Joana Rego hosts Women in Disputes webinar, with guest speaker Felicity Aston MBE

Joana Rego

To mark International Women’s Day we hosted our annual ‘Women in Disputes’ event. This year we celebrated resilience and leading in adversity.

We heard from Felicity Aston MBE, the first and only woman to ski solo across Antarctica. The 1744km, 59-day journey also made Felicity the first person in the world to traverse Antarctica on muscle power alone earning her a place in the Guinness book of records.  Felicity shared her inspiring story of navigating across Antarctica and lessons in personal resilience, pushing boundaries, and ‘keeping on, keeping on’ in the face of extreme adversity, isolation and unimaginable odds.

We then turned over to our panel of industry experts. Polly Wilkins (Partner, Kobre & Kim) Ayse Lowe (Director and Head of European Origination, Bench Walk Advisors) and Joana Rego (Founding Partner, Raedas) who highlighted on their own experience in their respective industries and the impact of the past year.

Reflecting on the themes of resilience and leading in adversity, Polly, Ayse and Joana discussed their views on leading their teams, leading their business, and leading ourselves during times of self-doubt and uncertainty.
