SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - November 10, 2016) - SAP SuccessFactors today announced details regarding its Women in Leadership Luncheon at SuccessConnect Vienna, the premier event for human resources (HR) professionals taking place 28-29 November at the Messe Wien in Vienna, Austria. Broadcast journalist Charlene White will moderate a lively discussion with entrepreneur and EnterpriseJungle co-founder Emma Sinclair, who will share her experience building a business, breaking boundaries and leading in the digital economy.
"SuccessConnect is more than a standard user event; our goal is for it to be the premier event in the industry, bringing together like-minded people who are at the center of business transformation to connect, share and learn from us and each other," said Mike Ettling, president of SAP SuccessFactors. "The Women in Leadership session has quickly become one of the top draws at the event. I'm thrilled to have Emma Sinclair, one of Europe's most successful entrepreneurs at a very young age, share stories of her experience. I know she and session host Charlene White will inspire attendees to think differently and do things differently."
Each speaker offers a successful career perspective:
- Emma Sinclair: Emma is the youngest person to have floated a company on the London Stock Exchange, having done so at age 29. A serial entrepreneur, she now co-leads global software company EnterpriseJungle. An SAP partner company recognized in 2015 as a finalist for an SAP® Pinnacle Award in the Application Developer of the Year category, EnterpriseJungle builds HR-focused, innovative cloud applications designed to give access to information and data people need to be more productive. Her belief that entrepreneurship can change the world led her to be appointed a UNICEF Business Advisor in 2014. Emma regularly commentates for television and newspapers on innovation, business and diversity.
- Charlene White: Charlene is an accomplished journalist and newsreader, who is employed by ITN, where she presents ITV News weekend bulletins and ITV News London. She became the first black woman to present ITV News at Ten, and has since continued to relief host many ITV National News bulletins.
