Work like a Woman: An Evening with Mary Portas

To mark Global Entrepreneurship Week 2018, we will be livestreaming the British Library’s Inspiring Entrepreneurs event. At this exclusive event to mark the launch of her new book – Work Like a Woman: a Manifesto for Change – Mary discusses her incredible career and the realisation that true success comes not through playing the business game – where the rules are set by men, for men – but through embracing the values that really matter. Find out more at bipc.librariesunlimited.org.uk . We are also delighted to welcome successful Exeter based business woman, Rivka Jacobs, who will be joining us before the live-stream to share her story with us, with hopefully time for a few questions. Book your FREE ticket at <a href=Eventbrite" />
