Debbie Moore celebrated International Women’s Day 2016 with Esther McVey at Greater London Reserve Forces’ & Cadets’ Association.
The focus of the day was leadership in business, mentoring and opportunities for women in the workplace.
Debbie said “Things are very different for women these days, there is much more mentoring for women. In the 1980’s I received lots of letters from women saying they wanted to start their own businesses but their husbands wouldn’t let them and they didn’t have any confidence!”
