Second speaker at Women in the Marine Industry

Successful business woman, Jane Vose, will join Wendy Stowe on the guest speaker list at the Women in the Marine Industry event, hosted by British Marine and sponsored by Barton Marine, at Southampton Boat Show.

Jane might be more familiar to our members when described as ‘mother of Annabel Vose’, who most recently was the strategist with the winning Landrover BAR Youth Americas Cup team in Bermuda (cue another hearty thumbs up and cheer from all at British Marine!).

Jane will talk about her own career starting in the nascent I.T. industry in the 80s and progressing through challenging roles in sales, product management and communications in BP and BT, to her current role as VP strategic marketing at Brightstar, an entrepreneurial global mobile services company. Her experience in the traditionally male dominated I.T. and telecoms industries and the work she does with the government appointed Womens Business Council will reveal interesting insights and parallels with working in our own marine industry. Jane will also share the challenges and realities of mentoring and guiding her daughter as she embarks on her career in the competitive sailing world.
