Our MD, Charlotte, will be following in the footsteps of high profile women such as Theresa May this week when she speaks at the National Council of Women (NCW) Great Britain’s annual conference on Saturday.
The conference, to be held in Darlington this year, is themed ‘Voices for Change in Britain and Abroad’ and will include seminars and thought-provoking discussions on the need for change in society and how this may be achieved.
Charlotte will be speaking after dinner on the Saturday evening about the identity of female business leaders in the 21st Century, a topic she is very passionate about.
She said: “I’m in the business of brand building and I believe a strong personal brand is integral to achieving a robust business brand, therefore identity is an incredibly important matter.
“In today’s modern world, women are still expected to relinquish their identity upon marriage and their children are expected to take the father’s surname. Perhaps it’s this identity crisis that attributes to the fact that women still only occupy less than a quarter of positions on UK boards.
“I’ll be covering controversial subjects like this as well as telling my own story in business so far. It’s a real honour to have been chosen to speak and I’m very excited to share my views.”
The annual conference will attract females of all ages from across the UK including Youth MPs and college students, as well as key representatives from the NCW Policy Committee.
The conference will close by reflecting a global view from the NCW and the sustainable goals established at the UN.
