The Congress in Rome was wonderful, 800 women from all around the world. Representatives from the Congo, Taiwan, Japan, Italy, France, Germany, Tasmania, Mauritius, Russia and of course many more. I met with some very influential, successful and interesting business women. Everyone was helpful and encouraging. I delivered a short speech at the Italian Senate which was met with a very positive response which is welcome in such challenging times for the UK. I would recommend our members to attend the Congresses, the next one is in Russia. Until you go you won’t appreciate the empowering experience and the strength of FCEM internationally. We have a new international President Marie Christine Oghly from France and she has appointed a board to support her from all around the globe. With this strong international representation FCEM in my view will grow stronger.
