Leading Beyond Limits: Excelling in Business & Sport

International Women’s Day 2024 panel event

On the eve of this year’s International Women’s Day, a few of the Buchanan team were invited to attend the “Leading Beyond Limits: Excelling in Business & Sport” panel event, kindly hosted by Singer Capital Markets in partnership with Cheslea Women FC in the amazing setting of Stamford Bridge.

The panel comprised of three former England professional sportswomen; Carly Telford, former England and Chelsea goalkeeper-turned commercial player and relationships manager at Chelsea Women FC; Flo Edwards, Founding Director of Hathor Talent, a recruitment business focusing on diversity, equality and inclusion and who has represented England in Netball and is currently taking part in this year’s BBC The Apprentice; and Katie Chapman, former England and Chelsea player who returned to play for her country after not one pregnancy, but three.

The afternoon was filled with an insightful panel discussion on their collective experiences both on and off the field of play, followed by a thought-provoking Q&A session and networking afterwards. It was a joy to be in a room with such inspiring women and to discuss the many, many ways in which skills learned through sports can be so easily transferred to the business world.
