Women in Property – Tools of the Trade

On 13th February our Senior Associate Joy Stone was a guest speaker at the Women in Property Tools of the Trade event hosted by RISE Structures at VWV offices. The aim of the event was to provide other business people with ideas on executive, managerial and organisational tools that successful business people have used and how they have helped them succeed in their industries. Joy has a keen interest in career development and supporting staff in their professional lives. She explained how Alec French Architects developed its own career structure which grew out of aspirations for the company in terms of what tools employees needed to help deliver successful projects, with the ultimate aim of supporting staff to reach their own potential.
