From the Catwalk to the Boardroom: Why WX (Women’s Experience) matters
With £50 in the bank new mother Samantha Williams started her own fashion label with no business experience, no mentors and no exit strategy should it all go wrong. After selling her business to a high street brand Sam found herself in a male dominated industry selling technology rather than fashion accessories. She found juggling a young family incompatible with corporate life and welcomed the increased freedom technology has created for women in business. Sam will share her amazing career journey as well as insights from other women’s experiences of the working world.
