On 25 November we’re gathering together some of the UK’s most successful career women to share their stories, hurdles, milestones and successes, and explain how they’ve climbed the career ladder in a male-dominated business. The informal and informative talk, the second in our successful entrepreneurial series, is entitled How To Succeed In A Male Dominated Business, and will be led by an esteemed panel of guest speakers (below right) who will talk through their careers to date. The night will be followed by a question-and-answer session and an hour of networking with the panel and the Grazia team. Have your questions prepared – and book early. Tickets are selling fast!
