Wise Inspirational Women

Posted by Vicky Silverthorn on 13th March 2012 (updated: 8th June 2018)

Sometimes it’s great just to hear wise words from inspiring women. Here are some I picked out on various subjects from the wonderful women speakers at the WIE Symposium London – 2012.

The one thing I made sure I jotted down…

“Time is luxury”
Vivienne Westwood speaking on the subject of Climate Change

“It’s all about paying it forward, use your network” (it’s not a bad word)
Founder Dee Poku, introducing the day

“If you don’t enjoy what you do you will always feel that void”
Alex Wek, Model on your job/work

“You can take a good old jump at it and not always are you going to make it to the other side”
Jo Malone, on starting a business and how you have to keep going if it doesn’t always go to plan.

“If you can’t find a way in the front door, always try round the back!”
Jo Malone on the keys making your business successful

“Say No more often than you say Yes”
Anya Hindmarch on starting a business

“Can you imagine getting to a point where you have no choice, move or die!”
Vivienne Westwood on Climate Change. So many people are in that position

*****Another interesting fact I have to share*****

There are three industries where Women earn more than men…


I find this absolutely insane!
