‘Barrett and Moores delve into the real essence of women in leadership roles, specifically but not exclusively in family business. In doing so they dispel many myths, provide compelling concepts to nurture, grow and sustain women business leaders and examples of how women in all types of business can deliver outstanding results through dynamic leadership, high emotional intelligence and a desire to achieve and succeed.’ – Jaqui Lane, CEO and Founder, Focus Publishing
