Councillor Susan Hall, Leader of Harrow Council as the first female leader of the Harrow Council. She shared her experience of how she started in her career as mechanic and own her garage in those days where female mechanic were unheard of. She explained of her career and being a mum, she took a career break to focus on bringing up her children before considering a career change to politics. She looked up as Margaret Thatcher as a positive leader who inspired Susan to follow in her footstep. Susan gave some key message to women; “work hard to achieve your dream, keep trying and not to give up!”
