This week our featured woman in business is Carolyn Pearson, founder of Maiden Voyage – a female-friendly travel organisation that helps other companies ensure safe travel for their employees and enables women to connect whilst they’re on the road. Whilst Carolyn had previously held several high level positions at corporations, starting her own businesses was a whole new challenge. Here she is joined in conversation by serial entrepreneur Martha Lane Fox, whose success as a cofounder of LastMinute.com during the dotcom bubble rocketed her on to running many other businesses, charities and social enterprises – as well as holding a seat in the House of Lords. Together they talk about how to grow a business on an international stage, growing a community, and ‘the fear of selling’. Plus, we also hear from NatWest’s Head of Enterprise Julie Baker on the importance of role models at every stage of your career.
