In­spi­ra­tional busi­ness­woman shares top tips with stu­dents

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

DED­I­CATED busi­ness­woman Clare Hay­ward told the next gen­er­a­tion of en­trepreneurs to “think out­side the box” when she vis­ited King’s.

Clare is the lat­est mo­ti­va­tional guest speaker to talk in a se­ries of lec­tures to King’s Girls’ Di­vi­sion pupils.

As Chair of Make it Mac­cles­field and on the Board of the Lo­cal En­ter­prise Part­ner­ship work­ing right across Cheshire, she said: “There are huge gaps in lo­cal busi­ness for those with engi­neer­ing, lo­gis­ti­cal and dig­i­tal skills and so many op­por­tu­ni­ties but you will have to be flex­i­ble and ag­ile to suc­ceed. You must be com­mer­cially aware and be able to mar­ket your­self; your suc­cess will de­pend as much on your in­ven­tive­ness and imag­i­na­tion as your hard work and dis­ci­pline.”

He­len Broadley, prin­ci­pal of King’s Girls’ Di­vi­sion, said: “Clare has achieved so much in her life from be­ing the first western women to travel through­out In­dochina af­ter the Viet­nam War; to man­ag­ing and sell­ing a global con­sult­ing busi­ness that was rated as the fifth best com­pany in the U.K. to work for. She is a won­der­ful role model from whom our girls can learn so much at this time of dra­matic change.”
