Excello employment lawyer Nelu Abeygunasekera will be one of the panel speakers at the RSM Influential Women’s Forum in Fort Lauderdale in Florida on 24 January. Although based in London, Nelu is a regular visitor to the US and has developed a network of professional contacts across the country, most particularly in Florida.
The RSM Forum is designed to inspire, connect and motivate executive women across industry and professional services and this first event of 2019 will see Nelu and fellow panellists discuss their career choice and journey, the impact of diversity and inclusion on the route to the board room, and innovative programmes being developed by employers to promote wellbeing in the workplace.
Nelu commented: “I hope to bring a different perspective to the panel both from an understanding of employment legislation in the UK and the US, but also working for Excello Law, as one of the UK’s leading fully agile law firms, and the benefits from having complete freedom to manage my working life as I choose.
“The Influential Women’s Forum provides a great opportunity for women to hear about the career paths others have taken, the decisions or detours that all of us have to consider along the way and the myriad of opportunities that are available for skilled professional women. I’m really looking forward to the event.”
