Wendy Edie, Managing Director of eCom, Scotland’s leading digital learning and assessment specialists, will be speaking as Scotland’s representative at the British Canadian Chamber of Trade and Commerce (BCCTC) virtual event that celebrates International Women’s Day. The event takes place on 8th March, starting at 4.30pm EST (9.30pm GMT).
As Scotland’s representative and a Women’s Enterprise Scotland Ambassador, Wendy will join speakers drawn from England, Wales and Northern Ireland to take part in a panel discussion celebrating women leaders from the tech, international trade, social responsibility and beverage sectors.
The speakers will cover topics including:
• Women in Tech
• Business response strategies in today's changing world of business
• Juggling leadership, family - and staying grounded
• How to challenge a conventional world
• Inclusion in action
• Sustainability in ‘Covid times’
“It’s always an honour, in any context, to be chosen to represent your country,” said Wendy Edie. “It’s a special honour to be able to represent Scotland’s many women business executives who’re playing such a vibrant and vital part in moving forward the Scottish economy in these challenging times.
“With eCom currently building both its reputation and its market share within the Canadian economy, this event is a great opportunity for us to further raise our profile among businesses that need leading-edge learning and assessment services.
“Moreover, importantly, I hope that the insights that I and my colleagues from the rest of the UK are able to provide, especially during the ‘question-and-answer’ session with the audience, will both inform and inspire all the participants to achieve even greater things in the future,” she added.
