In celebration of International Women’s Day (IWD), Heriot-Watt University’s Watt Club invited members and guests to hear the stories of two inspirational female business leaders, EBS’ Executive Dean, Professor Heather McGregor and UK HR Director for Schlumberger and Heriot-Watt alumna, Gill Gordon.

The event held in London was the first of the series “Meet the Leaders: The Stories of Successful Women in Business”. The speakers openly discussed their career paths, talked about obstacles they have had to overcome and some of the key lessons learnt along the way.

Professor McGregor and Ms Gordon also explored IWD’s campaign theme #PressforProgress and the challenges women face in education and business today.

The event attracted alumni in various stages in their career and gave the attendees the opportunity for discussions and networking after the formal part of the programme concluded.
