Judy Murray to speak at Autocar Great British Women – Rising Stars event
Peugeot ambassador Judy Murray OBE will be a guest speaker at Autocar’s Great British Women in the Car Industry event, which will be held in London on Wednesday 19 June.
Murray will speak about her experiences playing professional tennis, coaching world-class players, mentoring her sons Andy and Jamie to success and captaining Britain’s Fed Cup team as part of an ongoing desire to promote the role of female coaches. She will also take questions from the audience.
Murray said: “I’m delighted to have this opportunity to address an event that is predominantly made up of women who are achieving such success in a traditionally male-dominated industry.
“Having talent is one thing, but talent needs opportunity to be able to develop and that opportunity must be available to everyone. I hope I can offer some insight into why having the support, guidance and inspiration to maximise potential can make a real difference, and why diversity is integral to any business succeeding.
“I’m probably best known for my associations with tennis, but anyone who saw me dance on ‘Strictly’ will know that I’m not afraid to step outside of my comfort zone, or to face challenges head-on. If I can share my experiences to help guide or motivate others to achieve more then it will be a fantastic afternoon.”
The event, supported by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), will take place in central London on Wednesday 19 June, running from 1.30pm to 5.30pm, with Murray delivering one of two keynote speeches.
