'I was proud to be part of such a unique and diverse event which embodied the themes of International Women's Day.' commented Sarah, seen below with Ginie Servant, Senior Lecturer, EUC and Chair of The Fairfight Foundation, Lijnie Reiers and Aynouk Tan.

2018 has seen a real uplift in demand for our professional Outplacement & Career Transitioning Service, supporting senior individuals as they transition from organisations or roles, or make key career decisions.
Our Practice Group draws upon the Coaching credentials and Career Management skills of our highly experienced Consultants, and leverages our insight into the executive jobs market. Blending the specific needs of the Outplacement client with some tried and tested methodologies, we create a unique Programme for each Executive or Manager.
The very bespoke and personal nature of our Programme can provide much needed practical support and confidence building for Executives and Managers. We've kept the offer very flexible, recognising the requirement to tailor it to fit clients individual needs and in-house requirements.
At the launch of its third annual review last week, the Hampton Alexander report revealed that there are only 12 female chief executives among Britain's 350 leading listed companies and almost one in four of these firms still have only one woman on their board.
The original target of 33% female representation on FTSE Boards by 2020 looks to be being achieved; although the fact that the number of female chief executives is reducing and the number of companies with 'one and done' (one female on the board with little effort being made to increase numbers) plus the fact that there are still companies with all male boards made for concerning reading.
There was an animated discussion with some high profile female leaders contributing their thoughts and ideas which were stimulating and exciting for the future, particularly Miriam Gonzalez-Durantez who called for more to be done and "a revolution"!
"I was most proud to be at the Hampton Alexander Review Launch and it was an impressive event hosted by KPMG in Canary Wharf. There was a real buzz in the room showing this critical topic is still front of mind and has a sea of support for it."
"However the results left me thinking of my old school reports and the comment 'could do better'! The panellists were supportive of a stronger more proactive approach which I would agree with although I think there needs to be a middle ground between evolution and revolution to ensure long term success"
"We must congratulate those who have made such great strides forward and support the work to develop the future pipelines of candidates into these important high profile roles."
"The critical role we, as recruitment consultants, play in supporting clients in finding and managing female candidates to create more balanced boards was once again highlighted," commented Sarah Hopkins, Director, HopkinsLongworth Executive Search
For the second year running Sarah Hopkins, Director of HopkinsLongworth, was delighted to join students of Moreton Hall at their recent 'Directors Table'.
Students from the sixth form, who run the successful Moreton Enterprises business, host the evening event and the focus was on how to prepare and equip themselves for their future careers.
In her role as a Future of Jobs ambassador for the Recruitment and Employment Confederation Sarah was able to share current data and trends whilst also giving advice and support to the girls on the important areas of interview and CV preparation.
'It gives me such pride to see our session featured in the recent issue of Moreton E-News. I love working with young talent and this group of girls are certainly that. Mentoring and supporting them is so rewarding and if I can help in a small way at a pivotal point in their future careers then I am very happy. I look forward to following their progress and am sure they will be successful' Sarah commented after the session.
