International Women’s Day 2022

Has the world changed since you started your business, in relation to you as a female business leader? 

I started my business only 10 years ago and in that time a lot has changed for women but there is still so much more to do to build confidence in those that want to break the boardroom ceiling.

Movements like International Women’s Day provide a place for conversation – a place to encourage change and make a difference. 

So many of our clients have women board members and are committed to diversity and inclusion, this for me is one of the most significant progresses in the past decade.

There are two reasons for this, firstly industry bodies have raised awareness and provided better access to opportunities in sectors where women may not have considered a career and the second reason is that women are becoming more confident in the way they approach achieving their own career goals – from seeking equality in salary or hierarchy to pushing their own boundaries with confidence.

What would be your words of wisdom to young women wanting to start their own business? 

When starting your own business it is important you have a vision and that you believe in that vision. 

Success is not easy, it is a long journey of drive an determination and willingness to change and adapt as your journey unfolds.

You are only as good as the team around you and you can only sell what you excel at. Surround yourself with talent that also believes in your vision.

Confidence and tenacity go a long way to achieving your goals and making a difference to your clients.
