  • Women Driving Political Change

Friday, 18 October 2013

Clearly making an impact at Conference, Karren Brady appointed Small Business Ambassador. She introduced herself to delegates at the Conservative Party Conference saying: 'I’m Karren Brady. I’m a businesswoman, business owner, company director and mother of two.'
Furthermore overcoming sexism when Director of BCFC.

'Many of you are entrepreneurs and are sitting here today. I want to say to you that I know the sacrifice you make – the 60-hour weeks, juggling family life and staying awake late at night worrying about how you are going to pay the next wage bill, where you will get your next loan to grow your business, when are you going to take on your next employee.
I know when you start out that you are the financial director, the sales director, the receptionist and the tea maker. It can be lonely.
But it is this government that understands that without small businesses, Britain would not be what it is today.'
She is soon becoming the political apprentice and the one to watch; speculation of a prospective parliamentary candidate or mayor candidacy. 
Karren Brady is also an ambassador for Life Skills an education programme developed by Barclays that aims by 2015 to provide one million young people with the skills they require to find work. It will offer 50,000 work experience opportunities in 2013. http://www.barclayslifeskills.com

Let's hope her political ambitions inspires others to come forward.
