Speaker Profile: Nadia Finer
Inspiring Girls to Kick Start their Dreams
In her own words Nadia started out as the world's worst trainee accountant and got through jobs as fast as new shoes. She wanted to change her life but needed some inspiration.
Rather than just talking about it, Nadia set off with her friend Emily Nash on a mission to find the country's most inspirational women, (from neuroscientists and novelists, biologists and builders, to entrepreneurs and engineers) to find out how they made their dreams come true. More To Life Than Shoes, the book, was born. In the process they founded a community for women like themselves to share ideas, skills, secrets and success.
''Nadia is a truly inspirational speaker for young women. Creative, practical, articulate and engaging, she challenges her audience to think more imaginatively about the options available to them and, whatever their chosen path, she encourages them to develop their individual skills, to network, and to aim high. Nadia has spoken twice at our school, with excellent feedback from students and staff, and we encourage others to invite Nadia to make a difference to their organisation.'' Pam Jones, Head of 6th Form, Beaconsfield High School
''It's a rare chance for the girls to share their dreams and boost their self esteem. We chose More To Life Than Shoes because of their unique mix of passion and professionalism.'' Rebecca Tigue, Deputy Head of Swanhurst School
