Represent’s campaign to showcase successful business women has captured the mood of the moment.
We are living in a time when women’s voices have never been louder, bringing to light injustices and inequality experienced by women in all walks of life.
So today in honour International Women’s Day, we asked inspiring women across Scotland to share with us in one word that sums up what it takes to be successful in business. The results may surprise you.
Think about your word of the day and make it your mantra for the future.
Judith O’Leary, managing director, Represent
