CELEBRITY Ruby Wax will be the headline speaker at an event organised by Yorkshire business networking group Forward Ladies.
The event on March 8 at The Met Hotel in Leeds – which will be attended by leading Huddersfield businesswomen – will also mark International Women’s Day.
Comedienne Ruby Wax (pictured) worked with French and Saunders and reached national fame with her unique interview style. She confronted Imelda Marcos, confounded Donald Trump and got close with Pamela Anderson.
Recently, comedy has taken a back seat and she has completed an MSc in psychotherapy and neuroscience. Ruby is now putting these two skills together to run workshops for business leaders on communication.
Her workshops combine her unique humour with scientific and theoretical learning and involving practical exercises.
Forward Ladies, which is backed by regional development agency Yorkshire Forward, is one of the north’s fastest-growing women’s networking and business support organisations.
The event, which is sponsored by the hotel and Business Link , will be chaired by YTV presenter Gaynor Barnes. Along with Ruby, other speakers will include Sophi Tranchell, managing director of fair trade chocolate company Divine, and motivational speaker Tee Dobinson.
