I have had the pleasure of listening to Angela speak at various events and I find she is the most engaging, entertaining, knowledgeable and above all inspirational speaker I have ever heard. Angela is a quietly assertive person who just has the ability to totally lighten up a room with her presence, confidence and her innovative, resourceful and creative mind which just never stops. Angela has a wealth of experience to enhance her speaking engagements whether that is gained from working with a favourite charity or with board directors. Angela understands how business is changing and the importance of being a strong ambassador for women in the business world.
Angela is in every sense a role model and mentor to women – both those at the start of their careers and those already established as business leaders. She is a true champion of the need for women to have a place at the top of industry and in both her personal and professional capacities. She has directly found employment for well over a quarter of a million women; influencing the attitude of countless candidates and clients through her passionate beliefs and innovative business model.
As part of her annual New York agenda, Angela lectures the entire internship programme of some 300 interns on the job market in Europe. Her lectures, always well received, comprise an analysis of the market, pointers for success and an action plan.
By her example and success, Angela has been for over thirty years an inspiration to all business people, men and women alike, and a particular role model to young women who can feel that they, too, can succeed in life and in business by following her example. She was one of the first successful women entrepreneurs in Europe, and the continuing success of her business is an inspiring example to all young women of what can be achieved, in spite of the obstacles that society throws up.
Angela is an eloquent and skilled speaker who has worked hard to raise the professionalism of secretarial staff of all levels inspiring many to develop further, pointing out just how multifaceted our positions are and how important the secretarial role is within any organisation is.
