Director, Governance Risk and Internal Control, Mazars
I am delighted to be one of the Finalists for this award – especially having been part of such a strong field representing the best of future leadership in the City.
This year has been, personally, very important, with the birth of my daughter – and the award is a recognition that women play important roles in many spheres, both inside and outside the workplace, and that this often enables us to lead others through difficult circumstances and give us the experience and the empathy to make tough decisions with integrity.
This award is a launchpad for many of us who entered and I am extremely proud to have been a part of it. The calibre of all the applicants bodes extremely well for the City in the future.
