Profusion is delighted to announce that its CEO Natalie Cramp has been included in the History of Parliament Trust’s book on leadership and innovation. Natalie has a profile piece within a section on Women in Leadership and she is included among some of the top entrepreneurs and business executives in the country.
The book, which was launched at an event on 22nd September at Westminster Abbey, was commissioned as part of the Queen’s 95th birthday celebrations and coincides with the 300 year anniversary of the appointment of the first prime minister Robert Walpole. Entitled ‘300 Years of Leadership and Innovation’ it showcases the best of British leadership including those who have shaped British society, past and present; from politicians to captains of industry.
Natalie’s inclusion in the book is on the back of Profusion winning a host of awards and is indicative of the growing importance of both women in tech and the role of data science in UK society.
We caught up with Natalie after the event to see what she thought about this honour:
“I am very humbled to be included in this book.To be written about alongside great business leaders, seems surreal. If you had told me when I started my career I would have a profile about what I do and my journey to get there in a book – which now sits in Parliament – I would have laughed and thought you were mad.I am also very grateful to the many mentors who have supported my career and continue to do so, and the inspirational women from whom I have learnt along the way, not least Veronica Wadley.
“Being written about in this book is an acknowledgment I don’t take lightly – I know there are hundreds of other female leaders that deserve to be in this book too. I also know that it’s crucial for me to continue Profusion’s work in getting more women into the tech industry so they can go on to start their own companies or become senior business leaders. One of the ways we will know we are successful is when there doesn’t need to be a separate section for female leaders in books like this.
