9780007466757: Strong Woman: Ambition, Grit and a Great Pair of Heels

Karren Brady is Britain's best-known business woman. An inspiration to women everywhere, her incredible success is borne of her passion, impressive business instinct, ambition, and her very genuine, honest, down-to-earth outlook. This is her story...how she started out as a sparky 18 year old selling advertising space and how she went on to persuade David Sullivan, at the age of 23 to buy a football club - turning that business round to sell it for an incredible GBP82 million 12 years later. How she balances her personal life with her professional, her priorities, her life as mother of two and wife. How she coped when doctors told her after a routine scan that she had a brain aneurysm, that she must have a complicated operation immediately and had a 30% chance of not surviving, and how it has since influenced her outlook and priorities. An overwhelmingly inspiring and real look at work and life, Karren Brady defies convention as a directional business woman in a male industry. This is how she does it, and through her experience, her drive and her skills - it's a brilliant insight into how you can do it too.

About the Author:

Karren Brady began her career at LBC when she was 18 years old and swiftly moved onto Saatchi & Saatchi as junior Account Handler. She joined Sports Newspapers Ltd in 1988 and became Director within a year. She was Managing Director of Birmingham City Football Club from 1993 to 2009. In February 1997 the Club launched on the Stock market valued at the time of float at GBP25,000,000; she was the youngest Managing Director of a PLC in the UK. In January 2010, Karren was appointed Vice Chairman of West Ham United FC. Karren is a columnist for The Sun newspaper, one of Sir Alan Sugar's aids on The Apprentice and has written four books.

Review:

'Karren's story will be an inspiration to women everywhere. She is a champion for women. Her story explains to others how to find that balance between family and being a top business woman at work.' LORD SUGAR 'Karren's story shows that with hard work and tenacity it is possible for women to reach the top of any industry and I am sure this book will encourage many more to be ambitious and successful.' MARTHA LANE FOX
