Speaker for Edinburgh dinner
Dragon to address investment group’s dinner
Jenny Campbell: helping people to succeed
One of television’s ‘dragons’ will be in Scotland next month to address a dinner attended by aspirational women.
Jenny Campbell, founder of YourCash Europe and one of the latest recruits to BBC TV’s Dragons’ Den series, is the guest speaker at this year’s Ambition & Growth Conference dinner.
Ms Campbell will share her inspiring story and passion towards helping people succeed in business.
The conference, aimed at aspiring Scotland-based female entrepreneurs, and dinner take place at Edinburgh’s Sheraton Hotel on 8 March.
In 2014 Ms Campbell was named Vitalise Business Woman of the Year and the following year she was admitted as a Freeman to the Guild of Entrepreneurs in the City of London.
Jackie Waring, chief executive and founder of Investing Women, the organisation behind the Ambition & Growth Conference, said: “Along with her formidable track record in the global banking sector, Jenny really stands out for the work she does to support young people in business and promote a positive message about entrepreneurialism.”
Speakers at the third Ambition & Growth conference are Professor Heather McGregor CBE, Executive Dean, Edinburgh Business School, Heriot Watt University and Mary Harper, Affluent Customer Director at Aviva.
The conference will also feature hands-on participation in useful master classes and the live final of the AccelerateHER Awards pitch competition.
