Since deciding at a young age that she would do the opposite of what was expected, Alex Depledge has become a successful serial entrepreneur and advocate for change. After leaving a high-flying career in management consulting, Alex taught herself how to create a business during cram sessions at the Royal Festival Hall and went on to exit from her first business in just three years.
When most expected her to retire on the windfall, Alex got into the trenches again and started another now-multi-million-pound company to prove that she was more than a "one hit wonder" and to serve her broader mission of changing the way we work.
Throughout the ups and downs, Alex has set out to prove - to herself and others - that women can have it all: a career, a family, and a life they love. Eschewing over used concepts like work-life balance, Alex shows us that balance isn't possible, but that meaning and impact are. Join us for this powerful and inspiring conversation about self-belief, discomfort, and the power of human resilience.
