In honour of International Women’s Day we have asked our newest team members to tell us all about the women they look up to and why they admire them. They will be the first to tell you that with so many accomplished women to choose from it was no easy task, but see below their final choices.
Shiva Davoodi - Consultant at Bramwith Consulting
“If I had to choose one female, I would chose Patricia Scotland. I respect her professional background and what she’s achieved. She’s worked as a barrister and in parliament. She started a pro bono lawyers panel to provide legal advice to UK nationals imprisoned in other countries. If I remember correctly she established or restructured something else to be able to respond more efficiently to overseas disasters. And she’s also done a bunch of other stuff that’s worth a read. Also she spoke at my uni once and she seemed nice.”
Michael Pham - Consultant, US Procurement Team, Bramwith Consulting
“The most inspirational woman for me would have to be my mother, Lan Lam. I know she’d be angry if I didn’t name her for this, but having the drive to travel across the world in order to give her family a better life has helped me understand the sacrifice and commitment she made to achieve this. She also cooks amazing Vietnamese food which is always a bonus.”
Dan Barnes - Consultant, Bramwith Consulting Limited
“My Great Grandmother – Maggie Naly is my inspirational woman. She worked with Margaret Thatcher as her PR mastermind – acting as a well-known force in the burgeoning public relations industry in the ‘60’s and 70’s. Her services to the industry are honoured by an annual Maggie Nally Memorial Lecture in the Houses of Parliament. Here is a little photo of Maggie and Mrs Thatcher.”
Alex Brunt - Consultant, Bramwith Consulting Limited
“Ruth Bader Ginsburg is my inspirational woman of choice. Ruth was only the second ever female justice elected onto the Supreme Court of the United States, having had a rough upbringing she balanced the challenges of life and obstacles of being a mother alongside making progression in a challenging career path. Having her first child before going to Harvard and then Columbia Law School, where she graduated first in her class. To me she is a great example of someone who has always fought against the odds and not settled for following in the footsteps of others. Of her many admirable qualities, her unquestioning motivation is certainly one, still even now at age 85 campaigning for justice and causes she believes in. I am one of the many looking forward to the film about her coming out soon.”
Robyn Marshall - Principal Consultant, Bramwith Consulting Limited
“For me Oprah Winfrey is one of the most inspirational women in modern times. Overcoming setbacks, adversity and early trauma to become one of the most successful women in History . She also uses her platform to highlight social issues and has set up foundations giving scholarships and funding to girls across the world to further their education.”
Sam Roshdy – Consultant, Bramwith Consulting
“My inspirational woman would have to be my mother, Karima. Despite having to look after two children, she’s always supported us, leading a full-time job whilst also taking care & always being there for us whenever we’ve needed her. I don’t think I can put into words how inspiring I find her and if I can be half a good parent that she was for me, then I would feel blessed. “
