Thanks to the pioneering work and ambitions of businesswomen that have gone before us, the boardroom is no longer the domain of the Old Boys Club. Thankfully, the glass ceiling is shattering as women reach their full potential and are being recognised accordingly.

Join IMAGE editor-in-chief Melanie Morris for a morning of incredible inspiration and learn from three women for whom gender is no longer a consideration in getting to the top.
