Panel discussion: The business case for a diverse and inclusive workforce

In the rapidly changing world of media, Sue has been ahead of the curve for three decades, and remains at the forefront of the industry’s evolution. She has helped advertisers such as Mars, DFS, Direct Line Group, Tesco, Merlin Entertainment, and Sky to connect with consumers by bringing a succession of new ideas to the advertising and media industry. In her current role she drives transformation for MediaCom and their clients. In 2016 she reached out to a wider public with the publication of her book The Glass Wall – called the year’s most significant addition to the debate on gender diversity at work. The Glass Wall (co-authored with Pearl and Dean CEO Kathryn Jacob) is both a collection of success strategies for women at work, and an invaluable guide book for businesses that want to more successfully develop the women who work for them. The book has been featured or extracted widely in the media in the UK and abroad, including prominent features in the Times, the FT, the Daily Mail, the Mirror, Good Housekeeping, Grazia, Mumsnet, and on BBC radio.
