Produced in conjunction with Bank of Scotland Corporate, the publication contains pen profiles of 100 UK women, recognising creative entrepreneurial business talent across the UK’s private, social and public sectors.
The interactive panel session was one of the highlights of the launch; participants were asked to give their real-time answers to questions dealing with topics such as regulation and whether we should be fostering entrepreneurship in the current climate (this garnered a 100 per cent ‘yes’ response).
All the delegates were extremely optimistic about the prospects for their organisations, despite the recession.
In the publication, Real Business columnist Margaret Heffernan writes: “Entrepreneurial women make money – for themselves and for the country. But (just like their male counterparts) that isn’t what motivates them. Rather they seek the opportunity to discover, stretch and develep who they are. They set out in search of an adventure that’s both personal and public. And the 100 women profiled here have found it.”[asset1]
