Women need to get angry

Rage is one of the most effective ways for a business woman to get things done.

That’s an emerging consensus at the Women of the Future Summit.

In response to a question about how to drive the green agenda throughout an organisation, Kresse Wesling, the recycling entrepreneur and a winner of a 2007 Women of the Future Award, says: "Someone has just got be angry about things. They have got to be so passionate."

In the following session, Margaret Heffernan adds: "Entrepreneurs don’t start with a lift – they start with rage and despair. Fru Hazlitt says that she isn’t an entrepreneur. She is. Why? She has rage. "
