Applications for tickets to attend this year's Great British Women in the Car Industry event have now opened, with the star-studded event to take place at the Barbican Centre in London on 20 June.
Citroën's global CEO Linda Jackson and Olympic hockey great Karen Brown will be among the talented line-up of some of the country's most influential leaders.
As keynote speakers, Jackson, a former Great British Women winner, and Brown, an Olympic field hockey bronze medallist and coach of the Rio 2016 gold medallists, will be lending their insights as female leaders inside and outside the motor industry.
It will also feature a discussion panel filled with a wealth of high-profile leaders and moderated by the chair of the Great British Women judging panel, Rachael Prasher. Prasher is the managing director of Haymarket Automotive, which publishes Autocar.
Panellists include Paula Cooper, the first director of Toyota GB’s ConsumerOne function, who will be bringing her 25 years of experience in the motor industry, and JLR’s head of HR for product engineering, Michelle Hepden-Dyer - an industry favourite after transforming the product engineering department’s 11,000-strong workforce during her time at the British manufacturer.
BMW Group’s network facilities manager, Fen Butler, will offer unparalleled retail expertise after delivering the global pilot for Mini’s new corporate identity, alongside Val Risk, Fujitsu’s client executive, who is a renowned market strategy expert and the 2018 Times Business Community Gender Champion.
