Fear change? Fear regret. We learnt how to overcome barriers through our inspirational speakers who have pushed themselves to the limits..
We also hosted Conferences on the same day in two of our global hubs: New York and Dubai.
This year we were excited to have BBC presenter and broadcaster Tina Daheley host the day. As well as hosting the day, Tina interviewed our very own president and Diageo's Chief Marketing and Innovation Officer, Syl Saller.
