Crystal and Heidi attended the FWE Leaders Lounge featuring Martha Piper on Tuesday April 21. The event was hosted by the Forum for Women Entrepreneurs at Hawksworth Restaurant.
Martha Piper is an established education advocate and inspirational leader. As UBC’s first female President, she succeeded in establishing the university as an international leader in education, community involvement and research. The recipient of numerous honourary degrees and a Board Member of several organizations, Dr. Piper continues to be a leader while encouraging women to achieve their success.
As with previous Leaders Lounge events we’ve attended, we left feeling energized, inspired, and entertained.
Our takeaways from Martha Piper were many, but her wrap-up words of advice will last far beyond this experience: 1) Always carry jumper cables, 2) Put on lipstick at the table if you want to (because if it’s ok for the Queen, it’s ok for you!), and 3) Spend as much as you possibly can on great sheets. More than simple lifestyle tips, these stories represent values we share: making yourself available to help others, acting with confidence, and treating yourself to a good night’s rest so you can wake up each day ready do your best work.
