She has written in Women on Top about how women succeed in business, and may be better suited to entrepreneurship than men.
Her last book Willful Blindness: Why We Ignore the Obvious at Our Peril was shortlisted for the Financial Times award.
In that she explores why, in an information rich age, the humans fail to understand or act on the risks that in retrospect were so glaring and warnings about them. Her blogs features plenty of thought provoking proposals such as why we should employ autistic people, why conflict is good, staff should be forced to go on holiday, why true leaders peel vegetables and why interviews are a waste of time.
Discuss and Do is run jointly by Frome and District Chamber of Commerce, Frome Creative Network and Forward Space, with support from Somerset County Council CIDF Fund and Burton Sweet Accountants.
The full programme is available at the website or join the LinkedIn Group or Facebook page.
