#SWOT (Strong Women Out There)

Epilepsy Scotland hosted the latest #SWOT (Strong Women Out There) lunch on Friday 10 May, at Ralph and Finns in Glasgow. 

The guest speaker was Lady Susan Haughey CBE who gave an inspiring account of her life, from growing up in The Gorbals, leaving school at 16 with no qualifications to becoming the successful businesswoman she is, being awarded a CBE for philanthropy and entrepreneurism, receiving a Papal Knighthood, and becoming Lord Lieutenant to Lanarkshire.

It was a fascinating story peppered with entertaining anecdotes as well as words of wisdom. She also offered words of advice to Kimberley Burns, who represented the next generation of strong women. A great presentation for which we thank her.

#SWOT was created by Epilepsy Scotland CEO Lesslie Young who believes it is the responsibility of all in leadership roles to share their experience, when, and how their inner strength reserves have needed to be tapped into. She created #SWOT to inspire other women and the next generation of strong women.

A diverse group of women in business and other walks of life, and some still at school or the beginning of their career, listen to an inspiring speaker who shares, not just their journey, but when and why they had to dig deep.

A positive consequence of this event is inspiring the people who attend and raising funds for Epilepsy Scotland.
