This will be an interactive session where Lorna will probe and challenge the audience on why there are so few women at the top, why it matters and what we can do about it. Lorna will empower the audience to better understand what is happening and how they can personally effect change or help others too. With her direct approach of myth busting and truth telling you will hopefully feel energised and inspired.
