I am so delighted that you will be joining me and my friends over a scrumptious brunch at my favourite restaurant Signature, Morningside. I will be sharing my story and some of my experiences (positive and not so great) in corporate as well as business and to engage with you on some of your questions, so please come prepared to ask me anything.
