On 18 June, Rosemary delivered a keynote speech at an event organised by the British Embassy Zagreb aimed at inspiring women entrepreneurs in Croatia.

The roundtable was organised by the Embassy in partnership with the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, British Business Centre Croatia and Development Agency Zagreb. Inspiring more women to follow in the footsteps of international role models is especially important right now, according to the British Embassy, as Croatia is in its sixth year of recession and many young women are unemployed.

It was an excellent opportunity for Rosemary to speak at an internationally recognised event alongside British and Croatian women with careers spanning the globe. The audience was made of women from all walks of life, including business people, government officials, academics and media professionals.

Speaking about the event, Rosemary said “I had a fantastic time meeting with some extrordinary women. It was a brilliant opportunity to celebrate some of the many advantages women-run businesses have in terms of growing long-term employment and supporting stable economies”

Overall, the talk was received extremely favourably and Rosemary enjoyed meeting successful business women from the local area.
