Angela was absolutely fantastic; I thought it was an exceptional event, really interesting to hear her perspective of the challenges of her male-dominated industry and how there were many parallels with some of the experiences that women at MMRA have had, even though on the surface, our industries are very different. The Q&A session at the end was a big highlight.
