Thank you to all who took part in the second international FT Women at the Top event.  The conference and dinner once again brought together world-class thought leaders and decision makers to discuss the role of women in business, their contributions as drivers of development and growth, and their inspirational legacy as innovators and influencers in the workplace and beyond.

We'd especially like to thank:
