‘If time was measured in heartbeats’ | Dr Yvonne Thompson CBE

Note: Dr Yvonne Thompson CBE is one of our Power Listers.

Yvonne has spent over 30 years working in the communications industry. During this time she campaigned for minorities, small business owners and closest to her heart, race and women’s equality in the workplace, especially the boardroom; work for which she received a CBE and two honorary degrees.

Having spent 15 years being the only woman on a board with nine men, at Choice FM (the UK’s first legal black music radio station, now Capital Xtra), and other boards, she experienced at first-hand how lonely being at the top can be for a woman.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
