The #PowerWomen Chat is a brand new event series about up close and personal conversations with leading women in entrepreneurship, business and investment.
Think about it as a late night show where we'll talk about on work, life and everything else.
Our first event will be on Impact Investing with the celebration of the UK launch of the book Integrated Investing - Impact Investing with Head, Heart, Body & Soul.
Men are welcome. :)
