Women Who Win

“You can’t give up, you just have to find a different way to be successful — if the door was locked, I’d climb through the window.”

To celebrate International Women’s Day, we’re going inside the mind of some of the most successful women from elite sport, business and the performing arts. I’m lucky to be surrounded by some amazing women — my mum, wife, two daughters, and the mostly female team at Sporting Edge. Whether you're male or female tuning in, let’s celebrate what women have achieved through their discipline, confidence and resilience.

We dive into the Member’s Club Library to learn more about the power of role models, hearing from former Great Britain hockey captain Kate Richardson-Walsh and Director of Actor Training at RADA Lucy Skilbeck. Developing confidence and overcoming self-doubt has been instrumental for former professional football player Eniola Aluko, former NZ rugby union player Anna Richards, and former Great Britain hockey player Helen Richardson-Walsh. We also learn how to have a successful career alongside a vibrant family life, with advice from senior corporate executive Ilaria Gregotti and the FA’s Baroness Sue Campbell. British Paralympic cyclist Dame Sarah Storey and British former skeleton racer and Olympic gold medallist Amy Williams also share their inspirational thoughts to help more women to seize their opportunities.
