Strong Woman: Ambition, Grit and a Great Pair of Heels by Karren BradyKarren Brady is Britain’s best-known business woman. An inspiration to women everywhere, her incredible success is borne of her passion, impressive business instinct, ambition, and her very genuine, honest, down-to-earth outlook.
This is her story… how she started out as a sparky 18 year old selling advertising space and how she went on to persuade David Sullivan, at the age of 23 to buy a football club – turning that business round to sell it for an incredible ?82 million 12 years later. How she balances her personal life with her professional, her priorities, her life as mother of two and wife. How she coped when doctors told her after a routine scan that she had a brain anheurysm, that she must have a complicated operation immediately and had a 30% chance of not surviving, and how it has since influenced her outlook and priorities.
An overwhelmingly inspiring and real look at work and life, Karren Brady defies convention as a directional business woman in a male industry. This is how she does it, and through her experience, her drive and her skills - it’s a brilliant insight into how you can do it too.
Review: Memoir: Strong Woman: Ambition, Grit and a Great Pair of Heels by Karren Brady
Her career in football started in when, at the age of I enjoyed reading more about her life and career and her no nonsense, practical approach and outlook, even when faced with a life threatening condition. This resonated with me for a different reason though. At a business event many years ago there was a heated discussion when someone commented that only those from privileged backgrounds can set up in business. I wholeheartedly disagreed with this statement, believing that the important thing is the vision and determination of the individual. Michelle Mone and Alan Sugar are testament to this. It is your spirit and spark that makes the difference and determines whether you go for it or not.
I have always had a lot of respect for business woman Karren Brady CBE, and this her autobiography “Strong Woman – The Truth About Getting To The Top“.
