HER AMBITION: Rewriting the rules of success

W London & Sheer Chemistry present WHAT SHE SAID with an incredible panel of bold and inspiring women.

We bring you an insightful panel with game-changing women of colour who have taken risks to rewrite the rules of success and forge their own paths in the world of fashion, beauty, dance, and publishing.

Join the conversation with Florence Adepoju, Patricia Lorde, Precious Adams and Tahlia Gray as we explore what success means to them, the challenges they have had to overcome and how their careers have enabled them to develop a success driven mindset.
