Q: What do you think is the most important skill for female leaders?
A: Hone into our high EQ talents and use them to our advantage.
Q: What advice would you give other women going into Procurement?

You get farther in life with honey over a hammer, though I’ve had some stakeholders lovingly refer to me as “The Velvet Hammer”!
