Inspiration is all around us - in newspapers, magazines, on our smartphones and tablets. Rarely a moment goes by without someone trying to persuade us to do something, usually in the form of an idealized image, lifestyle or career path that we’re encouraged to imitate.
It is especially common for women to search for inspiration and motivation from their peers or role models. The reason for this: there are still so few women at the top. This is why women seek other successful women whose careers they can replicate and advice they can follow. The stories, guidance and acumens of all successful women in leadership roles are important to the continuing success and employment of women in top-level positions across all professional platforms.
