Inspirational businesswoman shares top tips with students
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.”
