Vanessa Vallely

Author of "Heels of Steel"

Founder of wearethecity.com

 

 

Heels of Steel tracks the trials and tribulations of one of “the most networked women in the UK” and how she left London’s east end, aged 15 to find her fortune in London’s financial district.  Despite her doubters and purely through hard work, grit and determination she manages not only work her way up to what is commonly known as C-suite, but to build 2 successful businesses alongside her corporate career.

 

Having achieved everything she thought she’d ever wanted, Vanessa quickly learnt that success often comes at a great deal of personal cost and compromise. The constant battling and accomplishment for the ultimate grand prize eventually took its toll and drastically altered her definition of ‘success’, encouraging a life-changing move in a new direction.

 

From periods of glittering success to near total derailment due to an unrelenting passion for her career, Heels of Steel unveils the truth behind a woman’s climb to success in the male dominated world of the City.

 

Vanessa will tell the story of her journey as she scaled (and slipped up and down) the corporate ladder. She will also go on to talk about the "Power of Profile", passing on important lessons to avoid being absorbed by the politics and alpha male behaviour still prevalent in so many corporate environments.

 

In conjunction with the Guernsey Literary Festival, we are delighted to welcome Vanessa to WDF.

 

Light refreshments will be served.
