Celebrating International Women’s Day in Knowsley

Knowsley Chamber of Commerce celebrated International Women’s Day at the Suites Hotel Knowsley and were delighted to invite Molly Harvey to this year’s event as the guest speaker.

Molly has a no-nonsense, thought provoking approach combined with speaking from the heart. The gift of making the complex simple has allowed her to become recognised as a leading authority on leadership and cultural transformation.

By speaking to corporations around the world such as Bank of America, 3M and Santander together with over 500 other leading organisations worldwide, a key part of Molly’s experience is the ability to question and provoke audiences to think differently about the way they work and live.

Currently Molly is an advisor on the board of the Global Angels Foundation which is an international charity transforming disadvantaged communities across the world.

Over the years she has given keynote addresses on leadership at Universities such as Liverpool University and Liverpool Management School, Molly first spoke at the United Nations in New York in 2006 and then again in 2007.

Being a best-selling author of eight books, with 23+ years’ experience of engaging people, companies and communities Molly has produced a range of E-books, CD’s and Podcasts.

Lesley Martin-Wright, CEO of Knowsley Chamber said: “It was a joy so see so many delegates supporting our Knowsley Chamber Women in Business Network. Our special guest and keynote speaker, Molly Harvey, really helped us to focus on International Women’s Day.  

“Reflecting on modern leadership characteristics, Molly gave a practical perspective into the skills, qualities and attributes that we can all develop to become better leaders.

“The session was both thought provoking and interactive and as a result I’m delighted to say that one of the outcomes is that we are establishing a mentoring group for women in business.

“If you are interested in joining the group then contact Sheila Toft here at Knowsley Chamber”.
The event was sponsored by Natwest.
