Did you know that by 2025 tourism is expected to account for 10% of the UK’s GDP. The sector is also likely to employ 10% of the UK workforce. These figures were announced at the Revolut Everywoman Awards in London (13 November 2019).
Olympic Holidays is a sponsor of the awards and CEO Clare Tobin, who won the Everywoman Leader of Change Award in 2018, spoke to the audience about her wish for her three daughters to grow up in a world of equalities and opportunities.
She said: “I know that every one of the entrants in the Everywoman awards will continue to be champions of the workplace and I congratulate them all.
The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me
“Today, there is no better quote for today than the philosopher Ayn Rang's: “The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.
“We are delighted to be a sponsor of 2019 Everywoman Awards. After winning the Leader of Change award last year, I went home to my daughters and felt so proud, thinking that because of events and organisations like Everywoman pave the way for better opportunities for women.
“It’s a truly inspiring event and I enjoyed listening to the stories and achievements of all the finalists and winners in our ever-changing industry.
