I was absolutely thrilled to be awarded the scholarship with Imperial’s Executive MBA programme and am very excited to be a partner with both Imperial’s and 30% Club’s goal for more women in executive and board level leadership. The MBA has and is continuing to provide me with a broader business skillset and awareness which complements my current skill sets.
