Powerful Connections Breakfast with Frances Morris-Jones

Powerful Connections Breakfast with Frances Morris-Jones

On 28th February 2019, we held the first in our 2019 series of POWERful Connections Breakfasts. The topic of the Breakfast focused on ‘becoming a Non-Executive Director (NED).’ Frances Morris-Jones, POWERful Women Ambassador and Chair for the Oil & Gas Authority, among a number of other NED positions, kindly hosted the discussion for nine senior executive women on the PfW network looking to take this next step in their careers. 

Sharing her wealth of experience and insight into becoming and acting as a Board Director, Frances led an engaging discussion, providing many ‘how to…’ tips, such as on taking your first step, finding opportunities, tailoring your CV, as well as discussing the reality of the role and the responsibilities entailed.


POWERful Connections Breakfasts are part of the POWERful Connections Mentoring Programme.The Breakfasts are offered in an informal setting and hosted by senior women in the industry, for a small group of women to discuss with their host and each other how they can develop professionally and how to overcome the challenges to progress in their careers.

The POWERful Connections Mentoring Programme pairs the most senior leaders and opinion formers in energy with female professionals who are aspiring to move into senior leadership positions with the next five years or so.  The Programme focuses on one-to-one mentoring but also includes group mentoring events, such as speed mentoring and Breakfasts.
