Telling the truth about SME life today

The most powerful woman in business

This year’s World Economic Forum at Davos was chaired by Indra Nooyi, CEO of PepsiCo and perhaps the most powerful woman in business today. Since she took over at the top of the business in 2006, Nooyi has transformed the performance of the food and drinks giant, disposing of "unhealthy" businesses such as KFC and Taco Bell and trying to refocus the Pepsi empire around healthier food and drink – for example, in the takeover of Quaker Oats.

If you can’t make it (or just haven’t been invited) to this year’s Davos, Real Business has an alternative: for on April 2, 2008, at the Dorchester Hotel, you can hear from this most remarkable business woman.

Nooyi will be speaking alongside other remarkable woman business leaders, such as Fru Hazlitt, CEO of Gcap; and Cherie Booth QC, who will address the need for more widespread mentoring in business.
