Sian Berry, Alistair Darling join Women’s Summit

We’re pleased to announce two new high-profile speakers for the Women of the Future Economic Empowerment Summit on April 2 at the Dorchester Hotel, Park Lane, London.

Alistair Darling and Sian Berry will join our already remarkable line-up of speakers at a day devoted to women’s leadership across business, politics and the environment. Today it emerged that Northern Rock liabilities will be kept off the government’s balance sheet when Alistair Darling announces his Budget in April. (The "Enron Chancellor"?)

Also confirmed on the platform at the Women of the Future Economic Empowerment Summit:

• Indra Nooyi, CEO and chairman of PepsiCo, is regarded one of the world’s most powerful businesswomen. This is a rare opportunity to hear her talk about the need for genuine female leadership.

• Cherie Booth QC will address the need for wide-scale, professionalised mentoring to foster a new generation of women leaders.

• Shami Chakrabarti, the inspirational and challenging director of Liberty, will propose a “women’s solution” to political apathy.

• And Fru Hazlitt, recently named CEO of GCap Media, will make a powerful case for women to be “Entrepreneurial, Independent, Empowered.”
